Rational Developer for System z (RDz) v184.108.40.206 and Rational Team Concert Integration (RTC) v220.127.116.11 transfers files as binary during drag and drop or copy/paste from a local zComponent project to a remote PDS. Steps to reproduce: 1- use SCM zImport --binary command to import a COBOL program to RTC 2- load it to a local workspace using RTC Find and Load Eclipse projects 3- connect to z/OS from the Remote System Explorer 4- drag and drop or copy/paste a program from the local zComponent project to a remote PDS 5- open the remote program in LPEX or COBOL Editor: characters are not readable
Create the remote member manually and copy its content using copy/paste from the editors
MVS files containing non-round-tripable characters can be imported into RTC as binary rather than being converted to UTF-8. Those files are also loaded from RTC to the workstation using binary transfer. When such files are drag/dropped or copy/pasted from the workstation to an MVS host, they need to be transferred as binary. RDz was not checking with RTC to see whether or not the files were binary before transferring them which led to problems.
RDz now checks RTC metadata before transferring RTC files from the workstation to the host, and if they are binary, uses binary transfer. The problem listed in this APAR has been resolved with IBM Rational Developer for System z V18.104.22.168 Fix Pack which is available from the Recommended Fixes support download page: http://www-1.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?rs=2294&uid=swg27006335
