Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:  Rational Developer for System z version 9.1.1
    users who are remotely debugging COBOL or PL/I source.
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: While remotely debugging COBOL or PL/I
    source code the user decides to use the Show In > Program
    Control Flow menu action.  The view will show but the diagram is
    not be generated. This occurs when the action is chosen from the
    source that is being debugged.
    ****************************************************************
    

Problem conclusion

  • The Program Control Flow view was not working correctly when
    opened from source that is being debugged.  To work around the
    issue the original source file can be opened using the COBOL
    editor or the PL/I editor, outside of the debugger.  From that
    edit session the Show In > Program Control Flow menu action can
    be used to successfully view the diagram.
    
    The view will be modified to fix the scenario described in the
    Problem Description to also allow the diagram to be viewed from
    the source that is being debugged.
    
    The problem listed in this APAR has been resolved with
    IBM Rational Developer for System z V9.1.1.3 Fix Pack which
    is available from the Recommended Fixes support download page:
