Error description

  • Rational Developer for System z (RDz): Using RDz 9.1/RTC 5.0
    Content Assist wrongly changes the line delimiter of a COBOL
    file when the line delimiter is set to Platform in Jazz Source
    Control.
    Steps to reproduce:
    - The line delimiter is set to Platform
    - Add the template EXEC SQL End-EXEC using Content Assist
    (CTRL+Space) in a COBOL member
    - Select the template to insert it in the code then save the
    member
    - There is an unresolved change in the "Pending Changes" view in
    RTC
    - Attempt to check-in the change then receive a pop-up dialog
    with the following:
    ''Inconsistent line delimiters were encountered in files(s) to
    be checked in. This can be an indication that the files may
    actually have binary content''.
    

Local fix

Problem summary
