Error description

  • Rational Developer for System z - RDz - v9.1.0
    
    The "create paragraph" quick-fix in the COBOL Editor may fail
    with the Java StackOverflowError for COBOL programs having more
    than 8000 lines of code.
    
    It can take several minutes to display the quick fix options for
    some programs.
    
    Recreation scenario:
    Open a large COBOL program using the COBOL editor
    Add Perform XYZ
    Highlight Perform XYZ
    CTRL+1 or
    right click and select Quick fix
    
    Eventually this will give you the option to create a new
    paragraph for XYZ.  When you select to create the new paragraph
    you may receive a StackException.
    

Local fix

  • You can modify the -Xss parameter in the eclipse.ini to
    alleviate this issue.
    

Problem summary

  • Based on how long the program and the complexity inside the
    source  program some options to create new paragraph at
    different locations inside the source program cause issues.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Need to change the implementation to create new paragraph at the
    end of the source program.
    
    The problem listed in this APAR has been resolved with
    IBM Rational Developer for System z V9.1.1.2 Fix Pack which
    is available from the Recommended Fixes support download page:
