Error description

  • Rational Developer for System z - RDz - v9.1.1
    
    Description :
    Once customer defined the following Cobol editor preference :
    "Save action -> Identify unreachable code", the unreachable code
    is no more detected when they modify and save a Cobol source.
    
    Steps to reproduce :
    - Create a Cobol module with unreachable code
    - Go in Window > Preferences > Cobol > Editor > Save Actions,
    and enable "Perform selected actions on save" and "Identify
    unreachable code"
    - Open the Cobol module in the Cobol Editor
    - Quickly add a space and save the file => the unreachable code
    is not marked as expected.
    

Local fix

  • When you set the "Identify unreachable code" save action, the
    unreachable code is displayed only if you wait long enough for
    the parser to finish its job before saving the file to trigger
    the save action.
    

Problem summary

  • Show Program Unreachable code was being invoked without
    completion of the parser which caused an NPE.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Need to wait for the parser to complete before Show Program
    Unreachable code is invoked.
    
    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:
