Error description

  • Rational Developer for System z - RDz - v9.1
    Attempts to generate JCL for Compile Link result in
    java.lang.NumberFormatException
    
    If you have added a non-numeric value to the field,
    "How Many existing link library data sets precede this entry?"
    then you may experince this error.
    
    If you attempt to generate jcl and there is never a
    dialog stating that, "JCL was successfully generated",
    then you should check the .log file, which is found in
    for the workspace\.metadata folder, for an error such as this:

    To recreate this issue:
    Open Property group Management view
    Edit or create new Property Group
    Go to the Link tab
    Expand ELAXFLNK
    Click checkbox "Specify the position of the link libraries"
    Enter a non-numeric value in the
    "How Many existing link library data sets precede this entry?"
    field
    Save the property group
    Associate a member with that property group
    Attempt to generate JCL
    

Local fix

  • Remove any non-numeric characters from the field,
    "How Many existing link library data sets precede this entry?"
    on the Link tab of the property group.
    

Problem summary

  • The field "How Many existing link library data sets precede this
    entry?" on the Link tab of the Property Group editor, was
    intended to only allow for numeric values, however the text
    entry field did not previously do any type of restriction. It
    allowed all characters to be entered.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The field "How Many existing link library data sets precede this
    entry?" on the Link tab of the Property Group editor, has now
    been modified to only accept numeric values.
    
    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:
