    ****************************************************************
    01.Software Analysis wrongly marks COMP-5 as violation of "Use
       binary subscripts" rule.
    02.EXEC SQL statements are not correctly modeled in the Data
       Division for custom COBOL code review rules.
    03.The PL/I rule "Use INITIAL with STATIC data declarations"
       ignores levels and will incorrectly mark a static data
       declaration when all of its sublevels are initialized.
    04.A defect in the "Avoid FIXED DECIMAL delcarations with even
       precision" rule logic marked fixed binary declarations with
       even precision as rule violations.
    

Problem conclusion

  • 01.Modified rule logic to make sure COMP-5 variables are
       recognized as binary.
    02.Modified the UI to add ExecSqlStmt to the DataDivision in
       the COBOL element tree in the wizard for creating custom
       COBOL code review rules. Modified model population code to
       make sure data division EXEC SQL statements are correctly
       modeled.
    03.Modified the PL/I rule "Use INITIAL with STATIC data
       declarations" to not mark a static data declaration that has
       all of its sublevels initialized.
    04.Fixed rule logic to avoid marking binary items as rule
       violations.
