Error description

  • In Rational Developer for System z (RDz) version 9.1.1, special
    German characters in JCL are not displayed correctly after the
    JCL is re-submitted from the job. You can recreate it in the
    following way:
    - Make sure the host code page (IBM-273) is set correctly on the
    MVS Files node in Remote Systems view.
    - Submit the JCL with special German characters (such as a with
    umlaut, o with umlaut, etc.) from Remote Systems view.
    - Retrieve the job associated with the JCL by clicking on
    "Locate Job" button of the Job Submission Confirmation dialog
    and select "Show JCL" by selecting the job. The special
    characters are displayed correctly.
    - Re-submit the JCL by selecting the JES job in Remote Systems
    view. The special characters are NOT displayed correctly.
    
    The same issue can be seen in RDz 9.1.1.1.
    

Local fix

  • Open the JCL from Remote Systems view
    

Problem summary

  • JES Resubmit Action does not set the encoding correctly when
    creating the input stream reader.
    

Problem conclusion
