APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • In RDz v9.1.1 When users drag and drop source files from the
    host to the client using the z/OS Project view a preference file
    is generated as expected. The problem occurs when the user
    update their workspace encoding to UTF-8 to match the host so
    the encoding is the same to prevent the pref file from being
    generated, but the file is still generated.
    

Local fix

  • NA
    

Problem summary

  • In RDz v9.1.1 when users drag and drop source files from the
    host to the client using the z/OS Project view the charset of
    the target file is set to ensure that the target file encoding
    matches the source encoding. The problem is that the charset is
    set even when the source and target encodings match.  This
    results in an unwanted outgoing change for files dropped into
    shared RTC folders.
    

Problem conclusion

  • RDz now updates the charset of the target file only when the
    source encoding and target encodings do not match.
    
    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:
