Error description

  • In RDz v8.0.1user sees the following problem:
    
    RDz client selects a connection in RSE view, and selects
    
    properties->Host.
    
    Then under Default Encoding there are two choices, of which
    first is
    pre-selected:
    
      - Default from Remote System
    
      - Other (pulldown)
    
    
    
    If the user select  Other and saves the connection. Then the
    setting is
    changed to "Other" permanently. In other words, if he reopens
    the
    properties, an wants to set it back to "Default from Remote
    Systems" it
    does not take effect - reopening the properties still shows
    "Other "
    selected.
    
    Workaround:
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • When the user switches back from using a specific encoding that
    happens to be the same as the default to the default, RSE does
    not reset the encoding to use the default.  The problem is that
    RSE incorrectly avoids updating the setting if the previous and
    new encodings match.
    

Problem conclusion

  • RSE should always update the setting, even if the new and old
    encodings don't match.
    
    The problem listed in this APAR has been resolved with
    IBM Rational Developer for System z V9.5.1.1 Fix Pack which
    is available from the Recommended Fixes support download page:
