Error description

  • Rational Developer for System z - RDz - v9.1
    
    RDz APAR PI18944 addressed the problem of the reading the
    pushtoclient.properties files when there is trailing whitespace
    characters in the file.
    
    However, not all fields were checked and changed in this APAR.
    There are more fields that need to be changed in order for the
    push to client to work when the pushtoclient.properties file
    contains whitespace characters to fill lines.
    

Local fix

  • Update the pushtoclient.properties file using an editor for the
    USS file and remove the whitespace characters.
    

Problem summary

  • The RDz client may incorrectly interpret host configuration
    settings when there are extraneous whitespace characters
    embedded in the settings file.
    
    One example is the pushtoclient.properties setting
    config.enabled=saf being interpreted as an invalid access
    control method when a trailing whitespace character causes the
    client to incorrectly conclude that the setting is not equal to
    "saf".  As a result, when an RDz user starts the client with a
    new workspace and connects to the appropriate host, some saved
    configuration/preferences are not downloaded to the client.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The code which interprets the pushtoclient.properties file has
    been modified to trim any whitespace characters before testing
    the setting's value.
    
    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:
