Error description

  • In Rational Developer for z Systems 9.1.1 and 9.5.0, the @
    symbol in an
    embedded JCL statement causes the content assist menu to split
    the display.
    
    Using the following JCL sample,
    
    //RUNJOE1 EXEC PGM=JOE1,REGION=4M
    //*EQAOPTS  DD DISP=SHR,DSN=RDZ.DTCC.EQAOPTS.EXAMPLE
    //EQAOPTS  DD DISP=SHR,DSN=RDZ.DTCC.EQAOPTS.EXAMPLE
    //GOIN     DD DISP=SHR,DSN=RDZ.DTCC.GO
    //CEEOPTS  DD DISP=SHR,DSN=RDZ.DTCC.CEEOPtS(CC@RDZ)
    //*CEEOPTS  DD DISP=SHR,DSN=A123456.CEEOPTS(CC)
    
    open the JCL editor and select by right clicking on CC@RDZ to
    display the Content Assist menu.
    The editor opens with the theee selections of Open, Browse, and
    View.
    All selections display with labels that are split incorrectly.
    
    Open 'CC                            RDZ'
    View 'CC                             RDZ'
    Browse 'CC                         RDZ'
    
    Because of the split, an error is returned, but the error itself
    shows the member name correctly without the split.
    The JCL also submits correctly.

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:    The '@' sign is a valid character to use
    when naming a Partitioned Data Set member.   In the COBOL, PLI
    and JCL editors in Rational Developer for z Systems it is
    possible to select a member name and right click to see actions
    such as Open, View and Browse.  When the member name contains
    the '@' sign, Eclipse replaces the @ sign with a tab and the
    menu action text becomes incorrect.   The action functions
    correctly when selected, it is just difficult to read since the
    @ sign has been replaced with several spaces.
    ****************************************************************
    

Problem conclusion

  • ****************************************************************
     Problem Resolution:  The menu actions have been adjusted so
    that they will now display correctly even when the member name
    contains the '@' sign.
    
    ****************************************************************
    
    The problem listed in this APAR has been resolved with
