Error description

  • In Rational Developer for System z (RDz) 9.5.1, the real time
    syntax check in a COBOL source with SQL EXEC statement
    containing string literals and COBOL style line continuation
    result in warnings. Here is an example the SQL EXEC statement:
              EXEC SQL select
                xmlquery('
          -      'employee List;
          -      '
          -      ' (: first name  :)
          -      ' (: last name     :)
        ........
        ........
               END-EXEC.
    

Local fix

  • Disable real time syntax checking for the SQL EXEC statements by
    selecting Window > Preferences > Data Management > SQL
    Development > EXEC SQL statements and then uncheck "Validate
    statement syntax"
    

Problem summary

  • COBOL style string literal line continuations are not correctly
    handled by RDz's EXEC SQL parser.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Modified code to correctly handle COBOL style string literal
    line continuations in RDz's EXEC SQL parser.
    
    The problem listed in this APAR has been resolved with
    IBM Rational Developer for z Systems V9.5.1.2 Fix Pack which
    is available from the Recommended Fixes support download page:
