Error description

  • Rational Developer for System z - RDz - v9.5.1
    
    If you leave a C or C++ program open in the editor view and
    restart the workspace it may fail because of the following
    Java.NullPointerException (NPE), which can be found in the
    <workspace>\.metadata\.log file:
    
    !ENTRY org.eclipse.e4.ui.workbench 4 0 2016-06-08 11:17:32.129

    This error occurs only when the outline view is open. If you
    close the outline view before closing RDz with an open c source
    we can restart the RDz client.
