APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • IBM Explorer for z/OS Version 3.0.0.1 or
    Rational Developer for System z - RDz - v9.5.1 iFix2, a member
    already edited in ISPF can still be edited in RDz.
    
    Steps to reproduce:
    
    1- in ISPF, user USERA edits member MY.PDS(MEMBR1)
    2- in RDz, user USERA edits same member MY.PDS(MEMBR1)
    3- in RDz, editor is not opened in readonly mode but in write
    mode:
         member can be modified and saved.
    

Local fix

  • there is no known workaround at this time.
    

Problem summary

  • A user may edit the same member from RDz and another client,
    such as ISPF, at the same time.  In order to prevent a user from
     making divergent changes to the same member, the member lock
    should prevent this scenario.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A change was made allowing a user to edit a member that he/she
    already has the lock for.  This turns out to be problemmatic
    because it leaves a user who is not careful vulnerable to making
     the member out-of-sync with another client.
    
    The problem listed in this APAR has been resolved with
    IBM Rational Developer for System z V9.5.1.1 ifix4 which
    is available from the Recommended Fixes support download page:
