Error description

  • Rational Developer for System z - RDz - v9.5.1
    
    In RDz 9.5.1 implementing the Remote z/OS search dialog after
    enabling the regular expression option to search for an
    applicable member results in a hang.
    
    Reproducible via the following steps:
    1. Right click from a PDS to implement the Remote z/OS search
    dialog.
    2. Enter a Data set member name which exists within the PDS and
    check the Regular Expression option.
    3. Running this search will return as least 1 result.
    4. Select the Add query to My Favorites in Remote Systems View
    option to save this search with an applicable name.
    5. Right click on this saved search and select to Run query
    6. The Search will then run endlessly while not returning any
    results.
    

Local fix

  • Selecting the specific PDS, instead of using the "search
    context", works correctly
    

Problem summary

  • The RDz client evaluated filter strings of search targets when
    the regular expression was used. The evaluated filters were not
    stored in the saved search queries.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The client was fixed to store the evaluated filters to search
    queries in My Favorite nodes of the RSE view when the Regular
    expression was used.
    
    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:
