  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • In RDz v9.5.0 a compare with each other operation does not work
    if BIDI is enabled.
    
    Scenario:
    1- Enable BIDI development on RDz preferences:
    Preferences > Bidirectional development:
    - check Bidirectional development capabilities
    - check Search and replace bidirectional text in local files
    - check Compare files containing bidirectional text
    
    2- Connect to RDz server on z/OS
    3- On CARMA Repositories view, search for elements
    4- On Search Result view, select 2 elements, then right click
    and select Compare With > Each other
    
    What is expected:
    The Compare view should be displayed.
    
    What is observer:
    Nothing happens. Opening Error view or editing .log file shows
    the exception:
    "java.lang.ClassCastException:
    com.ibm.ca.endevor.ui.search.EndevorSearchElement incompatible
    with com.ibm.carma.model.CARMAMember"
    
    No problems if BIDI preferences are not checked.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • After performing an Endevor Search, the user attempts to Compare
     two resulting elements with each other but the action results
    in an Exception entry in the Error Log.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Endevor Search elements have a different Java type than CARMA
    Repositories elements.  The Compare action needed to be modified
     to handle both types of elements.
    
    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:
