Error description

  • Rational Developer for System z v9.5 unexpectedly prompts for
    password when opening PL/1 sources for edit with EXEC SQL
    statements. This does not happen in RDz v9.1.
    
    This problem is only observed with PLI sources containing EXEDC
    SQL statements, not with other source code languages.
    
    Steps to reproduce:
    - Connect to DB2 database
    - Activate, in the local compiler options, "Source contains SQL
    statements"
    - Add datatool development to the subproject by using the
    subproject context menu "Add data access development support"
    - Open PL1 a source that contains EXEC SQL statement
    

Local fix

  • Cancel dialog
    

Problem summary

  • When RDz is co-installed with Data Studio and a DB2 connection
    is configured, the PL/I Editor will prompt for password when a
    PL/I source program is opened that contains EXEC SQL statements.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Modified PL/I preprocessor to not prompt for DB2 connection
    password during a routine PL/I parse.
    
    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:
