Error description

  • In Rational Developer for z Systems (RDz) v9.5.1,
    the generated JCL for debugging with DB2 or IMS run-time
    environment enabled, does not have the correct format for the
    TEST parameter passed to the user option file generated during
    the UOPTSTP step.  Here is an example of the incorrectly
    generated TEST parameter:
    
    CEEXOPT  TEST(ALL,,PROMPT,TCPIP&&9.21.5.64%8005:*)
    
    The same issue exists in the current RDz v9.5.1.1+ service
    packs.
    

Local fix

  • Modify the generated JCL, ensuring that there is an
    equal(=) sign after TEST, doubling the ampersand (&) if
    not using the DBM, and ensuring the fourth parameter is
    wrapped in double quotes (") . For the above example, the
    change would be:
    CEEXOPT  TEST=(ALL,,PROMPT,"TCPIP&&9.21.5.64%8005:*")
    

Problem summary

  • When generating JCL for debugging or code coverage with DB2 or
    IMS run-time environment enabled,  the UOPTSTP step does not
    have the correct format for the TEST runtime option.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The TEST runtime option during the UOPTSTP step will now be
    correctly formatted such that the user options do not cause the
    assembler to fail during this step.
    
    The problem listed in this APAR has been resolved with
    IBM Rational Developer for z Systems V9.5.1.3 Fix Pack which
    is available from the Recommended Fixes support download page:
