Error description

  • --- Features ---
    
    -z/OS Debugger host support for the new Developer for z Systems
     Enterprise Edition V14.0.0.3 "Remote IMS Application with
     Isolation" launch configuration.
    
    -Support for Automatic Binary Optimizer V1.2.
    
     The PTF for APAR PI65051 for PD Tools Common Component is also
     required for this support.
    
     Note: If you use IPVLANGO to process an ABO SYSPRINT +
           Enterprise COBOL SYSDEBUG to create a IPVLANGX for z/OS
           Debugger, the variable values can not be listed in a
           z/OS Debugger session.
    
    -The EQAJCL ISPF Edit macro has been updated to support DBMDT.
    
    -Update Debug Tool Code Coverage so that the DBMDT TEST runtime
     parameter is treated the same as the TCPIP runtime parameter.

    -ABEND ASRA after calling a C-Program from Assembler.

    -Debug Tool Utilities is loosing the LIBDEF settings from
     previous panels.
     (PI68652 at 13.1)
    
    -Debug Tool encounters an ABENDS0C1 or ABENDS0C4 in EQA00SVC
     due to an incorrect saved CAA address on second EXEC CICS
     LINK.
     (PI68537 at 13.1)

    -When using Debug Tools IMS Transaction Isolation, data sets
     aren't created.  This involves the Debug Tools Utilities,
     panel 4.6 "Administer IMS Transaction Isolation Environment".
     (PI69679 at 13.1)
    
    -Debug Tools IMS Transaction Isolation -
     Parameter "TXNNAME10" exceeds the allowable length
     VGET (TXNNAME10).
     TXNNAMEx needs to be changed to TXNNAMExx.
     (PI69697 at 13.1)
    
    -Debug Tool Utilities 8.1.1 User settings are not used if
     original JCL does not contain a job card. Instead
     //DUMMYJC JOB ,NOTIFY=&SYSUID,USER=&SYSUID,
     // MSGCLASS=H,MSGLEVEL=1,TIME=(,15),REGION=0K
     is generated

    -Debug Tool V13.1 PTF UI39786 APAR PI59113 contained an
     enhancement described as:
    
     - Improve remote code coverage performance for RD/z Code
      Coverage.
    
     This was found to cause RDz Code Coverage to not show COBOL
     Paragraph details and to cause run time abends (sometimes
     ABENDS0C1 in EQA00STO).
    
     To correct these problems, this PTF removes the 'remote code
     coverage performance enhancement for RD/z Code Coverage'.
     (PI71028 at 13.1)
    
     This same enhancement was in z/OS Debugger V14.0 GA, and this
     PTF to z/OS Debugger V14.0 performs the same removal as
     PI71028 did for Debug Tool V13.1.
    
    -Abend in EQA0SBKP during RD/z CC 9.1.
     (PI71184 at 13.1)

     V5 modules loaded from LLA.

    -Enterprise COBOL V5 and V6.
    
     If you have a table looking like following:
     01  TESTINDEX.
       05 TESTIXX               PIC X(4).
       05 TESTIYY               OCCURS  50.
          10 TESTZZ             PIC  X(08).
    
     LIST TESTZZ(2) the value for TESTZZ(1) is displayed.
    
     When you have a group inside an array, with COBOL V4 you were
     able to list a single member of the group as though it's an
     array of its own.  With COBOL V5/6, the expression evaluator
     didn't allow this.  Instead Debug Tool only listed the member
     of the first element of the array.
    
     Debug Tool has made the COBOL V5/6 expression evaluator behave
     more like it did for COBOL V4.
