Error description

  • Rational Developer for System z (RDz): RDZ client 9.5.0 does not
    correctly extract COBOL statements using the functionality
    Refactor > Extract Paragraph into a new section.
    
    Steps to reproduce
    - Select valid contiguous COBOL statements
    - Then right click -> refactor -> Extract paragraph
    - In the Extract Paragraph wizard:
      Enter T001 in new paragraph name field
      Select extract in a new section
      Enter T001-SECTION in new section name field
      Select at the end in the Extract after section
      Then click OK
    - In the Editor:
      The 'N' is missing in the perform statement
      PERFORM T001-SECTIO instead of PERFORM T001-SECTION
      The fall-through paragraph is wrongly generated
      FT-T001.
      GOBACK.
    

Local fix

  • Removed the fall-through paragraph wrongly generated, closed
    and reopened the member to have the complete PERFORM
    T001-SECTION
    

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED: Rational Developer for z Systems users
    attempting to refactor COBOL source into a new Section.
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:  When code is refactored to the end of the
    program a fall through protection paragraph needs to be
    generated.  When the refactor is intended to create a new
    Section, the fall through protection logic is incorrectly
    generated as the first paragraph inside the new Section.
    ****************************************************************
    

Problem conclusion

  • ****************************************************************
    Problem Resolution: The code generation location for the fall
    through protection paragraph was changed so that it will now be
    generated prior to the start of the new Section.
    ****************************************************************
    
    The problem listed in this APAR has been resolved with
