Error description

  • IDz 14.0 / RDz 9 Autolocate expanding in MVS Filterpools fail
    when RSE menu "Show Filter Pools" is checked
    
    This occurs when the user has in the Remote Systems Tree view
    with menu item "Show FilterPools" selected.
    
    The problem that the tree view is not expanded is observed:
    * When, after submit JCL the "Locate Job" button is selected
    * When "open declaration" is selected from a dataset definition
    in the JCL editor.
    
    The <workspace>\.metadata\.log shows:
    For the open declaration:
    java.lang.NullPointerException
    at com.ibm.etools.zos.subsystem.jes.JESSubSystem
                .getChildren(Unknown Source)
    at org.eclipse.rse.internal.ui.view.SystemViewSubSystemAdapter
                .getChildren(Unknown Source)
    at org.eclipse.rse.ui.view.AbstractSystemViewAdapter
                .getChildren(Unknown Source)
    ....
    For the Submit/Locate Job: The exception the stacktrace is not
    identical to the above but the root cause is the same. Both
    stack traces show the same NullPointerException in
    com.ibm.etools.zos.subsystem.jes.JESSubSystem.getChildren(Unknow
    n Source)
    
    !STACK 0
    org.eclipse.swt.SWTException: Failed to execute runnable
        (java.lang.NullPointerException)
        at org.eclipse.swt.SWT.error(Unknown Source)
    ....
    Caused by: java.lang.NullPointerException
        at com.ibm.ftt.resources.zos.PBResourceMvsUtils$2
                .run(Unknown Source)
        at org.eclipse.swt.widgets.RunnableLock
                .run(Unknown Source)
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • When the Remote Systems view option to 'Show Filter Pools" is
    checked, the function that locates a Job after submission isn't
    finding the job.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The function that locates job was not taking into account the
    scenario where filter pools are shown in the Remote Systems
    tree.  In order to reveal the Retrieved Jobs, it's parent filter
    pool must first be expanded.
    
    The problem listed in this APAR has been resolved with
    IBM Rational Developer for z Systems V9.5.1.4 Fix Pack which
    is available from the Recommended Fixes support download page:
