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)
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.
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 V184.108.40.206 Fix Pack which is available from the Recommended Fixes support download page: http://www-1.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?rs=2294&uid=swg27006335
