Error description

  • IBM Rational Developer for z systems - IDz - RDz
    
    When you use the COBOL editor to open a file that is controlled
    by a change management tool such as Endevor in read only mode
    and you use the split mode twice, the second instance of the
    split mode may open the file in edit mode even though the file
    is read only.
    
    Steps to reproduce:
    
    From the CARMA view select a COBOL program when prompted open
    it in Read Only mode.
    Select Window > Editor > Toggle Split Editor
    File is still open in browse only, and typing is NOT allowed
    Close split window
    Select Window > Editor > Toggle Split Editor  again
    Now you are able to type
    

Local fix

  • Be sure that users cannot make a change to the file by
    protecting the file in RACF or some similar system security
    

Problem summary

  • When a COBOL editor that was in read-only mode is split and then
     the split is closed and then split again, the read-only
    property gets lost and the editor wrongly becomes editable.
    

Problem conclusion

Temporary fix
