Closed as program error.
The JCL Editor in Rational Developer for System z 9.5 may show invalid errors for SET statements, for example, in statements like: " SET ONE=,TWO=,THREE=,FOUR=," the JCL Editor appears to expect the ' ' after the equal but it is not required. Additionally for SET statements like: SET GENR=(-0) the JCL Editor shows error "datasetname expected".
In z/OS Explorer, SET statements and EXEC or PROC parameters containing special characters such as + or - within parentheses were incorrectly flagged by the JCL editor parser.
The JCL editor parser.has been updated to allow some special characters to be specified within parentheses on SET, EXEC and PROC statements. The problem listed in this APAR has been resolved with IBM Rational Developer for z Systems V220.127.116.11 Fix Pack which is available from the Recommended Fixes support download page: http://www-1.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?rs=2294&uid=swg27006335
