    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:                                         *
    * When opening and closing files, the worbench does not        *
    * release memory, and if a user opens and closes very large    *
    * files, such as spooled job output, out of memory errors may  *
    * occur.                                                       *

Problem conclusion

  • This problem was caused by the code coverage annotation ruler
    retaining a link to an editor even after it was closed.  The
    ruler will now detect when the editor closes and clear any
    internal references.
    This fix applies to
    - IBM Debug for z Systems
    - IBM Developer for z Systems
    - IBM Developer for z Systems Enterprise Edition
