Error description

  • In IBM Developer for System z v14 the property group field
    "ADDITIONAL RUNTIME JCL HERE" becomes corrupted in generated
    JCL.
    
    Reproduction scenario:
    1) - Open and create property group for COBOL
    2) - At "Run" tab >> "Debug" "JCL Preview" lines 2-4 observe
         contents.
    3) - At "Procedures and Steps" >> "ELAXFGO" >> "RUN" field
         "Additional JCL" place JCL in lines 2-4
    4) - At "Run" tab >> "Debug" "JCL Preview" lines 2-4 observe
         contents are unchanged
    5) - Assign property group to <hlq>.COBOL.SOURCE(HELLO)
    6) - Create JCL from project for link, run debug
    7) - At "Run" tab >> "Debug" "JCL Preview" observe lines 2-4
         and observe contents //* ADDITIONAL RUNTIME JCL
    
    The problem can be reproduced in IDZ14.0, even without the
    additional JCL under the Run->ELAXFGO->Run.  The EQAV4LIST
    preview under the Run->Debug does not take effect. Adding data
    set in the session options' Source Lookup does not add the
    listing file correctly. Even when EQAV4LIST is in the JCL
    preview under debug, it is not in the generated JCL.
    

Local fix

  • Add the DD EQAV4LIST in the additional JCL section under the
    Run->ELAXFGO->Run. Then the debugger should start correctly in
    standard mode.
