Error description

  • In Rational Developer for System z - RDz - v9.5.1.1, comparing 2
    members,
    one with PLI extension and one without extension, raises error:
    
    
    java.lang.NullPointerException
        at
    com.ibm.systemz.pl1.editor.core.ftt.IncludeFileProvider.findCopy
    book
            (IncludeFileProvider.java:88)
    
    
    Steps to reproduce:
    
    - connect to RDz host
    - On remote systems explorer, select members
    USER182.ATEMP(TSTPLI1) which has no extension
    and USER182.LABS.PLI(TSTPLI1) which has PLI extension
    - right-click on the selection and select menu Compare > Each
    other
    => NullPointerException is raised
    

Local fix

  • add a PLI mapping for USER182.ATEMP(TSTPLI1)
    

Problem summary

  • In Rational Developer for System z - RDz - v9.5.1.1, comparing 2
     members,
    one with PLI extension and one without extension, raises error:
    
    
    java.lang.NullPointerException

    - right-click on the selection and select menu Compare > Each
    other
    => NullPointerException is raised
    

Problem conclusion

  • Modified code so that when a file without a file extension is
    being treated like a PL/I file in the compare scenario, the
    include file provider knows how to treat the file without the
    file extension.
