Error description

  • In IDz v14.0.0.4, the following issues have been observed in
    MVS Batch Application debug configuration:
    
    1) If a saved MVS Batch Application Debug Configuration with the
    use of an existing JCL is run to start a debug session, <JBN> in
    the debug configuration profile does not match the job name from
    the existing JCL causing the launch of debugger to fail.
    
    2) If no load module is specified in the "Remote Profile" tab,
    the changes in the launch configuration cannot be saved.
    

Local fix

  • 1) none
    2) Ensure there is either a load module name or * is specified
    in the "Load Module or DLL" field.

    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:                                         *
    * When no load module is specified in the Remote Profile tab,  *
    * the changes in the launch configuration cannot be saved. In  *
    * addition, when using an MVS Batch Application Debug          *
    * Configuration to launch a debug session using existing JCL,  *
    * the <JBN>  option in the remote debug configuration profile  *
    * does not match the job name from the existing JCL causing    *
    * the launch of debugger to fail.                              *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    

Problem conclusion

  • The MVS Batch Application debug configuration was updated to
    handle the situation when no module is specified in the launch
    configuration, and to properly detect the job name from the the
    existing JCL prior to generating and submitting the job to the
    host.
