Error description

  • In Rational Developer for z Systems (RDz) v9.5.1 or IBM
    Developer for z Systems (IDz) v14.0.0.3 ifix2, the generated JCL
    from compile/link/go or compile/link/debug may have missing or
    incorrectly defined run-time program parameter causing the JCL
    not to run successfully. For example,
    
    for compile/link/debug, part of the JCL may look like this:
    
    //GO    EXEC   PROC=ELAXFGO,GO=TESTGO,
    //           LOADDSN=USERA.LOAD  <-- syntax error, missing comma
    //         PARM.RUN=('STRING=ABC/'
    //    'TEST(,,,TCPIP&&12.123.456.789%8001:*)')
    //******* Additional STEPLIBs ******
    //
    
    And for generated JCL for compile/link/run, PARM.RUN is missing
    from the JCL.
    
    The same problem can be reproduced with RDz 9.5.1.5 as well as
    IDz 14.0.0.4.
    

Local fix

  • Before submitting the JCL, edit and manually modify it to
    include the correct PARM.RUN value and syntax
    

Problem summary

  • In the case of generating JCL for compile, link, debug, IDz was
    not checking for the presence of program paramters in the
    property group before writing the preceding LOADDSN line in the
    JCL so no line continuation comma was being added before the
    PARM.RUN line was written.
    
    In the case of generating JCL for compile, link, go, the
    presence of program parameters was not checked at all due to an
    erroneous flag setting.
    

Problem conclusion

  • In both cases, the code now checks for the presence of program
    parameters is checked before writing the LOADDSN line in order
    to append a line continuation comma if necessary, and the
    previously erronerous flag now indicates a PARM.RUN line needs
    to be written.
    
    The problem listed in this APAR has been resolved with
    IBM Rational Developer for z Systems V9.5.1.6 Fix Pack which
    is available from the Recommended Fixes support download page:
