  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • In Rational Developer for z (RDz) v9.5.1.4, running the software
    analysis in batch for applications with a syntax error results
    in return code of 0 instead of return code of 8. For example
    looking at the job output the following can be seen:
             . RegistrationUtils.getVersionString() : Returning
    version v9.5.1.4
             . COBOL Code Review analyzing resource 1 of 1 -
    /USER.TEST.COBOL/ABC01.cbl
             . Syntax Error?ABC01.cbl
             . 25: "ERROR_TOKEN"
             . Result count = 0       <---- incorrect return code

Problem conclusion

  • 01.Modified parser to support class conditions surrounded by
       parentheses.
    02.Modified the COBOL parser to tolerate ENTER statements.
    03.Modified the PL/I parser to automatically resolve the
       built-in CICS data declarations.
    04.Modified the parser to properly handle continuation
       characters.
    05.Modified SQL parser to correctly handle qualified PL/I
       references.
    06.Modified the code that searches copy libraries for copy
       books to cache the location of copybooks that are found,
       reducing the amount of searching that the application needs
       to do.
    07.Modified the error reporting for population of the COBOL
       Application Model to supply file and line information for
       errors.
    08.Modified the PL/I parser to support missing macro language
       features.
    09.Modified headless batch code review to return RC 8 when a
       syntax error is encountered.
    10.Modified the PL/I custom rule API to support a way to
       identify INCLUDE statements in a program.
    11.Modified the COBOL Application Model population code to
       correctly handle implicitly declared data items.
    12.Modified the rule so that it correctly counts the lines in
       an inline PERFORM.
    13.Modified the parser to correctly handle complex EDIT
       clauses.
    14.Modified the PL/I parser to correctly form symbols for
       handles to complex structures.
