Error description

  • Rational and IBM Developer for z Systems 9.5.1 systems IBM
    Developer for z Systems 14.x , using z/OS projects, when copy
    replacing a member from PDS to PDS the target member may
    disappear
    
    This can happen using host based projects and if the datasets
    are used in more projects
    
    The customer can reproduce the problem by:
    >> copy the member ABCDEF check
    >> check PDS for member existence
    >> repeat until it fails
    
    Note that it can also occur on the first try.
    
    Most of the time replacing works as expected, but sometimes it
    doesn't.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • When a PDS in the RSE view is added to a MVS subproject in the
    z/OS Projects view and a member in the PDS is replaced, the
    deletion of the member in the z/OS Projects view is occured
    asynchronously to recreate the member while the replacing event.
     Sometimes the deletion of the member in the z/OS Projects view
    is occured after the replacing event in the RSE view is
    completed, so the member is removed since the deletion of the
    z/OS Projects view resources also removes the resource in the
    RSE view.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The RDz client was fixed to invoke the deletion of the member in
     the z/OS Projects view synchronously to prevent delay of the
    deletion.
    
    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:
