APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • When customers run scans in batch, they may have made a mistake
    in the configuration so that no actual source members are
    scanned. In these cases a warning message should be raised to
    alert the customer that this is the case.

    01.Symbolics are not recognized as integer literals.
    02.COBOL parser fails to recognized LENGTH without IN/OF.
    03.When analyzing a program with multiple nested programs using
       a custom COBOL code rule, reference resolution error
       messages may be issued.
    04.When an extension map does not correctly identify the
       language of specified PDS members, it is difficult for a
       customer to tell whether a scan succeeded with no results or
       if there were no PDS members scanned.
    

Problem conclusion

  • 01.Modified COBOL parser so that symbolics are recognized as
       integer literals.
    02.Modified COBOL parser to recognize LENGTH without IN/OF.
    03.Modified the code that populates the CAM API model to
       properly handle global symbol references in nested programs.
    04.Added a message to alert a customer when no PDS members have
       been scanned.
