  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • After the customer switched to using *CRASTART method, there
    were several Endevor API errors issued
    while retrieving number of dependencies from element component
    list. This causes dependency list
    processing to fail leading to return code 4038.
    
    In the CARMALOG output, several API errors can be observed:
    
    CRANDVRA touched DD CARMALOG on 30 Oct 2017 at 15:01:31.926164
    (startup)
    CARMA v2.0 is initializing at Mon Oct 30 15:01:34 2017

    01.When invoking the search request, if the storage area used
       for the response is not initialized, this may cause errors
       when processing the request. The subsequent requests may
       fail as a result.
    02.This update matches the fix for IBM Debug Tool APAR PI81873.
    03.When debugging COBOL V4, the listing listing reader was not
       processing some variables correctly.
    

Problem conclusion

  • 01.The IBM IDz Endevor integration has been changed to
       initialize the response area prior to each request.
    02.This update matches the fix for IBM Debug Tool APAR PI81873.
    03.The Integrated Debugger engine was updated to correctly
       process variables in the COBOL V4 listing, so that variables
       are displayed.
