Problem conclusion

  • The Remote IMS Application with Isolation launch configuration
    was fixed to properly handle connection errors, and refresh the
    launch configuration dialog so that they display correctly.
    
    This problem is fixed in v14.1.3 of IBM Developer for z Systems
    Enterprise Edition.
