You can track all active APARs for this component.

APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • When debugging RD/z 8.0.3 start a Host Emulator view. Click in
    the emulator view and press F8. Scrolling is correct but can't
    press F8 a second time. Focus from that emulator view is lost.
    

Local fix

  • Must click the emulator view again to regain focus before
    prerssing F7 or F8 a second time.
    

Problem summary

  • Eclipse debugger is greedy, and thus grabs keypresses even when
    an editor is not visible.  This was stealing focus from the
    HostConnect editor.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The F7 and F8 keys should now function properly in HostConnect,
    even when a debugger session is active.
    
    The problem listed in this APAR has been resolved with
    IBM Rational Developer for System z V8.0.3.2 Fix Pack which
    is available from the Recommended Fixes support download page:
