PM55955: CARMA Endevor comparison of file history doesn't show COBOL compare but Text compare
A fix is available
Closed as program error.
APAR Error Description: Abstract: In IBM Rational Developer for System z (RDz) version 126.96.36.199, attempts to compare to version of a member in CARMA Endevor result in a text comparison instead of COBOL. Problem: 1) From the CARMA repository view, user selects a COBOL program: in the Environment/SubSystem, extension correctly appears as .CBL 2) User right-clicks on a member and select Show History: the Show History view does not show any extension for the member 3) When doing a compare between versions, the compare editor doesn't highlight COBOL syntax like if it was text file. Local fix: A workaround is to open the Properties for each of the versions you want to compare and select 'cbl' from the drop down list for the Local file extension. After choosing 'cbl' from the list and clicking OK, the file's icon in the CARMA Version History view should change from the one of a text file to the one of a COBOL file and the extension should be shown. Performing a 'Compare with ? Each Other' for the two versions should then open a COBOL compare instead of a text compare.
Extensions were not properly being set in the CARMA History View
Fixed the problem with the extension not appearing even when set in the history view. The problem listed in this APAR has been resolved with IBM Rational Developer for System z V188.8.131.52 Fix Pack which is available from the Recommended Fixes support download page: http://www-1.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?rs=2294&uid=swg27006335
