Error description

  • Headline/Abstract
    ***************************************************************
    Rational Developer for System z (RDz) Content-assist response
    time increases when adding variables to a COBOL 'USING' list
    
    APAR Error Description
    ***************************************************************
    Rational Developer for System z - RDz - v7.6.3
    
    The response time when using the content assist to add variables
    to the USING list increases with the number of variables already
    on this USING list.
    
    For instance, use the following COBOL instruction:
    
    CALL 'ANYPGM' USING
         FIELD-1
         FIELD-2
    END-CALL.
    
    Then, use the content assist to add a new variable to the USING
    list (FIELD-3, FIELD-4,...). After each added variable to that
    list, the response time will increase, until an OutOfMemory
    error window pops-up.

    Local fix:

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    *
    USERS AFFECTED:
    RD/z users who use content assist in COBOL programs to add
    variables to a USING clause in a CALL statement.
    ****************************************************************
    *
    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    When adding variables to a USING clause in a CALL statement
    in a COBOL program, the time to provide proposals increases with
    each added variable until eventually an OutOfMemory error window
    is displayed.
    

Problem conclusion

  • ************************************************************
    PROBLEM RESOLUTION:
    When variables are added to a USING clause in a CALL
    statement, the content assist response time does not increase
    rapidly with each added variable, and an OutOfMemory error
    window is not displayed.
    
    The problem listed in this APAR has been resolved with
    IBM Rational Developer for System z V7.6.2.5 Fix Pack which
    is available from the Recommended Fixes support download page:
