APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • The real-time syntax check in the System z LPEX , COBOL and PL/I
    Editors does not accept the NOHANDLE  option placed before the
    EXEC CICS command is fully named in some multiple-word EXEC CICS
    commands.  For example, WRITE NOHANDLE FILE... (rather than
    WRITE FILE.... NOHANDLE) would be flagged with an error
    annotation in the editor even though the compiler accepts it
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • The EXEC CICS real-time syntax check parser did not accept
    NOHANDLE or other command options before a multiple-word CICS
    command (like WRITE FILE) was fully specified, but the compiler
    accepts this form.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The EXEC CICS real-time syntax check parser has been changed to
    be more flexible regarding the order of command options in many
    multiple-word CICS commands (like WRITE FILE, ADD SUBEVENT,
    INVOKE SERVICE, RUN ACTIVITY, and others).
    
    The problem listed in this APAR has been resolved with
    IBM Rational Developer for System z V8.0.3.4 Fix Pack which
    is available from the Recommended Fixes support download page:
