    ***************************************************************
    Rational Developer for System z (RDz) A right-clcik on a shared
    project with CARMA will give a NullPointerException.
    
    APAR Error Description (unlimited lines of 64 chars):
    ***************************************************************
    Rational Developer for System z - RDz - v8.5.1
    
    A right-click on a CARMA project or sub-project, no matter if
    is empty or not, will bring up an error message window due to
    a null pointer exception.
    
    Re-creation steps:
    . create a z/OS project
    . create a MVS sub-project, It doesn't matter if the z/OS
    project
    is empty or not.
    . share the project: select CARMA
    
    A right click on the project will give the error message:
    
    'The selected resources could not be found. Would you like us
    to try to find them?'
    
    Clicking on the 'Yes' button will leave the message box open.
    
    ***************************************************************
    Local fix:
    A - to create a new CARMA z/OS Project, it is recommended to do
    it from the CARMA Repositories view with 'Extract into remote
    project'
    
    B - To be able to delete the projects having the problem:
    
    1- shutdown RDz
    2- make a backup of your workspace (copy c:\yourworkspace to
    c:\yourworspace.old)
    3- get to directory
    c:\yourworkspace\.metadata\.plugins\org.eclipse.core.resources\.
    projects
    4- delete the folder wdz_proj_?your z/OS project with pb?
    (so for example if ZOSProjectA has the problem then delete
    folder
    :\yourworkspace\.metadata\.plugins\org.eclipse.core.resources\
    .projects\wdz_proj_ZOSProjectA)
    5- restart RDz
    6- Your project will still appear on the Enterprise explorer but
    you should now be able to right-click on it and delete it.
