Error description

  • Rational Developer for System z 8.5.1 - RDz - When Refactor
    (remove noise words) performed on COBOL/PLI program in System z
    LPEX editor, client hangs.
    
    RDz user opens COBOL/PL1 program in the System z LPEX editor.
    Once program is open, they right-click in editor pane and select
    Refactor -? Remove Noise Words from the context menu.  User
    selects noise words to be removed and clicks ?OK?.  User is
    presented with a panel that contains 'Problems found', as well
    as, the number of 'Noise word' instances found.  When user
    clicks ?Continue? button, client hangs (Remove Noise Words
    dialog panel never goes away). User needs to cancel RDz client
    using task manager.
    
    Local Fix:
    (1) Open program in COBOL/PLI editor when doing the refactor
    function.
    
    (2) If system z LPEX editor is preferred, make sure the
    following LPEX Editor Preprocessor Integration preference is NOT
    selected:
    
    Window ? Preferences ? LPEX Editor ? System z LPEX Editor ?
    COBOL Parser or PL/I Parser ? Preprocessor
    Integration ? Preprocessor Statements: 'Run preprocessors when
    opening a file that has not been scanned before'
