Error description

  • ****************************************************************
    Error Description:
    ****************************************************************
    In Rational Developer for System z (RDz)the 'Open Program'
    option is not available for valid LINK and XCTL statements that
    are within CICS EXEC statements.
    
    When you right click on a program that is used in a Call
    statement
    in a COBOL program then the 'Open Program' option appears.
    But if you open a COBOL program with CICS exec invocations and
    right click on a program in an XCTL or LINK statement, then the
    'Open Program' option is not available from the menu.
    
    Recreation Steps:
    Created property group that pointed syslib to this same PDS
    Edited Mortgage.cbl and changed
    CALL 'TOTOPRG' USING  DFHCOMMAREA DFHEIBLK.   to
    CALL 'MORTSUBR' USING  DFHCOMMAREA DFHEIBLK.
    
    When I highlight MORTSUBR from this call and right click then
    I get the options to:
    Open 'MORTSUBR'
    View 'MORTSUBR'
    Browse 'MORTSUBR'
    
    However, if I highlight 'MORTSUBR' in the EXEC CICS Link
    statement
    below then none of these options are available.
    
       EXEC CICS LINK PROGRAM ('MORTSUBR') COMMAREA (COM-REGION)
       END-EXEC
    
    ****************************************************************
    Local Fix:
    ****************************************************************
    None available
    

Local fix

Problem conclusion

  • The routine for identifying program names within EXEC CICS
    statements has been updated to handle the changes in the COBOL
    Parser.
