Rational Developer for System z V184.108.40.206 The user selects a sub-project and additional members in the z/OS Projects view and chooses 'Delete...' in the context menu. The dialog box titled 'Confirm Project Remove' is misleading because the additional members will be deleted too. This happens even if the radio button 'Do not delete contents' is selected. NOTE: When deleting only members, there is a warning 'Are you sure you want to delete the selected resources from the remote system?'. But when both sub-projects and members are selected, no such warning is displayed, making it easy for the user to mistakenly delete members. Here is the scenario to recreate the problem: - create a z/OS Project zOS1 - create a MVS subproject MVS1 to the project zOS1 - add a COBOL program PGM1 to the subproject MVS1 - create another MVS subproject MVS2 to the project zOS1 - add another COBOL program PGM2 to the subproject MVS2 - press the key Ctrl and while the key is pressed, select the subproject MVS1 and the program PGM2 (from the subproject MVS2) - at that time, you have MVS1 and PGM2 that are both 'highlighted' - right-click on MVS1 and select 'Delete' - a popup window 'Confirm Project Remove' opens -? 'Do not delete contents' is selected -? Resource and Resource Type show MVS1 Subproject PGM2 Data Set Member If you click on Delete, MVS1 is removed from the z/OS Project zOS1 and PGM2 from the subproject MVS2. But PGM2 is also deleted from the MVS dataset. If instead of PGM2, you selected PGM1, then PGM1 is not deleted from the host. The problem only occurs when the members belong to another subproject than the one that is deleted.
The code which checks to see if the user requested to not delete project contents was ignoring selected resources that are not projects or subprojects.
Remote resources which are not projects or subprojects are now handled in the same way as projects and subprojects.
