    ***************************************************************
    Rational Developer for System z (RDz) 9.0: Invoking HATS RCP
    application from an editor for a remote file does not run work
    
    
    APAR Error Description (unlimited lines of 64 chars):
    ***************************************************************
    Rational Developer for System z - RDz - v9.0: the HATS RCP
    application does not run properly when invoked from an open
    editor session for a remote file.
    
    Recreation steps:
    - create a simple HATS macro
    - exported the HATS plug-in,
    - create a new action using the Menu Manager preferences in RDz
    - from the RSE view, select a member, the action works fine
    - open a COBOL program, or a JCL file, right click and select
    the new action: nothing happens. No error logged.

    Local fix:

Local fix

Problem summary

  • The HATS integration code was not properly obtaining the
    hostname, userid or password for the remote object so that it
    could be used by the HATS RCP application to connect to the
    proper host.
    There is no local workaround.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The HATS integration code was modified to recognize this
    scenario and obtain the appropriate connection information from
    the selected object (the remote file being edited).
    
    The problem listed in this APAR has been resolved with
    IBM Rational Developer for System z V9.0.1 Refresh Pack which
    is available from the Recommended Fixes support download page:
    http://www-1.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?rs=2294&uid=swg27006335
