Error description

  • Rational Developer for system z Remote syntax check error
    message IBM2805I that includes aphostrophe is not displayed
    
    When executing remote syntax check for source.pli, error message
    for IBM2805I that includes apostrophe is not displayed on remote
    error list view.
    
    The customer uses codepage half-width kana, and set host code
    page in MVS Files properties to IBM-1390 for PL/I source code.
    
    Below error message is not displayed. (The error message
    includes  apostrophe.)
    IBM2805I I 6.0 FOR ASSIGNMENT TO MY_VAR_P, CONVERSION FROM
    CHARACTER TO PIC'(1)9' WILL BE DONE BY  LIBRARY CALL.
    
    The apostrophe is written as ?apos in error feedback XML file.
    So this happens because the apostrophe is garbled during
    encoding conversion.
    
    If the customer sets File System Mapping to IBM-1399 then the
    error message is displayed properly but the customer can't use
    IBM-1399 since they use IBM-1390 for the source code files.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • The entity expression for apostrophe was lower alphabet in the
    host, but the entity was modified to invalid non-alphabet
    characters in downloaded xml since the host codepage in
    downloading mapped non-alphabet characters for the code points
    for lower alphabets in IBM-037.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The client was fixed to convert invalid XML entity expression of
    downloading codepage to lower alphabets of IBM-037 before
    processing the result XML.
    
    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:
