APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • When debugging a server-client application, the 'pause' button
    may be used to stop the application at a point where it is
    expecting to receive a client input. However, if a timeout or a
    connection error occurs during the pause, the debugger fails to
    continue debugging the application when the 'resume' button is
    clicked. Instead, the debugger terminates the application.
    

Local fix

  • N/A
    

Problem summary

  • USERS AFFECTED:
    Users who are debugging a server-client application that uses
    the pause and resume functionality when waiting for an external
    input may be affected by this issue.
    
    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    When the pause/resume buttons are clicked, the debugger engine
    was not checking for any EFAULT errors that could have occured
    on the connection.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The debugger engine has been fixed to handle the EFAULT
    scenario; and no longer terminates the application being
    debugged.
    

Temporary fix
