Debug SEP Communication Error

I was wondering if anyone else is having this program with RDi 9.0.1.  We 
are on version 7.1 of the Operating System.  The verify connection option 
came back saying everything was successful.  I also have the Update 
production files checkbox checked as well.

I was using SEP to debug a program on our production partition.  After 
stepping through the program and using the monitor tab to review the 
important variables, I removed the program from the Service Entry Points 
tab.  I select the little eraser and the entry disappeared from the list.

I modified the program, recompiled it and tried to add it back to the 
service entry point display.  When I did this RDi gave a message saying 
that I was trying to reference an object that no longer existed.  I then 
tried to end the debug server, and I then get a message saying that 
Communication required by Service Entry Point function dropped.  Service 
Entry Point(s) set by user xxxxxxxxxx at server xxxxxxxxx will be removed. 
 The only response is OKAY.

My question is why would the debug server still be thinking that the 
program is still being used in Service Entry Points after I removed it 
from the list?
Is this a known issue with RDi 9.0.1?

Once I restarted the DEBUG sever, I was able to add the program back to 
Service Entry Points. 

Thanks,

Re: Implied subfield definition not in Outline

I have to agree with Jon, This is in no way an RFE issue. RFE=Request for 
Enhancement. This is just a plain bug. Don't frustrate your users by 
making us vote for a bug fix. 

<soap box>

I think someone at the management level at IBM needs to rethink the way 
bugs and enhancements are thought about and handled. I've had an RFE 
rejected because, quote:

"This issue would be more easily resolved by opening a Problem Management 
Record (PMR), since it appears to be a defect or change in behavior in the 
product from previous releases."

So I open the PMR, and it's now been stuck for almost three months while 
it's evaluated as to whether it's really a defect, change in behavior, or 
whatever.  If that's "more easily resolved", then I would hate to see what 
the delay for an RFE would be.

My experience with the development team from Toronto (and from Rochester, 
too) is they are great people who really want to make and support the best 
product. They do an admirable job of just that. But management or 
policies/procedures are getting in the way.

</soap box>

Edmund,
I hope you're not getting so little sleep trying to get the next 
release/service pack/fix pack/... out the door. We really appreciate 
everything you and the rest of the team do.

I never thought of an RFE...  I'm still plumping for refactoring tools:
that's easily the top of my wish list!  :-)  The make thing is just
noodling around at this point.  Although it is pretty sweet to be able
to invoke the same makefile from the PC or the IBM i side.

Far and away, the vast majority of my work involves changing mainline
code - programs that consume service programs.  CRTBNDRPG handles that,
so for the vast mojority of my day, Ctrl-Shift-C is all I need to
compile a program.

But what about the more complicated situations like when I'm editing a
service program's subprocedure, testing it (with RPGUnit) and jumping
back and forth between CRTBNDRPG and CRTRPGMOD?

I think I've discovered something about the way I work.  I do a lot by
right clicking an entry in RSE.  That's easy for me because I pretty
much always create a new connection with appropriately narrow filters
for the project I'm working on.  I hardly ever File > Open a member
outside a connection, because the connection supplies the underlying
base IBM i environment; most importantly, the library list.

Lately, I've been experimenting with GNU make.  5799-PTL

provides a GMAKE command that will run from the CL command line.  Here's

Implied subfield definition not in Outline

As I read the wonder documentation from IBM Boulder, the maximum number of elements in an array is limited to
32,767.  Here's the link:
http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/iadthelp/v6r0/index.jsp?topic=/com.ibm.etools.iseries.langref.doc/c0925086843.htm
You have a few more than that in the "DATA" sub-field; maybe that's the reason for the "Unknown" description.

Implied subfield definition not in Outline

Hey List,

So I entered a PMR to report an issue where an implied subfield definition was appearing as Unknown(0) in the outline.
Example:
     D ds_Cust         DS                  Qualified Inz
     D  Data                               Dim( 999999 ) Ascend
     D   Cust#                        6p 0 Overlay( Data: *next ) Inz
     D   Cycle                        1a   Overlay( Data: *next ) Inz
     D   DropCDRs                      n   Overlay( Data: *next ) Inz
     D   TLRNRating                    n   Overlay( Data: *next ) Inz

The outline gives the definition for Data as Unknown(0).  But the compiler understands it.

I reported this because I would think that seeing Uknown(0) in your product would be bad.  How often would I
reference/use the definition of this kind of subfield?  Rarely.

Well, I was told that this would require a RFE.  I disagree because the software isn't supporting existing
RPG coding techniques, but at this point I guess I just don't care that much about it.   So, I figured I'd write
the list to see if anyone would benefit from me arguing the point with IBM (or sighing and entering an RFE). 
Otherwise I'll just let it drop.

Thanks,

RDi 9.0.1 Two Stroke for shortcut Menu key

Hi,

Has anyone reported the Dreaded "Two Stroke" for using the Shortcut menu?

Continually, I have to press the shortcut key twice to get functions. (Cntrl+f10 or Right-click with mouse)...

I never remember this happening on previous reversion of Rational...

If no one has reported this to IBM, I can open on a PMR, if no one has reported this already. I hope it is fixed in
the next release.

I guess I could open up a PMR to verify that IBM knows about this. To the Newbies, that makes the software look
like crap... <sorry>

Convert H, F, D specs to freeform for free

All,

I thought someone had a free RDP plugin that converted H, F, and D specs to
freeform, but can't seem to find any.  RDP will convert C specs to
freeform, but not the other specs.

Arcad and Linoma have pay versions, but I'm just looking for one that will
do one program at a time while I have it open in RDP.

Thanks.
