Code Coverage

Hi guys,

I have just tried to use the code coverage for the first time on a quite complicated data conversion program
written in SQL ILE COBOL and I am very perplexed with the results I got back. This may just be my lack of
knowledge of code coverage but the first question is should code coverage work on SQL ILE COBOL programs or
has COBOL be left behind again?

Re: iSphere for WDSCi 7.0 / RDi 8.0+

Hi Frank,

Does the plug-in get installed in my workspace then because I am just running 2 instances of RDi on the same PC
using two different workspaces?

Best regards,
Mark

Mark,

you have installed in your second instance iSphere with version 2.0.0 or lower. When upgrading from
iSphere 2.0.0 or lower to iSphere 2.1.0 or higher you have to uninstall manually the old iSphere version.
Take a look at the iSphere documentation for the uninstall process.

Plug-in Installation

I have recently tried installing a few plug-ins in RDi 9.1, and while 
they show up under "Installed Software", I never see any indication that 
they were actually installed (the features they add are missing).  I 
have tried doing a -clean and that did not fix the issue.

I was able to install a couple of plugins through local update sites and 
those are working fine.  The plugins that failed were installed through 
remote update sites.

I've used Eclipse for 12 years or more and I have never seen anything 
like this.  Anybody out there have any idea what could be causing this? 
  I have been able to install third-party plug-ins without issue in the 
past.

iSphere for WDSCi 7.0 / RDi 8.0+

Hi Folks,

It is time to update your iSphere plug-in to version 2.2.0.

Here is the list of features we added to the new version:

* Fix invalid length property when adding a message description
  with a VARY field.
* Fixed iSphere Compare Editor to ignore trailing spaces.
* Added port number for FTP transfer to preferences page.
* Enabled source member compare editor to work on two
  selected members.
* Added “iSphere Message File Search Page” (CTRL+H)
* Added “iSphere Source File Search Page” (CTRL+H)
* Enhanced “iSphere Message File Search” from the RSE tree to
  allow logical AND/OR combinations of multiple search strings.
* Enhanced “iSphere Source File Search” from the RSE tree to
  allow logical AND/OR combinations of multiple search strings.
* Added option to change attributes "Severity" and "Ccsid" of
  a message description.
* Added RSE object decorator showing the object descriptions in
  the RSE tree.

A lot of the new features have been realized because of your feedback.
Feedback is important for us. If you think something is bad, please let us
know about it. If you think something is good, we love to hear that, too.
If you have any ideas for new features, please don`t hesitate to send us a
feature request.

Getting my RDi license (the saga continues...)

I've been trying to get RDi 9.1 since June.  We never got a renewal for our maintenance and were expired.  Our BP
had been working on getting that straightened out.  In the meantime, I had to rebuild my PC, and I installed
the trial of 9.1 (assuming the license would come thru in time).  My Passport Advantage Proof of
Entitlement came thru last week.  The accompanying instructions told me to download Installation
Manager in order to install RDi.  I already had it installed, but I decided to humor them.  The new download
wouldn't install since I already have Installation Manager installed.  I checked "Connect to Passport
Advantage" in Installation Manager and tried all of the options (Install, Update, Modify and Manage
Licenses), but none of them actually did anything.

I tried finding the license via ESS per Edmund's blog post
(https://www.ibm.com/developerworks/community/blogs/49773f8f-a20d-4816-86f2-44a2d862dbc1/entry/how_to_get_activation_kit_if_you_did_not_order_the_product_from_passport?lang=en),
but it only shows me "RPG and COBOL Developer Tools for i V8".  Does that mean that we don't actually have RDi
9.1 yet?  Do I need to actually order it?

You said it better than I did.

There are programmers who, having learnt one thing, stop there; happy
enough.  But there are others who are willing to learn other things but
are too busy to explore on their own.  A sampling of 'other things' is
sometimes enough to get that exploration going.

Perhaps you could use the menu instead of cycling through the views.
Send !wvrr{Enter}

Alt-w - Open the Window menu item
v - select the View option
r - select Remote System Details
r - select Remote Systems
Enter - end the script with the focus in the RSE view.  You'd be running
Alt-l, j instead I think.

I post this for several reasons.  One of course is to help you automate
scut work.  One though, is to show that there's a... a mindset that
comes into play when scripting.  I myself loved the ability to script
Code/400 using Rexx.  But very few people seem to share my attraction
and I think it's a more a matter of unfamiliarity than anything else.
Those of us who haven't done much scripting can't readily see the value.
 So I'm trying to show some value :-)

New RFE - Quicker Auto-expand of Subprocedures

It's great that the outline auto-expands the Subprocedures list.  Personally, I'd like it to auto-expand
immediately.  Figured I'd put a RFE out there to see if anyone feels the same.

It took me about 10 minutes to download AHK, install it and plink out
that test script.

Re: A added an RFE for CL

This is why the RFE specifically addresses CL--because no text is lost 
when 'Automatic formatting' is enabled.

Beeping when editing RPG is irrelevant to the RFE. (I understand the need 
for the alarm--source will be lost on upload. Although in theory RDi could 
reformat everything flowing to multiple lines when typing beyond 80 
characters (or 100 for free-form RPG). In fact, I think the RDi 
development team is looking to do this for SQL. Personally, I would rather 
see them put the development resources to work on other items than "live" 
reformatting of RPG or COBOL.)

I just think it's pointless to keep beeping at me with every keystroke 
when the source will be reformatted and nothing will be lost. The beeps 
even happen when pressing the delete key. (It's like saying, "Warning! 
You're fixing the code!)

Again, the RFE only addresses CL and is qualified to CL with 'Automatic 
reformatting on. In RPG, the editor won't beep until you exceed column 
100. If you're not editing free-form code, beeping past column 80 would 
make sense.,

Works for me on 9.1 but I'm connecting via a mapped Windows drive.  In
my case, IFS root is mapped to X:

New Connection > Local...

Local Files > Drives, right click, New filter

Folder x:\www
Subset by file name *

This gives me a filter with all files in the /www hierarchy.  If I only
want the .conf files in that hierarchy, I can set the 'Subset by file
name' to *.conf
