Hi Matt,
Thanks for catching this, I have spoken to the developer and this will be
fixed for next release.
I assume that we should always use UPDPROD(*YES) rather than exposing this
as an option.
Unfortunately there is no work around available in the RDi 9.1

I too would like to run code coverage of a program running in
production. If I were writing the requirement for this, I'd ask for a
pop-up window specifically asking whether to update production data or
not. I always want to have a big scary notice that I'm about to update
production data right in front of my face.

I use a network tool called Wireshark somewhat frequently, and it has 2
modes of operation: Collection and Presentation. I'd love to see an IBM
i command that will instigate the collection of the necessary trace data
- that command could have UPDPROD() on it. Then the RDi GUI could be
used to analyse the statistics gathered by the batch process. Utopia,
right? :-)

For some reason Code Coverage uses STRDBG UPDPROD(*NO).

I know this because I get "Member XXXXXXXX cannot be opened while
UPDPROD(*NO)." then the coverage job ends.

I see no where I can set this debug option to UPDPROD(*YES). My debug
option under Preferences -> Run/Debug -> IBM i Debug has the option
"Update production files" set on.

We have overridden the system command default to be UPDPROD(*YES) and
its still at that value.

Did I miss an option in Code Coverage? Or does this require an RFE.

It makes this difficult to run Code Coverage without moving ALL
production level data objects to a test library. Sub programs that
are not in test are called attempting to open production data and

Thanks, Matt
