"Bug fixes. OS compatibility. Tech support."

Hey David,

Thanks for the reply. So far I've never had any real bugs or need for tech
support, and I recently upgraded to win 8.1 without any trouble so not much
need for any of that. :)

I'm wondering if there are any features that might make the upgrade
appealing, particularly anything that would make it more productive than
using wdsc.

Thanks!

subject: [WDSCI-L] Error log doesn't sort


I am currently using RDi 9.0.1, but have found this on prior versions
also:

When I compile a program, sometimes, but not every time, the Error List
View shows my 30 level messages at the bottom of the panel. Since my panels
can contain multiple pages, it APPEARS (via a quick glance) that the
program compiles, but does not because there are severity 30 level errors
at the bottom of the panel, which you have to page down to see.

Normally, the View is displayed from Highest severity to Lowest, so
glancing at the View allows me to easily see if a program compiled.

However, every so often the View "loses" the sort criteria, and the
severity 30 messages are interspersed throughout the panel. I have tried
and tried to click on the Severity column to change the sort, but it does
not change. It appears that every other column changes somewhat when I
click on it, but not the Severity column.

Is there some setting that is not correct that is causing this? This
behavior can be inconsistent day to day.

Thank you,

Doug

OK, I verified I am at 1.7.2 so I need to update Installation Manager
but it is not finding the update. Anyone have a suggestion? Is there a
way to manually update Installation Manager?

It still sits there and never finds an update. I guess if no one has a
suggestion I'll leave it running all night and see if it ever finds
anything.

I think that the first step in every case of inconsistent behaviour is
to create a new workspace and try it again.

Generally, I let RDi filter out the informational messages so I don't
have to page through them.

Clicking on the Severity column sorts for me on 9.1 and my recollection
is that it always sorted, going back at least to 7.0.0.8.

Is there some setting that is not correct that is causing this? This
behavior can be inconsistent day to day.

Are you seeing a difference based on the source member type? RPGLE vs
RPG38 vs CLP?

If you want Installation Manager to update itself - go to File->

I ran Installation Manager last week and it came up with an update: IBM
SDK for Node.js 1.1.0.4 for Cordova tools ........ Is this really for RPG
and COBOL tools?

I thought I would open IBM Installation Manager to see if a patch has
been released for RDi 9.1. After asking for my secure storage password,
it just sits at "Check repository
https://www.ibm.com/software/repositorymanager/entitled...";. I never
get a message saying that no updates are available. It seems stuck.

Anyone experienced this and have a fix? If I enter a bad password for
the secure storage it tells me. It may have the wrong password stored
for my IBM account. Would it tell me if those stored credentials were
wrong?

Can you uninstall IBM Installation Manager without breaking RDi? I'd
hate to have to uninstall and re-install EVERYTHING just to fix
Installation Manager.

I've gone to the IM web page and installed the (at the time) latest
version of IM before starting to install RDi, but I can't say I've ever
uninstalled IM. I assume that you'd have to manually configure the
various repositories...

Well, sort of. RDi is based on Eclipse, and it comes packaged with
IBM's Java runtime. These fixes apply to that. There are a pair of
security fixes relating to this:


http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21679181&myns=swgrat&mynp=OCSSPSQF&mynp=OCSS4QVT&mynp=OCSSAE4W&mync=E

Patching the SDK fixes Java security vulnerabilities in RDi.

Bug fixes. OS compatibility. Tech support.

Heck, even vendor support. I developed the Implementer plug-in for RDi
and we've depreciated the WDSC 7 & RDi 7.1 versions of the plug-in.
Enhancements & new features will only be put in the plug-in version that's
supported in RDi 7.5 & higher.
