Hi Edmund,

Thank you for forwarding my enhancement request to the debugger developer. It should not be that hard to do the necessary changes.

I assume that the next iSphere version will be another major step forward. Not only because of the debugger menu extensions but also because of the "Job Trace Explorer" that currently is under development.

I assume that I can release a next beta version, soon.

Regards,

Thomas.

Your request to extend the DebuggerProcess.getAttribute() API sounds
reasonable.  I will forward it to the debugger developer.  In the meantime
I suggest using your work arounds, as this will not be delivered in the
near future.

Your enhancements sound great Thomas.  Thanks for all the value you are
providing to the community.

Subject: [EXTERNAL] Re: [WDSCI-L] How to get connection name from
DebuggeeProcess?
Date: Wed, Oct 7, 2020 4:46 AM
 
Hi Edmund,

As I mentioned before extending the debugger popup menu works, now. So
far I added:

* Copy Qualified Name

Copies the qualified job name to the clipboard.

* Job Log Explorer

Starts the job log explorer for the job that stopped at the breapoint

* Work With Spooled Files

Opens the "Work With Spooled Files" view for the job that stopped at the
breapoint

These options are really helpful. But there are a few concerns that I
hassle with:

a) Package '' com.ibm.debug.pdt.internal.*" is not exported and
accessing the classes is discouraged.

b) There is no reliable method for retrieving the job name. The only
options are calling either "DebuggeeProcess.getAttribute(null)" or
"DebuggeeProcess.getLabel()". Both methods are private due to the
restricted package access and I have to use a regular expression for
retrieving the job name from the string returned.

c) The connection name is completely missing. All I have is the DNS name
(or IP address) and the debugger port. Hence the only option I have to
find the connection is spinning through all available connections
looking for an active connection with a matching IP address.

It was over the top if you clould add the missing pieces to the
attribute list of DebuggeProcess (actually IProcess) to ensure reliable
information. That would also solve the "discouraged access" problem,
because getAttribute(key) is part of the interface IProcess:

1) CONNECTION_NAME

2) QUALIFIED_JOB_NAME

Or instead of 2) three dedicated attributes:

2a) JOB_NAME
2b) JOB_USER
2c) JOB_NUMBER

This is nothing more than a question and of course I know that IBM
cannot make money with that. I also know that it cannot be changed right
now. But if it is not too hard for you, I may have a chance to refactor
my classes to make them reliable and stable.

Regards,

Thomas

Hi Edmund,

Thank you very much for your help and thank you very much to the debug
developer. The information you provided did indeed help a lot to create
the menu item action.

Now I can successfully open the iSphere "Job Log Explorer" view from the
"Job" node of the call stack, when the debugger stops at a SEP.

I am just a little converned about that package
"com.ibm.debug.pdt.internal.*" is not exported. So hopefully its classes
will not be changed for the next years.

I also hope that I can rely on the following statements for retrieving
the qualified job name:

     private static final String PATTERN =
"\\S*\\s+((\\d{6})/(.{1,10})/(.{1,10}))\\s+.*";

     protected String getQualifiedJobName(IProcess process) {

         Pattern pattern = Pattern.compile(PATTERN);
         Matcher matcher = pattern.matcher(process.getAttribute(null));
         if (matcher.find()) {
             return matcher.group(1);
         }

         return null;
     }

Now I am going to add an action for opening the iSphere "Work With
Spooled Files" view to show the spooled files of the job.

Both items are on my wish list for a long time.

Best Regards,

Thomas.
