Including PL/I compiler error lists in dependency build results views

To help determine dependency build problems, you can include PL/I compiler error lists in dependency build results views by setting up system definitions.

Before you begin

The z/OS® dependency build must be set up.

You must also enable the program compilation options for PL/I that support this extended feedback.

About this task

You can set up system definitions to show PL/I compilation error feedback in the build results for z/OS dependency builds. The error feedback supplements other build results.


The following steps describe how to modify the PL/I translator definitions under the Language Definitions node in the Team Artifacts view to support the compilation feedback results.

  1. From the Team Artifacts view, select your repository connection and log in.
  2. Expand your team project node.
  3. Expand the Enterprise Extensions > System Definitions > z/OS > Language Definitions nodes.
  4. Edit each of the PL/I translators in the translator editor and do the following:
    1. Append ,XINFO(XML) to the Default Options field.
    2. In the DD allocation section, if allocations for SYSXMLSD, WSEDSF1, WSEDSF2, WSEDSF3, and WSEDSF4 are not in the list, add them.
      SYSXMLSD and SYSADATA must point to data set definitions that represent temporary files on your system.
    3. If you need to create a data set definition to represent temporary files, follow these steps:
      1. Create a data set definition called Temporary File.
      2. In the Usage section, select Temporary data set used for build.
      3. Set the Data Set Characteristics to be appropriate for your system.
    4. Save the translator definition.
      Repeat step 4 for all other PL/I compilation translators.
  5. Run the z/OS dependency build, and then open the build result.
  6. Click the Compilation tab.
    All errors and warnings for the compiled PL/I files are shown in the Compile output listing.
