    01.Excess tracing
    02.The parameter to be queried for connected users in the
       received response is wrong, thus having a Null Pointer
       Exception.
    03.When a user attempts opening an MVS file, if for some reason
       the hostcp mapping for the member is absent, then an abend
       0C4 may occur in FFSJNI.
    04.Utility Guide instructs the user to go to
       /usr/lpp/IBM/zexpl/bin to run IVP, which can result in
       failure. Host Configuration guide has the correct steps.
    05.Remote z/OS Search component of z/OS Explorer host failed to
       find a correct resume data set name in a search operation.
    06.In IBM Explorer for z/OS, intermittent slow response times
       may be encountered for MVS file actions such as read/write,
       and RSE 'DISPLAY' operator commands may timeout or contain
       incomplete information
    07.The z/OS Explorer daemon IVP fails with
       "gsk_secure_socket_init() failed: No SSL cipher
       specifications" when 4 character cipher ID's are used.
    08.z/OS Explorer TSO SEND exit FEKEESX0 (alias IKJEESX0) can go
       into an endless loop
    

Problem conclusion

  • 01.This reduces some of the trace messaesg
    02.Corrected the parameter to be queried for connected users to
       prevent Null Pointer Exception.
    03.In the unlikely event that a hostcp mapping is absent, it
       gets set to the default encoding for the host.
    04.The IVP panel is updated so it can run directly from the
       panel, avoiding the faulty instructions
    05.Remote z/OS Search component of z/OS Explorer host was fixed
       to continue a search operation with the correct resume data
       set
    06.Thread synchronization mechanisms have been revised
    07.Added support for 4 char SSL cipher ID to IVP.
    08.removed endless loop path
