Error description

  • IBM Developer for z Systems - IDz - v14.1.10
    Failed to generate JCL with "For Compile Link Code Coverage"
    when the associated property group has more than one sources
    lookup.
    
    Steps to reproduce:
    - Set more than one source lookup in Runtime Options of property
    group.
    - On a cobol source which is associated with the created
    property group, select Generate JCL For Compile Link Code
    Coverage.
    

Local fix

  • Do not set set source lookup on Runtime Options / Debug
    Set source lookup by
    1. Go to Runtime Options / Procedures and Steps
    2. Expand section Steps options
    3. Select ELAXFGO - RUN
    4. On the text of Additional JCL append the following EQADEBUG
    DD statement:
    //EQADEBUG DD DISP=SHR,DSN=TEST.SOURCE
      DD DISP=SHR,DSN=TEST.SYSDEBUG
