APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • When integrating Cadence Virtuoso and IBM Rational ClearCase, if
    a Workarea manager (WAM) operation supporting comments is
    performed and provided with a comment containing the pattern
    '_.,' (an underscore followed by a single character and further
    followed by a comma), subsequent operations will report a syntax
    error in the Cadence WorkArea Manager (WAM).
    
    The Workarea Manager state will not be updated to reflect the
    ClearCase status although the ClearCase operation succeeded.
    

Local fix

  • There is no current workaround to the issue short of monitoring
    operation comments.
