APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • If you have the setting: 'Use wizard for launching document
    generation' set to 'Yes' in Launcher,
    
    then you right click on a DSX and choose to publish, by
    selecting the option: 'Publish with Rational Publishing Engine',
    you will see that the report runs fine but at the end, the
    Launcher session is still active.
    
    So if you close the output popup and try to close the Launcher,
    it freezes.
    
    The Launcher closes fine if the setting above is set to 'No'.
    
    Is this by any chance a known issue. Currently I am able to
    reproduce this with RPE 1.2.

    RPE Launcher freezes when run and closed with the wizard
    enabled
    

Problem conclusion

  • Problem - When ever the user tries to generate a document
    specification using right click menu option "Publish with
    Rational Publishing Engine" (or using command line option
    -publish and a dsx file) and if "Use wizard for launching
    document generation" is enabled, closing the Launcher after
    generation freezes the application.
    Resolution - The problem was occurring because the cleanup
    logic of Launcher during closing of the application was
    resulting in an infinite loop when launcher is in Addin
    mode. The infinite loop is removed by closing all open
    document specification files without any prompts when the
    launcher is closed in Addin mode.
