Error description

  • RDi v900
    If a user closes the RDi workspace without first saving files
    that have been changed the files may not be written to the
    iSeries at that time.
    When the workspace is opened the next time the files are
    then written to the host and it may overwrite files without
    being prompted to overwrite.  This may cause data to be lost
    in the files that have been changed by others.
    In the <workspace>\.metadata\.log file the following exception
    !ENTRY org.eclipse.rse.ui 4 0 2013-11-06 10:05:30.141

Local fix

  • Save any open files before closing the RDi workspace.
    

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED: RDi users who edit IBM i members             *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: When ending RDi, editor changes are     *
    *                      not uploaded in change conflict         *
    *                      scenarios.                              *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    Save conflict scenarios can arise when users start RDi with
    previously open edit members. Other users may have changed
    those same members on the host since.
    
    Upon ending RDi the user is prompted to save outstanding
    changes, and if a save conflict scenario exists, RDi tries to
    prompt the user, but the dialog isn't shown, and the member
    changes are not uploaded to the host.
    
    This APAR fix introduces a restriction:
    In a workbench closing state, the "Save As to a different
    member" option on the Save Conflict dialog will be disabled,
    so the user can not choose it.  (It will be shown greyed out.)
    

Problem conclusion

  • This problem is fixed in the RDi 9.0.1 update.
