Error description

  • Rational Developer for i Systems (RDi)  v9
    When you use Create Web Service wizard for a COBOL program a
    compiler error will be given in the case where the COBOL
    program has a DISPLAY-OF that references a variable that is
    GRAPHIC.
    The following error pops up in a dialog,  IJTP0028, "The
    program definition could not be obtained from the COBOL source
    code."  If you click on details you will that the possible
    causes are:
    1.  The required libraries have not been added to the library
    list.
    2.  There are compilation errors in the COBOL source code.
    
    In the listing, you will find these errors for the COBOL
    program:
    " "LNC2767 Function argument 'FIELD1' did not have the
    correct type for function 'FUNCTION DISPLAY-OF',
         for the statement,
    "MOVE function display-of(FIELD1) TO   FIELD2."
    
    However, if either a CRTBNDCBL or CRBCLBMOD is used with the
    same program and with the same compilers options in CVTOPT and
    OPTIONS there is no error given.
    

Local fix

  • Comment out the DISPLAY-OF statement before invoking the Web
    Service wizard.  After creating the necessary web service files
    then uncomment the statement and compile the program.

    ****************************************************************
    RDi Create Web Service wizard for a COBOL program containing the
    COPY DDS statement for a file containing national data fields (G
    fields with CCSID 13488 or 1200) can fail the compile giving
    error IJTP0028 when the national field is used in a FUNCTION
    DISPLAY-OF statement.  The compile listing shows the national
    field as a PIC G graphic data items in the listing and gives
    error LNC2767 in the compiler listing.  However CRTBNDCBL and
    CRTCBLMOD are able to successfully compile the program.
    

Problem conclusion

  • This problem is fixed in the RDi 9.1.1 update.
    When national DDS fields (G fields with CCSID 13488 or 1200) are
    found during COPY DDS, the COBOL PV will handle these as PIC N
    national data items when the correct compiler options are
    specified.
