Error description

  • When debugging with Rational Developer for i (RDI) 9.5 the
    debugger will show the program source. When two source members
    have the same base name then then an incorrect source member may
    be found for display by the client.
    
    For example debugging where source member NAME.0 is correct but
    source member NAME exists in the same file the source member
    NAME will be found incorrectly.
    

Local fix

  • Use a separate source file for source member NAME.0

    * In RDI 9.5.0.2, debugger may find incorrect source when two  *

    ****************************************************************
    When two source members have the same base name (e.g. one source
    member called NAME and the other source member called NAME.0),
    the debugger may locate the source for NAME when it is currently
    debugging the program for NAME.0.
