Question & Answer


Question

What are the known issues, limitations and work-arounds for using IBM z/OS Debugger profiles Eclipse user interface?

Answer

The following table lists the issues, limitations and available workarounds for IBM z/OS Debugger profiles Eclipse user interface:

Area Type Description Work-Around
Debug Profile Editor Issue When creating a new profile, no errors appear in the status area, and the user is unable to save.
z/OS Debugger Profiles view Issue When using the view, users receive a generic message, CRRDG9116E, with 'http500 Connection refused' as the message from the Debug Profile Service.
z/OS Debugger 14.2.3 eclipse client provides an improved message, but the user must still address the root cause to eliminate it.
This issue is caused when the Debug Profile Service and/or the CICS region is not correctly configured. Ensure the following:
  • Verify that the CICS region is running.
  • Verify that the ports configured in /etc/debug/dtcn.ports are accurate.
  • Verify that the DTCN API TCPIPSERVICE is configured as described in Defining the CICS TCPIPSERVICE resource.
z/OS Debugger Profile view Issue
When the view is automatically refreshed, the following error may appear in the workspace log:
!ENTRY org.eclipse.jface 2 0 2020-03-02 11:45:44.678
!MESSAGE Ignored reentrant call while viewer is busy. This is only logged once per viewer instance, but similar calls will still be ignored.

...

Addressed in z/OS Debugger 14.2.3 eclipse client.
