When signed into LANSA on the iSeries; checked in changes made to an RDMLX function appear to have NOT taken effect

Date:30 January 2006
Product/Release:Visual LANSA V11.0 (RDMLX enabled partition only)
Abstract:When signed into LANSA on the iSeries; checked in changes made to an RDMLX function appear to have NOT taken effect until logging out of LANSA on the iSeries and then back in again
Submitted By:LANSA Technical Support

Specific example:

  • Start LANSA on the iSeries and execute an RDMLX function via a LANSA process
  • Without exiting LANSA on the iSeries, make a change to this RDMLX function from within the IDE (Windows)
  • Check that function into the iSeries (choose check in and compile for example)
  • Now go back to that same iSeries session from step one and execute the same RDMLX function. You will find that those changes appear to have NOT been applied
  • Next exit out of LANSA on the iSeries and then start LANSA again
  • All changes will now have been applied

Note:

  • This is only relevant for RDMLX function logic changes. It does not occur for RDML function logic changes
  • LANSA will be enhanced in a future version so that all RDMLX function logic changes will be immediately available on iSeries after checkin
  • There is no detrimental effect to your system or functions. However, it has been highlighted here as it could potentially cause some confusion.
