Add PASE and Java details to Job Watcher call stack information

Job Watcher call stacks, whether via iDoctor or PDI, do not show the very important information regarding Java and PASE call stacks. Investigation into the Job Watcher database files looks like the required information is not collected by Job Watcher.

Java class name, Java source file name, PASE Procedure name, PASE load module name, PASE Load module path, PASE source file and path can be viewed via WRKJOB option 11, or the QSYS2.Stack_Info Service.

This information is very important for trouble shooting issues related to Java and Open Source.

Once the data is collected by Job Watcher itself, both iDoctor and PDI need to display this additional information in the call stack reports.


Use Case:

We are debugging an issue with open source and only see the procedure names in PASE. However, it is really important to know the PASE load module name, PASE Load module path, PASE source file and path - which we cannot see, even with queries to the Job Watcher files.
