IBM Power Ideas Portal

Shape the future of IBM!

We invite you to shape the future of IBM, including product roadmaps, by submitting ideas that matter to you the most. Here's how it works:

Post your ideas

Start by posting ideas and requests to this portal to enhance a Power product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted and upvote them if they matter to you,

  1. Post an idea

  2. Upvote ideas and add comments to ideas that matter most to you

  3. Get feedback from the IBM team to refine your idea

Help IBM prioritize your ideas and requests

The IBM team may need your help to refine the ideas so they may ask for more information or feedback. The Power teams will then decide if they can begin working on your idea. If they can start during the next development cycle, they will put the idea on the priority list. Each team at IBM works on a different schedule, where some ideas can be implemented right away, others may be placed on a different schedule.

Receive notification on the decision

Some ideas can be implemented at IBM, while others may not fit within the development plans for the product. In either case, the team will let you know as soon as possible. In some cases, we may be able to find alternatives for ideas which cannot be implemented in a reasonable time.

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.
