XPEDITER/CICS is a debugging tool that lets you analyze, test and debug CICS applications running in a CICS environment. You will learn how to view and alter test profiles, interrupt a running program and examine storage, step through a program line-by-line, animate program execution, restart program execution at a different instruction, trace logic flow, bypass unnecessary program code, monitor, display and modify program variable contents, and more.This course uses a variety of CICS COBOL programs to illustrate the debugging of various abends and logic errors, including CICS programs with START, LINK, XCTL, and triggered CICS programs. This course focuses on debugging and analyzing COBOL/CICS applications. It is written for Xpediter/CICS Release 8.2. Earlier releases are also available.Lecture and extensive hands-on workshops reinforce the lectures and demonstrations.
Students need to be able to use TSO and JCL and write COBOL/CICS applications.
