An overview of features and basic use of the product.
Using Batch Tools
CA InterTest Batch is a comprehensive interactive tool for testing and debugging batch, DB2 stored procedures, and IMS/DC applications through a TSO/ISPF or CA Roscoe Interactive Environment (CA Roscoe) interface. Programmers use interactive, online facilities with the actual source listing for debugging, rather than dumps or reports, so you can resolve many errors in a single test session. The application intercepts all application abend conditions and identifies the source code statement that caused each error. Interactive debugging functions include the ability to set breakpoints, trace program execution, place data items in a keep window on the source listing screen, examine and modify the values of data items, and find a data string in working storage. A user-friendly, menu-driven allocation and JCL conversion facility simplifies the task of allocating program files for foreground execution or preparing JCL for batch execution.
Using CICS Tools
CA InterTest for CICS is an interactive tool for testing and debugging CICS COBOL, PL/I, and Assembler programs. Testing and debugging is one of the most time consuming and important phases of application development. The interactive testing facilities of CA InterTest for CICS dramatically improve testing efficiency and application quality. CA InterTest for CICS works online to trap all application errors known to CICS. It lets you resolve multiple errors interactively as they occur, without having to recompile or end the test session.
Using the Eclipse UI
This section describes how to use the Eclipse UI to debug CICS and batch applications. Use the Eclipse UI and this document to walk through the process and procedures that follow.
