Between them, these three products provided much needed third-party system software support for IBM 's "flagship" teleprocessing product CICS , which survived for more than 20 years as a strategic product without any memory protection of its own. This was despite the fact that much of the world's banking and other commerce relied heavily on CICS for secure transaction processing between and early s. The difficulty in deciding which application program caused the problem was often insurmountable and frequently the system would be restarted without spending many hours investigated very large and initially unformatted " core dump "s requiring expert system programming support and knowledge. Additionally, the product and its competitors provided an integrated testing environment which was not provided by IBM for early versions of CICS and which was only partially satisfied with their later embedded testing tool — " Execution Diagnostic Facility " EDF , which only helped newer "Command level" programmers and provided no protection.

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. Testing and debugging is one of the most time consuming and important phases of application development.
It lets you resolve multiple errors interactively as they occur, without having to recompile or end the test session. Using the Eclipse UI.
