PRIVATE GROUP FEE:
$ Based upon a class size of six students.
Scheduling can be adjusted to employee work hours and incorporate client assignments.
SMALL CLASS SIZE:
There is a surcharge associated with training two or fewer students.
CONTENT AND OBJECTIVES:
Acquire familiarity with the terminology and features of Xpediter.
Examine and set the options in the setup parameters dialogs.
Step through the compile and basic debugging process.
Format a new DDIO and create a LOADLIB for the course exercises.
Compile the program using the Xpediter processor to generate the code in the DDIO.
Setup the Xpediter environment including DDIO, LOADLIB, LOG, and LIST dataset.
Execute the program in Xpediter and single step through the program.
Retest the program, review the log, and abend the program.
Interactive Debugging Techniques
Use the TSO Xpediter facilities.
Set different types of breakpoints including an unconditional and conditional breakpoint.
Change the flow of the program to continue from a different point.
Turn on the statement count to locate dead code and long loops.
Change the content of a field at a breakpoint.
Turn on the trace facility.
Changing Flow of Control
Set a breakpoint and resume execution at the beginning of the paragraph.
Retest the program and review the effects.
Single step thru a unit of logic.
Turn on the MONITOR and execute the program in reverse order.
Turn on and off the TRACE facility.
Review the trace LOG.
Save the trace LOG to a permanent dataset.
File Allocation Utility
Using the FAU, allocate all files in a program and run the program in foreground.
Advanced Debugging Techniques
Use interactive Xpediter to efficiently locate problems.
Set a breakpoint in order that whenever a field changes value the program pauses.
Simulate corrections during execution to minimize the number of compiles.
Run a batch testing session with a script.
Reusable Test Scripts
Code a script that turns on the COUNT facility each time the program is executed under Xpediter.
Code a post script that redirects the COUNT listing to a log after the program completes execution.
Code an on-demand script which sets breakpoints and initialize values in data items.
