Xpediter mainframe tutorial to debug online CICS programs

Refer my earlier stack on online expediter how we can set up a program for online xpediter.

Here again I am giving how program set up needed before start testing. Every time before you take up for testing you need to make sure, deleting all previous setting, refresh it if any one of your developer using your program.

I am giving a series of commands you can use readily.


XPND: Just type on CICS terminal “XPND”. It terminates your CICS session. So that it refreshes your settings.

NEWC  Program-name : This command takes fresh copy of your program. Before start your testing. This approach is good.

LOCATE * (PF6):   This command helps to take to source listing screen, from any of the CICS screen.
