OVERVIEW

TraceMaster interactive tracing software significantly reduces the time and accompanying costs of mainframe application development by quickly identifying the causes of program errors hidden within thousands of lines of code.

TraceMaster lets you analyze large volumes of code much faster, compared with traditional debugging methods. Developers can step through code with ease, drilling down into program logic to find and fix program errors and accelerate the deployment of your business-critical applications.

KEY FEATURES

  • Intuitive control
    A highly intuitive interface allows testers to manipulate large volumes of code easily, providing clear insight into logic errors and program abends
  • Test session replay
    Errors can be targeted by stepping back and forth throughout a program line by line, with the option to drop into lower level programs, to determine the root cause
  • Unlimited breakpoints
    Users may set any number of conditional and unconditional breakpoints to step through a complete program or a section of code at their desired pace, until they are sure it is running as expected
  • Reusable breakpoints
    Breakpoints can be set at lines or sections of code and then restored at subsequent tracing sessions to let testers pick up easily where they left off
  • Data control
    Program variables can be displayed, monitored and modified throughout the tracing session, even when switching between programs and subprograms
  • CICS-specific filtering
    CICS programs and subprograms can be traced easily using variables such as the transaction name or program name
  • Path coverage analysis
    This powerful feature can be used to examine execution paths and identify coding inefficiencies in non-CICS programs. CICS path coverage analysis can be performed using TraceMaster CodeTrack
  • Test results auditing
    A full auditing capability lets program developers and managers trace back through the results and steps taken during a test session, to monitor compliance with quality assurance procedures
  • Web, Eclipse and 3270 access
    A range of complementary interfaces provide a variety of options to suit all users

RESOURCES

TraceMaster can be deployed in combination with the following products as an integral part of application lifecycle management:
