TraceMaster CodeTrack provides two valuable services that help you improve code quality, security and performance and is an effective tool for quality control when promoting z/OS applications to a production environment.
CICS code path analysis lets developers know with certainty exactly how often each program instruction is executed, and highlights any instructions that are not being executed due to programming errors or redundant code. This approach reveals the extent of testing carried out on new or enhanced CICS applications by verifying whether all code has run successfully.
Storage violation detection tracks the execution of instructions in CICS applications. When a monitored application is about to update an area of storage, TraceMaster CodeTrack checks that the targeted memory area is actually owned by the application. If an application attempts to update storage lying outside of its ownership, the problem is detected and can be prevented. Used in development or system testing environments, TraceMaster CodeTrack is the perfect tool to ensure that none of the code going into production will cause storage violations, which are amongst the most serious of application problems.
