MACRO 4 EXTENDS TRACEMASTER WITH SUPPORT FOR CICS APPLICATIONS.



Macro 4 (MAO MAO - An early symbolic mathematics system.

[A. Rom, Celest Mech 1:309-319 (1969)].
.L), which earlier this year announced the availability of its new sophisticated interactive program testing product, TRACEMASTER, has announced that its new Version 3.1 adds support for CICS (Customer Information Control System) A TP monitor from IBM that was originally developed to provide transaction processing for IBM mainframes. It controls the interaction between applications and users and lets programmers develop screen displays without  applications in MVS (Multiple Virtual Storage) Introduced in 1974, the primary operating system used with IBM mainframes (the others are VM and DOS/VSE). MVS is a batch processing-oriented operating system that manages large amounts of memory and disk space.  and OS390 environments.

TRACEMASTER3.1 will be available to customers in December. Detailed program testing and debugging traditionally represent about 30 percent of the time required to deploy new applications. TRACEMASTER allows this time to be significantly reduced and, consequently, critical e-business applications and enhancements to legacy solutions can be deployed faster and with greater reliability than before.

The upgrade to TRACEMASTER, which is part of Macro 4's integrated suite of Application Availability tools for OS/390 developers that includes INSYNC and DUMPMASTER, now makes the transition to e-commerce practicable for companies using CICS. The suite will also support the new IBM zSeries IBM zSeries - IBM 370ESA  servers and z/OS operating system operating system (OS)

IBM's product lines include the S/390 mainframes (zSeries), AS/400 midrange business systems (iSeries), RS/6000 workstations and servers (pSeries), Intel-based servers (xSeries) .

According to Bill Janulin, Product Support Manager at Macro 4, one of the advantages of TRACEMASTER is how little it interferes with other CICS programs running concurrently. A TRACEMASTER transaction can be initiated by someone with little or no effect on other people doing CICS work. Because TRACEMASTER analyzes a program line by line as it is being executed, and displays the contents in a window in real time, you can find the precise line of the program where the error has occurred, and fix it with minimal delay or disruption to business processes.

TRACEMASTER 3.1 supports source level execution tracing of OS/390 CICS, Assembler and COBOL COBOL: see programming language.

Key features include: a scripting language for automated testing and customization; logic path coverage analysis; support for an unlimited number of breakpoints; a history of executed statements to allow reverse logic tracing; and the automatic display of variables referenced by the current program statement.
