Compuware Unveils Workbench Innovations That Significantly Boost Developer Productivity

In addition to a more robust File-AID Data Editor, Workbench users -- without needing prior knowledge of legacy mainframe systems -- will also enjoy:

  • A simplified file and data management process. The File-AID Data Editor now supports the XREF capabilities of File-AID MVS by automating the selection and usage of record layouts for files with different record types. File-AID determines the record layout to use for each record type by the value in one or more data fields.
  • Additional flexibility when debugging programs. Xpediter/Eclipse now includes "Monitor/Reverse" and "Step Into," "Step Over," and "Step Return," along with other enhancements that provide developers with more flexibility when navigating through source code during the application debugging process.
  • Ad vanced internal diagnostics and component level checking. Users can now automatically display compile diagnostics, such as syntax errors and compiler warnings, enabling developers to quickly pinpoint the exact location of the errant code causing an application error.  

The Workbench now supports all major environments and formats of Compuware's developer productivity product lines -- Abend-AID, Hiperstation, Xpediter, Strobe and File-AID -- giving developers the tools they need to develop, test, debug and tune applications.

"Mainframe applications support billions of banking and mobile commerce transactions a day across the globe," continued Manery. "These applications are deceivingly simple on the front end -- hit a few keys on your phone and a few days later a package arrives in the mail. The fact is that these applications are highly complex and require specialized tools to develop and maintain them. Compuware continues to make strategic investments in its mainframe solutions to help developers of all experience levels continue the important work of developing critical applications."
