DETROIT, Jan. 29, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Compuware Corporation (Nasdaq:CPWR), the technology performance company, today announced important enhancements to the Compuware Workbench, a standardized point-and-click mainframe application development interface. The Workbench now features faster and more efficient file and data management capabilities -- including the ability to edit complex IMS databases -- as well as more robust debugging functionality, all designed to significantly boost developer productivity. The Workbench helps companies "future proof" mainframe development by providing an environment where new and inexperienced developers can produce high quality applications that drive business success.
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.
- Advanced 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.
