With there being a number of new features introduced with CEETRACE and some possibly new uses for CEETRACE utilities I thought it would be a good idea to put some of these ideas into a document that can be publicly viewed on-line for reference and to demonstrate some of the capabilities now available.
The first item is a document that can be treated as a summary and "hands-on" assistance for anyone either thinking about activating CEETRACE or as a enhancement feature list for those already utilising the tool.
Next is a tutorial I have put together to demonstate one particular new feature that is now available (with the latest fix-packs installed) for z/VSE 4.3 and z/VSE 5.1 users. The tutorial uses a simple COBOL/VSE program to corrupt heap storage (produce a CEE0802C error) and then shows how using the new CEETRACE enhancements how easy it can be to identify both the program and even the statement number that is responsible for the corruption.
The sample COBOL program used in the above video tutorial can be downloaded from here :
