If you are a new user of Rational Developer for System z (RD/z), this document is intended to help you get started on debugging Cobol programs on z/OS. The example shown here is for a simple Cobol program for a batch runtime environment.
It is assumed that you have installed RD/z (for example RDZ 9.0) on your client platform, and have set up connection to the RD/z host component using Remote System Explorer.
The images show in this document are from from RD/z client. It is assumed that you are working on an RD/z Eclipse client IDE and are familiar with navigation on the IDE.
Step 1: Verify that debug Listener is configured and operational
Switch to Debug Perspective:
Click on UI Daemon Listener:
Typically the listener will be listening on port 8002.
Step 2: Set the property group for the program to be debugged
In this example we select program MYMAIN.cbl in a z/OS project .
In the property group, set the normal Cobol compile settings, and select the Run tab
Step 3 - Select the program and debug
To debug the program you will create a JCL file for compile link and go. the go step will contact the listening daemon.
In this case the JCL is in a member named MYMAIN in MAHADEV.BATCH.JCL
After the generation of JCL is complete, you may submit it to launch the debugger.
This will take you to the interactive debug window.

At Innovate 2012, IBM Rational caught up with IBM Electronic Support's guru Pat O'Connor (rationalwebguy on twitter) and chatted with him about what's new... plus we caught his session on making the most out of IBM eSupport and rolled it all up in to a Youtube video. Normally I wouldn't post two Youtube videos back to back like this, preferring to vary the type of content we highlight, but we just couldn't wait to get this one out there!
What's new in IBM electronic support- We managed to catch up with Pat O'Connor at Innovate 2012 who talked us through the latest innovations helping IBM customers get product support.

Very cool IBM commercial but perhaps you want to know more. Here's a longer (22-min), but very interesting video: David Ferrucci of IBM discusses the DeepQA Project; the technology and architecture behind IBM's newest technological innovation, the question answering and natural language processing system, Watson.
It IS exciting! And wicked cool!
And p.s. can I get of those nifty clear dry-erase boards in my office?
UPDATE: Seen on Twitter: Check out this preview: NOVA PBS Special on @IBMWatson: "Smartest Machine on Earth." Premiering Feb 9 @ 10pm EST http
