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.

Introduction to DOORS Next Generation v4.0.5 for DOORS v9.5.2 Users- This video introduces IBM Rational DOORS Next Generation to people already familiar with IBM Rational DOORS 9. It highlights some basic differences between the two applications, including deployment, terminology, administration and basic use.
One thing that is not obvious in the video but should be noted, is that if you install Rational DOORS Next Generation as part of the IBM Rational solution, with IBM Rational Quality Manager and IBM Rational Team Concert, you get additional lifecycle capabilities with your Rational DOORS or Rational DOORS Next Generation license.
