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.

Over the years, many clients have developed their own programming practices and naming standards to reinforce company policies. When editing workstation source files (COBOL or PL/I) with non-standard file extensions, the file extensions have to be defined to Eclipse in order to be recognized by the Rational Developer for System z (RDz) editors. This technical blog will further describe in detail the steps involved for adding the file extensions to Eclipse's general "Content Types".
5. Scroll down the list of Text file associations and select "PL/I Source File"

In the Rational Developer for System z (RDz) version 9.0, when you use the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) connection, you may see the following error while enabling your CICS debug configuration profile before debugging you CICS application:
where HOST1 is the z/OS host of your secure connection.
Managing SSL security and certificates: http
Using SSL security for Explorer connections: http
If you do not need to use certificates with your SSL connection, you can prevent the error by disabling the certificate management in RDz in the following way:
1. On the workbench menu bar click Window -> Preferences, then expand Explorer and click Certificate management.
