You can use Application Delivery Foundation for z/OS (ADFz) on ABO generated modules.
Find out more about Application Delivery Foundation
for z/OS at https://www.ibm.com/ca-en/marketplace/app-delivery-foundation-on-zsystems.
following Application Delivery Foundation for z/OS
family of problem determination tools can be used on ABO generated COBOL modules:
- Developer for z/OS Enterprise Edition, which
includes the IBM® Debug for z/OS
- Fault Analyzer for z/OS® (FA)
- Application Performance Analyzer for z/OS (APA)
In order to use these tools more effectively, you need to produce a LANGX side file for each
optimized program. DT, FA, and APA exploit the side file to provide a better tool experience. For
example, source-level debugging is provided with Debug for z/OS when a LANGX side file is provided. Without the side file, source-level debugging is
Creating a LANGX side file IPVLANGO
is a new tool provided with IBM Problem
Determination Tools Common Component for z/OS V1.7, which is shared by the Application
Delivery Foundation for z/OS tools.
IPVLANGO combines the SYSDEBUG data set or compiler listing or the
LANGX side file of the original compiled program along with the ABO
listing transform to produce a new LANGX side file appropriate for
the ABO generated module. Use the new LANGX file when you use DT,
FA, or APA on the ABO generated module.
