What's new in IBM Z Open Unit Test

For what's new in IBM z/OS Debugger, see Summary of changes for z/OS Debugger.

Version 2.0.1

The following changes were added for IBM® Z Open Unit Test Version 2.0.1.

COBOL Editor
  • Introduces a check during file save that ensures all characters can be mapped to an appropriate remote or local code page.
  • Support for the Filter view menu item. To open a filter view on a source file in the editor, right-click and select Filter View.
  • You can now export a program control flow diagram to a .png file.
PL/I Editor
  • Introduces a check during file save that ensures all characters can be mapped to an appropriate remote or local code page.
  • Support for the Filter view menu item. To open a filter view on a source file in the editor, right-click and select Filter View.
  • You can now export a program control flow diagram to a .png file.
Rational Team Concert Integration
The IBM Rational Team Concert product has been renamed IBM Engineering Workflow Management. This change is now reflected in the Knowledge Center.
z/OS Automated Unit Testing Framework (zUnit)
  • Introducing the IBM z/OS Dynamic Test Runner to the test case recorder function of zUnit. The z/OS Dynamic Test Runner can intercept calls made by CICS and Db2 application programs to record details about those calls. After the data is recorded, those same application programs can be rerun in batch, without the need for the original environment, and be fed back the values from the recorded data. The programs can also be modified and then rerun to ensure they perform without regression. The z/OS Dynamic Test Runner enables automation of the testing process for online transactions and batch programs, both single programs and thousands of transactions making up an entire system test.
  • The zUnit Preferences page has been moved to a more visible location in the Preferences window navigation. To open the zUnit Preferences page, select Window > Preferences > z/OS Automated Unit Testing Framework (zUnit).
  • The Test Case Editor includes filters for showing or hiding DFHEIBLK and SQLCA fields. This filter can make the Test Case Editor easier to navigate.
  • When exporting a playback file, you can now directly create a new file or update an existing one.
  • Support for opening the Test Case Editor in browse mode so that test cases can be viewed, but not modified.
  • A new preference option allows the test case name prefix to replace the initial characters of the test case name. This option can make it easier to create test case name prefixes that adhere to your test case naming conventions.
  • You can now specify the AZUZ2S21.xsl style sheet to format version 2.1.0.0 test runner results into SonarQube-consumable results.
z/OS Integrated Development Environment (zIDE)
When you open a new workspace, the z/OS Projects view contains links for creating a z/OS project, importing a z/OS project, creating a local z/OS project, and opening help for z/OS projects.

Version 2.0

The following changes were added for IBM Z Open Unit Test Version .

    • Using Alt+Shift+U to toggle vertical line indicator in COBOL and PL/I editors
    • Saving software analysis reports in both HTML and PDF formats
      • You can print or save a software analysis report in the HTML or the PDF format.
    • z/OS® Automated Unit Testing Framework (zUnit)
      • You can now filter recorded CICS/Db2 COBOL data, export and import playback files, and remove unwanted data from the recording using the enhanced Test Data Editor.
    • Integrating IBM Z Open Unit Test and Dependency Based Build
      • You can now save, export, and import a DBB User Build configuration and apply it as the project default to apply it to all related project files.
      • You can start a quick build on a file or a project after a configuration has been applied to it.
      • You can now customize your groovy script calls with custom arguments.
      • Resolving dependencies now uses the "Content Types" preference to determine what extensions to check. Adding extensions to these preferences allows you to use custom extension names for copybooks or include files.
