I have been asked to research debug tool for our shop. We are mostly an LE COBOL shop and do batch and CICS processing. I reviewed IBM debug tool, xpediter, Ca-Intertest,ASG-SmartTest and they appear to all be somewhat equal in functionality. So now I am trying,unsuccessfully to find the answers to some questions that would help us make a decision. Are some easier to use, to install, to maintain than other. Do some require pre-processing while other don't, can you use the same software for batch and CICS or do you need 2 different components of the products.
I looked on the forum but did not find this specific topic. If these questions have been answered can someone direct me to the correct forum.
