Where did you hear this?

What kind of problem do you need to debug?

If you have a "testing" transaction, you might consider debugging this "async program" online at a "real" terminal.

CICS asynchronous tasks are 'behind the scenes' process. they run in the background like batch jobs, can self-start at preset frequencies, and have no screens. one of the major uses of async tasks is to transfer data between regions.

Have you looked at Use CEDX to monitor and debug non-terminal transactions.?

Commercial tools (Intertest, Xpeditor) have the ability to catch background programs.

Just as your anti-virus program is working in the background on your PC, these programs run in the CICS background.
One program cannot be "async". You have to have at least 2 programs, so they can run synchronously or a-synchronously.
Use simple terminology when you can.

since CICS async program cannot be started through input CICS transaction ID in terminal, so It makes sense to use some 'virtual terminal' to stimulate the normal CICS transaction start in real terminal

While the normal mode of operation for these is detached from a terminal, i believe you should be able to run the code from a terminal also - possibly there is something in this code that prevents associating this program to a terminal transaction for testing. . .
