The XPEDITER/TSO options (1 through 7) on the Environments Menu screen invoke a debugging session and execute the application program in the TSO address space. The XPEDITER/IMS options (8 through 11) on the Environments Menu invoke a debugging session and execute the IMS/DC application program in the message region, the BMP region, and the Fast Path region.
If you are developing IMS/DC applications, XPEDITER/IMS provides the capability of debugging IMS/DC programs that are actually running in the IMS dependent regions, whereas XPEDITER/TSO provides the capability of debugging IMS/DC applications with the use of a simulator (BTS) under TSO. Operations of XPEDITER/IMS, however, require at least one logical TSO terminal and one logical IMS terminal (it can be an ATM terminal), both on the same CPU.
Suggest you start from Chapter 7, Debugging With XPEDITER/IMS in XPEDITER/TSO and XPEDITER/IMS COBOL User’s Guide from Compuware.
