We are coding for a project, where my screen is being called from some other screen.
I have completed coding for my screen but the calling screen is not yet completed (which is being coded by someone else). I want to start with testing of my code now rather then waiting for calling screen to be completed.
Can you please provide me some ways to test my code as a stand alone program, without much change in code?
Can populating linkage section through a JCL, be an option?
I have tried to search the forum for standalone testing of cics program, but could not find much.

Dave - Well, you're past step 01 (didn't abend)
But, I think you're going to have to get Tech Support to define your program to a temporary transid (PCT entry) of their choosing and then you can begin step 02, debugging with CEDF, IBM DebugTool and/or a 3rd-Party Debugger.
Is your commarea a minimum of 9-Bytes and is your program validating EIBCALEN? Are all '9's a valid commarea value?
Also, you don't need the transid option on the LINK....
