You don't "compile" a program using Xpediter; You may add a step in your compilation job to insert your program's listing into Xpediter's database (the DDIO file), for later debugging.

You don't comile your program with ISPF, either. You use ISPF screens and skeletones to invoke the compiler. You can invoke the same compiler using ready job batch, or directly from within program/exec.

Expediter is mainly a debugging tool that enables the user to step thru a program per instruction, set breakpoints, monitor the values of variables and much much more. Your normal batch compile will construct a load module for batch execution but you will have to review program results at the end of the run.
