IBM Debug Tool Plug-in for Eclipse provides easy access through a graphical user interface (GUI) on the workstation to Debug Tool for z/OS. The GUI can be used to help debug z/OS-based load modules running on MVS, including load modules that run in a subsystem like CICS, DB2 or IMS. The GUI interface allows you to access debugging capability similar to that accessed by the z/OS host interface, allowing you to do the following tasks:
- Set and clear breakpoints at a specific line.
- Set and clear breakpoints for an error or warning-level error that is based on Language Environment severities.
- Run to a breakpoint.
- Step into a procedure.
- Step over a procedure.
- View variable values and change them as you step through the code.
- View variable values in the context of a larger area of storage.
- View the call stack.
