Error description

  • When debugging a remote CICS program in Rational Developer for
    System z (RDz), the user has several ways to start the CICS
    Debug Configuration wizard -- Debug Menu, z/OS Projects view,
    CICS Explorer views and Enterprise Service Tools Project
    Explorer. Through the CICS Explorer views, the Debug
    Configuration can be accessed by selecting programs or a
    transaction and then select Debug > Debug Configurations.
    However, with the upgrade to 9.5.1 and CICS Explorer 5.3, the
    user observed that the Debug menu actions were missing from the
    CICS Explorer views.
    

Local fix

  • Other ways the user can get to the Debug Configurations dialog
    include:
    1) Typing Debug Configurations into the Quick Access text box in
    the
    product toolbar, and choosing the option listed next to the word
    Menus
    (see below)
    
    
    
    2) Switching to the Debug perspective and choosing the down
    arrow next
    to the Debug icon in the toolbar (see below), then selecting
    Debug
    Configurations.
    
    3. The user can also add the debug toolbar to any perspective
    (if its not already there) as follows:
        a. Select Windows > Customize perspective from the main menu
        b.Select the Debug action in the Launch list
    

Problem summary

  • Debug actions were missing from the context menu CICS Explorer
    views in RDz.
    

Problem conclusion

  • CICS Explorer views were migrated to the new eclipse command
    framework for menu contributions, thus causing the debug actions
     to no longer appear.  The debug actions were migrated to the
    command framework and are now visible again in the context menu.
