Supported debug scenarios l.jpg

Supported Debug Scenarios

  • Submit and Debug Program in Batch Job

    • Job name is same name as program

    • Job owner is current User

    • Submitted to QUSRWRK subsystem

  • Debug existing job on system

    • Browse option for locating job

    • Cut and paste job information

  • STRDBG command from emulation session

    • Debug manager must be active and ready

    • Must be same user as registered in Debug Manager

    • Emulation session must be running on same ip address as Debug Manager

    • If criteria is not satisfied; traditional green screen debugger is launched

Advantages l.jpg


  • Run to Cursor

  • Monitor/Watch several fields at a time

  • Multiple Breakpoint Groups in 1 program

  • Automatically Saves Previous Debug Session

  • Save the current session to local drive

Qtesdbghub l.jpg


  • Starting the Debug Hub



  • Runs in QSYSWRK subsystem

  • Single point of contact for user interface

    • Registered in TCP/IP service table (port 4026)

    • User interface uses port mapper to locate server

  • Submits Debug Server jobs (QTESDBGSVR)

  • Registration facility for iSeries Debug Manager

    • STRDBG command from an emulator will perform graphical debug instead of traditional green screen debug

Qtesdbgsvr l.jpg


  • Submitted by QTESDBGHUB

  • Runs in QUSRWRK subsystem

    • Make sure QUSRWRK subsystem is started

    • Make sure QUSRNOMAX job queue is not held

  • Issues STRSRVJOB and STRDBG against job to be debugged

  • One QTESSBGSVR job per user interface window

Client setup l.jpg

Client Setup

  • Install Java 1.3 run-time environment (JRE)

  • Copy JavaHelp (

    • Jhall.jar contains java classes necessary to display help

  • Copy jt400.jar to client

    • /QIBM/PRODDATA/HTTP/public/jt400/lib/jt400.jar

  • Copy iSeries System Debugger tes.jar to client

    • /QIBM/PRODDATA/HTTP/public/jt400/lib/tes.jar

  • Modify Classpath

    • Right click “My Computer”

    • select “Properties”

    • Select “ADVANCED” tab


    • Highlight “CLASSPATH” and select EDIT

    • i.e. CLASSPATH=C:\debugger\tes.jar;C:\debugger\jt400.jar;C:\debugger\jhall.jar
