Team Lead ALM Activities

  • Introduce you to the Updated (Sept 09)Endevor Plug-in for working within the IBM RDz (7.5 and above)
  • Review the CA CMEW r12 integration through the Eclipse Plug in
  • Review the IBM RDz Endevor Eclipse view
  • Understand the benefits and target audience
  • See the plug-in in action, through a live demo
  • Discuss installation and support issues
  • Introduction
  • Architecture
  • Demo
  • Infrastructure
  • Endevor RDz Plug in with IBM’s RDz
  • Debugging aids and tips
  • Queues and contacts
  • Q&A
  • The plug-in provides a “duel” developer interface to an Endevor set up
    • Off mainframe (windows based) direct element editing
    • Off mainframe (Web Based) Endevor access and control.
  • MF security is still the driver…
    • BUT NO TSO SEGMENT NEEDED (save on TSO Resources)
  • The Eclipse Base provides the base ISPF Quick Edit facilities with additional non MF features (local History etc)
  • Certified for Windows Eclipse 3.5 and below and IBM’s RDz (7.5 and above)
  • What do developers do?
    • Browse elements
    • View processor output
    • Modify elements and rebuild executables
    • Require remote debugging facilities

Preview: RDz with Endevor Plug-In Adding EGL Source via CMEW

Package EGL Source and Store In Endevor

Within the RDz Project Explorer it is a simple Copy from the EGL Package and Paste over the Endevor Project to prepare to add EGL into CA Endevor on z/OS. Then Update the Endevor Project with the appropriate Change Control Identifier (CCID to relate all objects) from your existing Change number for the new application (or enhancement). Then use the Team (drop-down) to add to Endevor). The only prompt is for the Processor Group – EGL. Then the egl (with the long or short names) are propagated to CA Endevor. The Endevor Log will identify the results.

Ensure Relationship Between EGL Source and Generated Cobol

As part of the RDz Generate – COBOL source (and any ancillary files) are passed to a JCL processes executed on the z/OS. This process has an Endevor step that adds these objects into Endevor and runs a Process (Pre-compile, Compile and optional Bind) using the CCID specified as a comment. Now the EGL and COBOL source is related with the CCID.  All elements (current and previous) can be returned to RDz via this unique CCID.

(Note: DB2 DDL can also be implemented as objects in CA Endevor from RDz).
