Fix for MFED JCL debugger in Enterprise server the COBOL module breakpoints not working the code is bypassing all the preassigned breakpoints.
I am using MFED for Eclipse - Enterprise Developer 3.0 Version: 3.0.00494.
There is an issue in the Enterprise Debugger for both CICS and JCL , when set with breakpoints in COBOL modules. The debugger doesn't stop on any of the breakpoints and runs through the entire routine without stopping. It does not look like a code issue since its working fine in Mainframe terminal.
Can anyone please suggest how to fix this issue?
The breakpoints issue is happening for both CICS and Batch debugging. All breakpoints were assigned prior to starting the debugger. The issue is reoccurring whenever there is a change made in any COBOL module in the project and then recompiled and set to debug. Currently using Debug Launch config files to start debugging.
Debugging Console showing just these two messages and the routine runs through without stopping on the breakpoint:
Loaded: E:\MFED\bin\casumxit.dll\casumxit- Not compiled for debugging
Loaded: E:\MFED\bin\mfjmvs.dll\mfjxxit- Not compiled for debugging
Where are the executables residing, a local drive or a network drive?
How did you start your regions - the web admin page, the server explorer page in Eclipse or from the command line with CASSTART?
Do you have any fix packs applied to Enterprise Developer? If not you may want to get the latest one and apply it to see if that may help. Also Enterprise Developer 4 has been aout for some time, it's a free upgrade if you are on maintenance so you may also want to consider upgrading, although this issue should have nothing to do with being on 3.0 as thousands of customer use it daily with no issues.
if you are on maintenance ro doing a evaluation, you may want to consider opening a support ticket. supportline.microfocus.com as the engineers there are likely to be at least as responsive as this forum
