Managing and Testing Software for All Business Organizations 

COBOL programming testing software is an enabling tool for programmers that allow for faster Quality Assurance Testing. On mainframes, we have a work stoppage called an Abend. These can occur for several reasons such as coding logic errors, invalid data, storage violations and incorrect parameters for called and calling programs. Products like Abend-Aid and Xpediter allow for the capture of Abends and continued processing capabilities so that the programmer can complete testing the entire code in the program in a single online test session. 

The testing software that Marble Computer supports with Control/DCD and RES:

  • ISPF
  • Xpediter
  • Abend-Aid
  • Endevor
  • Changeman
  • Other z/OS mainframe tools

The Benefits of Testing Your Software Applications 

Problems with the software are a frequent occurrence for industries worldwide and the need to address them is vital. Testing your software is essential in pointing out potential errors during the development of an application. Testing software with strict test execution assures lower maintenance costs. Avoiding failures in your application can lead to reduced maintenance expenses in the later stages of application development. 

A professional programmer and application coder can determine that a software application is designed in a way that is logical and intuitive. Without testing software application developed code, this process would take months to complet rather than weeks or days. Testing software provides tools for a COBOL programmer to validate the code in test processes from Alpha, Beta, and QA. Alpha testing is defined as single program testing. Beta is multiple programs working together in systems or application tests. Quality Assurance is pre-production testing prior to turning over to the operations team.
