Overview

File-AID is Compuware’s cross-platform file and data management solution that enables developers and QA staff to quickly and conveniently access necessary data and files instead of hunting around for them. In turn, developers devote less time to data-related tasks and spend more time developing new functionality and managing production problems. Rightsizing your test data provides confidence to make code changes without unintended consequences.

File-AID gives developers the ability to:

  • Effectively manage files and data across platforms
  • Access all standard file types regardless of record length or format for application integration
  • Automatically compare data files or objects to simplify the test results validation process
  • Reformat files by easily modifying an existing file format instead of starting from scratch
  • Extract and load related subsets of data from multiple databases and files
  • Ensure all test conditions are met by selecting the precise application test data you need
  • Customize test data for a particular application and specific conditions
  • Automate these activities using tools you already own, such as Jenkins

Intelligent Analysis and Visualization of Mainframe Programs Topaz for Program Analysis is part of the Compuware Topaz suite of mainframe development and testing tools. It helps developers understand unfamiliar or complex mainframe applications through a visual representation of both the code structure and logic as well as the actual I/O and program trail during execution. Topaz for Program Analysis includes Runtime Visualizer, a feature that provides unprecedented graphical visibility into often-complex interactions between mainframe programs. This visibility makes it easy for veteran and novice developers alike to quickly understand, update and troubleshoot even the oldest and most complex mainframe code. With Topaz for Program Analysis, developers can: See dynamic, graphical mapping of program-to-program calls Pinpoint performance bottlenecks, inefficiencies and inter-program impacts Analyze and understand deeper program details See a “snapshot” of a program’s real behavior in production under present conditions Group together source code for programs into Java-like “projects” Discover and investigate dependencies across programs and copybooks, without moving code off the mainframe See an instant static visual summary of a single program Support both COBOL and PL/1 applications.
