What is Compuware File-AID?

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

What is our primary use case?

We use it to update data in Compuware File-AID for IMS and File-AID MBF. We also use it in test cases. Compuware File-AID can be used for DB2 as well.

Pros and Cons

  • "I like the ability that it has to format copy books in a presentable manner. So, you will be able to see the starting offset in length of each field within the layout."
  • "Technical support has gotten better over the years, though there's always room for improvement."

What other advice do I have?

I think it's a very decent product and would recommend Compuware File-AID. I would give it a rating of nine on a scale from one to ten.
