We use CICS Explorer to debug COBOL programs at our shop.The ones that we normally do are the Enterprise COBOL programs.
Currently I'm working with OS VS COBOL programs and I feel that if I could get these programs tested via the debugger it would be faster than my manual testing.
I referenced the below document and was able to generate the EQALANGX file for my OS VS COBOL program.

After generating the EQALANGX file,I referenced the below document and looked at some other notes too and made modifications to the run jcl as shown below and ran it,
http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.w ... 089&aid=13
//STEP01 EXEC PGM=MYPROG,COND=(9,EQ),TIME=1439,
// PARM='/TEST(,CMDS,;,TCPIP&MYIPADDRESS%PORT:*) TRAP(ON) ',
The program popped up on the debugger (CICS Explorer) but it was in Assembler format as shown below.
4 00007004 185D LR R5,R13
6 00007006 05F0 BALR R15,0
8 00007008 4580 F010 BAL R8,16(,R15)
C 0000700C C4D4 C9D8 E2F7 LGHRL R13,*-1817066002
12 00007012 F140 E5E2 D9F1 MVO 1506(5,R14),2545(1,R13)
18 00007018 0700 BCR 0,0
Can someone familiar with this process please tell what am I doing wrong here ? I have sent an email to my system programmer (who usually setup debug profiles) but he is out today and will be back on Monday.But I'm not sure if he is familiar with OS VS COBOL debugging.
