Debugging PL/I projects

To debug a local or remote PL/I project you first need to create a debug configuration. This is a set of options and values that determine how a debug session runs and what values it should use.

The following PL/I debug configuration types are available:
  • PL/I Application
  • PL/I Attach to Process - when you want to start debugging a PL/I user program/process that is already running.
  • PL/I Enterprise Server - when you want to debug PL/I applications on Enterprise Server.
  • PL/I Wait for Application Attachment - puts Eclipse in debug wait state until user program signals it's ready to start debugging, usually with a call to PLITEST().
