Important Observations

  • The device used for batch debug must be active (i.e. the 5250 workstation must be powered on or the 5250 emulation session started). A user should not be signed on to the terminal. You cannot use batch debug if the display station is already allocated.
  • The interactive and batch debug have identical features.
  • The batch debug can be nominated either in the URL directly, or it can be called from your generated HTML pages.
  • Tips & Techniques

  • Remember, you must not be signed on to the device nominated for batch debug.
  • WEBEVENT functions terminate immediately after the REQUEST or DISPLAY statement.
  • You cannot debug a function that is locked by a developer.  A common mistake is to have the function editor open while attempting to debug the function.
