The CL Corner: Testing Your CL Program Error-Handling

Register and use the Command Analyzer Retrieve exit point.

I recently received a note from Phillip M., asking about the availability of APIs to aid in his testing of CL programs. In part, he says, "The commands generate CPF, BRM, and LNT message id's. I can't duplicate hardly any of the errors that will come up and I need to test the CL thoroughly before I put it into production. I really need the MONMSG command to pick up what I throw at it."


Having had similar needs in the past--how to generate specific failure conditions for testing purposes--I can readily understand his need. And I suspect some of you reading this article feel likewise. Fortunately, there is a fairly easy way to accomplish his objective (assuming that your system is at V4R5 or later).

VMware has introduced a groundbreaking upgrade to its operating system and suite of tools that increases performance to such an extent that there is now little downside to operating in a virtual environment, given all the reliability, management, and cost benefits to running VMware on x86 servers.


VMware vSphere 4, which has been in beta and operating in test environments at a number of companies, was formally announced this week by VMware and is expected to be released for general availability before the end of June.
