Debugging with RDi From the On Ramp to the Cruising Lane
Displaying active variables? Check.
Breakpoints? Yep, we got those too. Conditional and watch
breakpoints? Sure thing. But what about service entry points,
which allow us to debug another user’s job without having to use
STRSRVJOB? Debug configurations to save multiple debug settings?
Code coverage that shows each line of code executed when a
program has completed? This is only the start of how the
graphical RDi debugger exceeds the capabilities to the green

Message from the President
Welcome to the
first NEMUG Newsletter of 2018, boy does time fly!
We had a great turnout for the last meeting
we had, way back in November. Almost 30 people attended while we
heard from John Valance on SQL stored Procedures and application
Modernization. Hopefully, weather permitting, we can get as many
or more to come join us January 17 when Charlie Guarino comes to
with RDi From the On Ramp to the Cruising’.
<soapbox> Whether you are
going to attend or not, please think about this…Why attend a
NEMUG meeting? Do you come for the Topic, the speaker, the food,
or to network with others in the same line of work? We get
together in the summer to try to line up topics and speakers for
the following year, then every month present the topics that we
believe have a lot of interest. If we never hear from you, then
you may not see what you want to learn about. Please let us know
what you’re interested in, so we can better manage this, “Your
Users’ Group”! </soapbox>
Hope to see a crowd in
Happy New Year!
And, “may the Force be with
us”; or “May the odds be always in our Favor”.
