“Our applications are complex and multitiered. It’s not
uncommon to jump between several platforms to chase a bug
from a web page, through WebSphere and into a CICS
transaction. We can do it all from one IDE now.”

“As a developer I need to be able to quickly select, run, and
verify the results of test cases.”

New “Run [All] As Test Case” action eliminates these manual steps:
1. Create and upload a runner configuration file for the test case(s) to run.
2. Create/Update JCL to call the test runner specifying source runner configuration file, target runner result
file, and test case load library.
3. Delete the target runner result file if it already exists (previous result).
4. Submit JCL to start the test runner.
5. Monitor JES until the test runner job completes.
6. Locate and open the runner result file (if one was generated).
