TPF Dump Analyzer

R. Greg Arbon, Laurie Atkinson, James Chen, and Chris A. Guida

The TPF dump analyzer (TDA) was conceived in an effort to create an intelligent programming assistant for the transaction-processing facility (TPF) programming environment where IBM System/370 assembly language is used. This particular program represents the first component of the system, which provides expert advice in the domain of solving run-time control dumps (software exceptions) in the TPF environment. This program is used by the application development, run-time cover-age, and stability staff members at Covia Technologies to provide more rapid problem diagnosis and resolution to a set of common TPF programming errors. The system has an installed base of nearly 750 users and has proven to be a useful tool in diagnosing commonly occurring errors in the TPF environment.
