ZUnit is an adaptation of the xUnit framework for writing code to run repeatable, self-checking unit tests. The ideas and framework that are developed in xUnit for unit testing object-oriented code are adapted by ZUnit for testing Enterprise COBOL and PL/I code.
You must configure several preferences and property group settings before generating a test case for the z/OS Dynamic Test Runner. The test runner executes all test cases in batch and allows you to test your program without dependency on programs that are not a part of the application, such as CICS, Db2, and other middleware. The test runner runs one or more test cases that are defined in an input configuration and generates a consolidated report of the results after all test cases are run.
This video demonstrates the IDz client configuration steps for creating a ZUnit test case in a remote project. You’ll learn how to create a property group for the application and then associate the property group with the application in order to create a test case.
