Installing and configuring the Compiled Language Interception Processor (CLIP)

You need the Compiled Language Interception Processor (CLIP) agent to record and virtualize DB2® activity in COBOL/PL/I applications on z/OS® systems.

About this task

Install the CLIP agent so that you can record and virtualize CICS® COBOL/PL/I Db2 programs on z/OS. The CLIP agent consists of two components:
  • The CLIP agent front-end running on your workstation.
  • The CLIP agent back-end (probe), running on z/OS systems.
With both components active, you can use HCL OneTest™ API to record and virtualize Db2 activity in COBOL/PL/I applications on z/OS.

Procedure

Download the tools component named HCL OneTest API Agent for Db2 on z/OS.
  1. Go to the Tools link of HCL Quality Server and download HCL OneTest API Agent for Db2 on z/OS.
  2. Extract the contents of IBMDB2ForZOS.zip to a temporary folder on your workstation.
