BMC AMI DevX Abend-AID 17.02

This space contains information about the 17.02.00 release of the BMC AMI DevX Abend-AID product, formerly known as BMC Compuware Abend-AID.

The BMC AMI DevX Abend-AID product is a failure resolution and fault management solution that enables developers to reduce the tedious and time-consuming task of manually cross-referencing pages of recorded application memory information with pages of application code to understand why an application failure occurred.

BMC AMI DevX Abend-AID intercepts and analyzes application program failures to provide comprehensive fault diagnostics reacting specifically to the type of error, the language of the failing program, and the types of files or databases in use. The product provides diagnostics for Db2, IMS, and IDMS databases as well as COBOL, PL/I, Assembler, C, and VS FORTRAN languages.
