IBM and Standardware Software Developers have enhanced the support for Debug Tool and COPE. Based on high demand from customers, IBM and Standardware jointly developed a way for individual Debug Tool, users to simultaneously test different versions of the same online transaction without affecting other users who share the same message regions.
