It all depends on the application.

Jon mentioned how he does it with HTTPAPI. Most of my applications use
GETURI... so if debug is ON, then I make sure any piece of software I'm
using, if it has a debug option, is on as well.

Thanks Brad,
When DEBUG is on, does the program do other stuff apart from not delete the
JSON data?

I use a data area or control file to say if debug is on or not for my
application.

I actually always save the JSON data (building or receiving).. .and if
debug is turned off I remove the file(s) with RMVLNK at the end. That
way
if it hard crashes the data may still be there to look at without having
to
recreate the problem.

I know others do differently, but after years I've found that's the
easiest.

Hi,



At the moment, during testing, each time my CGI programme receives JSON
data, I'm saving it to the IFS.


As I won't need to keep the JSON data once the application is deployed,
what
would be the best way to dynamically turn on and off the save function
of
the program in case it were needed? Seems to me there are many ways of
doing it. I could configure an environment variable, an URL, change a
data
area, etc. What do you people do ?




Thanks !
