Converting to CICS TS V4.2 up to TS 5.5?
Macro Level Interpreter
(z/OS and VSE)
Have your Comet maintenance or upgrade fees gone out of sight? Consider replacing it with Macro Level Interpreter (MLI).
VS/Cobol Interpreter allows programs written and compiled with OS/VS COBOL to execute in supported releases of the CICS Transaction Server. No program changes or recompiles are required. Continue seamlessly running your OS/VS COBOL programs in CICS TS V4 and V5.
VTAM/Switch (z/OS and VSE) replaces VTAM session managers. Check out its list of features, functions, and price vs. TPX, Supersession, Macro4/UNICOM Tubes, or the session manager you now use.
SM/SWAP is a separately licensed component of Session Manager for CICS, allowing a single CICS terminal to function as up to eight logical terminals, each running the same or a different transaction.
Interactive, source-level debuggers for batch and CICS
Track (z/OS and VSE) replaces interactive, source-level debuggers for CICS (Intertest, Expeditor, Fault Analyzer). Track debugs online application programs written in COBOL, Assembler, and PL/1. Includes DB2, DL/1, IDMS, and Datacom support. Track supports through CICS/TS 5.5 for z/OS and TS 2.2 for VSE.
