Folks,

We've been asked to look at the feasibility of using Microfocus Mainframe
Express to offload our COBOL unit testing, with IMS/DB and DB2, using IMS/TM
as transaction monitor, from the mainframe.

We've got IMS V7 (with HALDB), DB2 V6 (soon V7) and use some "new"
functionality (triggers, stored procedures, LOBs, etc.).

Anyone got any experiences (good or bad) from using this tool ?

TIA

Phil
