In our installation, we have now IBM’s RTC - Rational Team
We had Emdevor for many years, but replaced it by RTC, which is far
better, because it integrates with front end applications, has real
time sintax checker (at least for COBOL) and a very good debug
It manages changes during all life cycle to every type of object -
programs, JCL, DB2 objects, has a 3270 emulator and a very
interesting interface with z/OS so one can easily access files on
On the other hand, it runs on a Java virtual machine, which makes
the compilation and promotion processes a little slower.
I work with mainframes for almost 40 years, and I really think that
this is a very good solution.
