Description

We are trying to test our CA Telon CICS programs with Mainframe Express (MFE, a testing and debugging tool that runs on a PC by emulating the z/OS environment. Are there any specific settings we need to use when building our programs for this?

Solution

Since many mainframe CA Telon subroutines are written in Assembler, you cannot use them on the PC. Therefore, you will need to replace them with COBOL modules or other alternatives. in COBOL. CA Telon mapping module TLRATIO is mainframe-only, and will not run on the PC, but you can use BMS mapping instead. To set up your programs so you can test them with Mainframe Express, we recommend you use the following parameter settings to generate your programs:

  LINEOPT=2 
  BMS=Y 
  FEATURE=(...,ABNORMALT,1) 
  TRACE=N
