Hi. I found some high level docs about RDZ and it sounded pretty good. I'm currently not working and I have an idea for a product - and I'm interested in developing a simple prototype of it... but it requires batch and CICS apps to exchange data (real time) with web services. Can that be accomplished in RDZ? Also - what are the usage issues/limitations you've run into while working with RDZ? Appreciate any newbie advice, folks.

Just to make sure we are talking about the same thing since you posted in the RDT forum:
- RDz is a product that essentially provides an Eclipse GUI for mainframe development like Java developers have used for years. It has some tools to help create web services
- RDz-UT (Unit Test) was completely unrelated to RDz. This is the old name of RDT
- RDT is the product that provides the zSeries hardware emulation, and thus allows running z/OS and z/VM on x86 hardware. Once z/OS is up and running, it is just another z/OS image with all of the internal connectivity and all the external TCP/IP connectivity you are used to.
Which one are you referring to?
