Make transaction applications easier to navigate with SDF II
Design, test, implement and maintain user interfaces that help make IBM CICS®, IBM IMS™, ISPF, CSP or GDDM applications easier and simpler to navigate.
Reduce future re-engineering
Review the flow of panels with the eventual application user before anyone writes a line of code to help minimize future re-engineering efforts.
Exploit transaction application services
Use Screen Definition II objects in applications developed with or that use CICS BMS, IMS MFS, ISPF, GDDM-IMD or CSP/AD.
Develop objects that can be defined using CICS BMS macros, IMS MFS utility control statements, ISPF panel definitions, GDDM-IMD and CSP/AD. Import/generate objects for IMS MFS.
