Leverage comprehensive reports showing all activities during program execution, such as IMS DLI call trace, Db2® call trace, WebSphere® MQ call trace, LU6.2/APPC, ETO Status code, and more.
Transaction processing simulation
Utilize simulated transaction processing in batch mode and generate listings containing screen images of transactions including data, user identification information and timestamp through an audit report program.
IMS application testing
Run and test IMS applications from a development environment with the Eclipse interface. You can use common Eclipse wizards to set up runtime parameters and application libraries to run IMS Batch Terminal Simulator.
Process multiple transactions in one step with no changes required to IMS code, control blocks, libraries, or application load modules. Flexible application test periods make application program testing easier to schedule and perform in a more stable online system in both test and production environments.
Integrated application testing
Leverage integration with IBM Debug Tool for z/OS and Rational® Developer for System z® to provide an integrated application testing and debugging environment.
MS Batch Terminal Simulator requires a current version of IMS Database Manager. Conditional operational requirements include:
TSO/E for full screen image support (FSS) of the IBM 3270 display system simulation
Tools Base Distributed Access Infrastructure z/OS V1.3 or later for Eclipse and resource adapter
Rational Developer for z/OS 8.0.1 and prerequisites or Eclipse 3.6.2 or later with Web Tools plugin
WebSphere® Application Server V7 and Batch Terminal Simulator Eclipse interface for resource adapter
IBM DFSORT or a functionally equivalent sort and merge program required for the Playback utility
