Automated Software Tools Corporation
Z390 CICS compatible assembler application transaction manager support
has been developed by Melvyn Maltz and is distributed as open source
in the Z390\CICS directory.

The Z390 CICS compatible transaction manager includes a server
supporting multiple local and remote sessions connected via a TCP/IP
network. The transaction server can be started by running
CICS\Z390CICG.BAT which also starts local terminal sessions.

Remote clients can be started by running CICS\Z390KCPL.BAT for multiple
remotes or CICS\Z390KCPR.BAT for a single remote for tracing and testing.

The EZ390 runtime emulation TCPIO macro and SVC support for SOA client
server messaging is used to request CICS functions from the server and
to pass data and status back to the Client on a TCP/IP network.

Starting with z390 v1.3.08h, the CICS compatible transaction manager supports
all VSAM base datasets for read and browse functions.

Startubg with z390 v1.4.02, the CICS compatilbe transaction manager supports Basic Mapping Support (BMS).

All the documentation included with each new release is in the CICS\docs
directory as follows:

Z390 macro assembler and emulator support features supporting the above
CICS compatible transaction manager include the following:

The MZ390 macro processor parses EXEC CICS statements and maps them
into standard assembler macro calls. All the EXEC CICS support macros
are in the CICS directory.

The MZ390 macro processor replaces standard DFHRESP(error code)
references with the corresponding standard full word literal error
code constant.

The EZ390 runtime GUAM user interface dialog is used by each client
to support TN3270 screen and keyboard I/O via TPUT with FULLSCR
option and TGET with ASIS option for TN3270 standard data streams.
