casesxml can perform one of two operations:
casesxml is useful in any situation where you want to make a copy of the key resource definitions used in your Enterprise Server setup. This could be for backup purposes, for instance, or to enable you to share common resource definitions across multiple users.
casesxml consolidates functionality from the mfds command, the casrdtex CICS command, and the mfcatxml catalog import/export utility. Whether you use casesxml or an individual command or utility depends on the type of information that you want to import or export.
