Micro Focus BMS Painter

If your application uses Basic Mapping Support (BMS) mapsets, which provide the user interface, you might need to update these. The Micro Focus BMS Painter enables you to do this.

The painter provides a screen painting facility that enables fields, labels, and attributes to be defined and positioned as they would be for a 3270 display device. It provides fast BMS screen definition and manipulation with powerful features like block moves and copies through simple use of a keyboard or mouse. It supports most standard BMS macro operands plus long data names and allows the construction of repeated groups of fields in a manner similar to the IBM Screen Definition Facility (SDF II).

BMS macro output is fully portable to mainframe CICS. Mapset painting and generation are supported for 3270 models 2 through 5.
