About JCL applications

When the JCL application has been migrated from the mainframe to the PC, you maintain and develop the application as follows:

  1. Create a project comprising all the parts of the application, such as the COBOL source JCL files. This also involves specifying the appropriate project and build properties.
  2. Compile the COBOL programs.
  3. Configure an enterprise server to run the JCL application. This involves, among other things, setting up search paths to locate your application files, the system catalog and so on.
  4. Run the application in Enterprise Server and check that it is working correctly. Use the facilities for monitoring JCL applications within Enterprise Server, as necessary.
  5. Debug the application using Enterprise Developer.

File and database support is the same as for CICS applications.
