Hi,

I have recently moved to a new project and here most of the work like coding, compiling,job submission is done from roscoe. I have these things from tso/ispf using various applications like change man. How does roscoe compare with tso/ispf? is it batch/online/or a time sharing as in tso?

TIA!PAV

Hello,

ROSCOE provides many of the same things that ISPF does. A big difference is that you do those things differently.

People who learn ROSCOE first usually like it better than TSO. People who learn TSO first usually like TSO better than ROSCOE (the people that were first unix programmers and then had to learn mainframe hate both icon_smile.gif ). So far i've not found any "real" work i couldn't do in either - it is just that the tools are different. As you've found out - some sites standardize on one, some sites on the other. Most ROSCOE sites will also have their own tools that interface with Librarian.

ROSCOE (imho) is primarily for application developers. I do not know any system programmeers who do their entire job from within ROSCOE (i know quite a few who ONLY use tso/ispf - they believe the tso/ispf environment is more suited to that work). Every MVS, OS/390, z_OS etc., environment has tso/ispf - not all have ROSCOE.

If you have any specific questions, i'll be happy to try and answer.
