I have to do some transactions in CICS region and check for a date field whether it is current date or not. I have to do a huge number of transactions in different CICS regions. Can we develop a tool which will automatically do all the transactions and give me the snap shots of the scrrens after the transaction is done so that it can be worked on to check the requjired field. icon_rolleyes.gif

You probably can devlop one, but such tools already exist.

We use BMC Mainview AutoOPERATOR OSPI (Open Systems Protocol Interface) to do exactly what you want.

Hi Superk,
probably you did not get want i wanted to say. Let me mention it very clearly.

I have 50 regions.
I have to do one trasaction say 'abc' in each of these regions.
Now for each transaction in each region, i have to check a date field on the screen that appears after the transaction is fired.
This i have to do for all the regions and make a note of (or say copy the details) where i find date as not today's.

Now in this process, I have to go to each region manually and do the transaction, and check the date and come out.
Now can this be done by a tool which will give me the region name and the copied text or screen shot of the screen that appears after the transaction is fired.
Please help me in this.

Without paying BMC some moneyyou will not get access to OPSI and even if you paid them, I doubt you will ever see the source code.
Did you understood what ofer71 wrote? Please reply back with a yes or no.

I was talking about 3270 emulator; In my case, we use IBM's Personal Communication (aka PCOM), which comes with extensive macro language.

In my emulator, we can change the "print" option to print into a file - instead to printer. That's how we do it.

You will have to check your emuulator to see if it is possible.

Hello,

Yes, many 3270 emulators will "print" the screen into a file on the PC.
