BMS/GT is a software tool for designing BMS maps for CICS applications. It improves programmer productivity, increases application efficiency, and creates user-friendly help displays.

to define a map we can use NMDS,BMS OR SDF
NMDS:means native modes data stream ,we can create maps by using this but this will not support format independence and device independence .
BMS:means basic mapping support ,by using this we can create maps which supports format indepedece as well as device independece.
SDF:means screen defintion facility. by using SDF we can define maps which supports device as well as format independence.
BMS is more useful than NMDS.
WE can create maps using SDF it is like a tool to create maps ther is no need to write the macros like in BMS.
just we need to specify the field names & lengths.

for ur first question
u need to use DFHBMSCA
this should be include in your COBOL program as COPY DFHBMSCA
it holds the values of the field attributes.
by passing appropriate values to the fields you can set /reset the fields dynamically.
OR
coding in the SEND MAP command as ERASEAUP which will erase the unportected fields in the map

hi,
we can create the maps through sdf(Screen Definition Facility). This is one way of creating the maps without using dfhmacro. This is like a menu driven.
