Is there any possibility of reading a screen? I have to read all details on the screen and write it onto a file. For example, I need to read the initial mainframe screen itself, then how do I do it?

We use a product from BMC called OSPI (Open Systems Protocol Interface) that lets us do exactly what you're asking. Do you have a similar product available?

We use emulator's "print screen to file" command from an emulator macro.

Do you need to do this on the mainframe in some mainframe application code or do you need to do this on the desktop?

I have probably the same questions. There is an application with many ISPF panels. To test them you should manually pass all posible paths. Is it possible to automate it from mainframe side? Something which will enter options to get next panel and all path then...

ps: I already saw programs which do that from PC side. Interested in mainframe solution...

Hello,

There are products that provide this for cics, but i'm not aware of the same for tso/ispf.

What i have seen done is to "record" a session using the built-in recording feature of your 3270-emulator (i believe most have this - everything i've used has) and then play the recording back to do what you want.

The BMC OSPI tool works for ANY 3270 terminal session (TSO, ISPF, CICS, Netview).
