Hi siva,

It is better to conduct a survey about these things among forum members so that we should know atleast some of the tools. It is clear that we dont know all of them. Hundreds of tools are available for Mainframe testing. It is advisable that u must learn the tool that is used in u r organization. It is enough.

Bye,
Reddy.
