Hi Mac, do we have some kind of a mainframe simulator available with these CD's where in we can run some programs for practice?

And do we have any sales location in Pune where we purchase.

Thanks.

Yes, we have some simulators in the CD pack, but you need to buy the OS License from IBM to compile/run the programs in your PC. If you cant afford the z/OS, you can try some old versions of MVS/Linux. But the trial version of Microfocus simulator will help you to practice the programs without any license.

No, we don't sell the CD Pack thru any shops, you have to order online.

The concept of our product is not to simulate the real time system as simulators are available free of cost everywhere.

The actual purpose is to improve your mainframe skills.

If your knowledge on mainframe technologies is 80-100% or 0-20%, you will find our CDs useless. At 80-100% you have nothing to learn from the resources and at 0-20%, you can only learn the basics from a training institute.

Why don't you try the DEMOs at:

COBOL DEMO

Hi Mac,

VISION Mainframe Simulator
-- VISION Mainframe Simulator Full Version - An easy to use mainframe workbench simulator with sample programs.

Hercules Mainframe PC Emulator
-- Hercules Mainframe Emulator for Windows with Installation manuals and all required software Add-Ons (not the OS!)

I was curios to know what would these simulators do on my PC (run programs or jobs) if i use a Windows OS or Linux OS?

And is there a link from wherein i could download the free version of MVS/Linux?

Hope i not bothering you too much. Just wanted to make sure I am buying the right thing for myself.

Thank you.

it will run any operating system designe for IBM MF architecture...
OS/360, all the MVS flavors 24/31/64 bits up to zOS

where the guest supports it there is full TCP/IP connectivity

hi all,

i jus went through the new ver 6 from ibmmainframes .... its a must have for all of us ....

i've went through the 1-2 cd's ... its a much needed quick refresher on the basic mainframes topics ... screenshots were lively .... flow charts were good ... this is much better than the 5 ver we have in library .. this also has some products which i'm yet to try ...

the second cd is more a technical stuff with ebooks & tutorials ... by the first glance i loved it ...

guys keep the good work going!

Yes, you can run the programs, but the OS is not included in the CD Pack.

You may need to download a free MVS OS like Linux/390, MVS 3.8, VM/370, DOS/VS(try torrents) or you can buy an Operating systems like z/OS, OS/390, MVS/ESA, z/VSE, z/VM from IBM icon_smile.gif
