I am working on mimicking 3270 mainframe interaction in to java using IMS MFS .
         DEV   TYPE=(3270,2),FEAT=IGNORE,SYSMSG=ERRMSG1,               C00004   
               PFK=(PFKEY,'01','02','03','04','05','06','07','08',     C00005   
               '09','10','11','12','13','14','15','16','17','18',      C00006   
               '19','20','21','22','23','24')                           00007   

The above snippet is a mfs lib entry for mimicking the PFKey events like PF1, PF2,... PF24.
Do we have some thing in MFS to mimic the 'Enter' event as well?
The requirement is as follows.
During normal flow which involves updation of the fields and calling javax.resource.cci.Interaction.execute() method of IMS JCA works fine and I am able to move from one screen to another screen.
But when there is no field to populate and has to just create an 'Enter' event. On calling the execute() method again it is rerouting the control to interaction Initiation screen instead of going as per the flow in 3270 session.

Could any one help me on this issue..

In the MID Message Input Descriptor, there may be a default value defined for the PFKEY field. If this default matches one of the PFKEY entries in the DEV entry, then you could map "ENTER" as that default PFKEY.
