CICS/MAPR II is a CICS map development product that allows screens to be designed online in CICS using an intuitive full-screen editor. Full length COBOL, PL/I, and Assembler language field names and Basic Mapping Support (BMS) field attributes can be added on the Field Definition screen. Horizontal, vertical, and/or two-dimensional arrays can be defined on the Array Definition screen.
Other online CICS/MAPR II facilities include a Test function for individual maps and a Demo System for a series of related maps that allows programmers to test, prototype, and demonstrate their maps online before assembling them. A batch job is used to generate BMS source macros and COBOL, PL/I or Assembler copybooks for your maps. Another batch job can be used to convert BMS source macros from products such as SDF, SDF-II, MAPGEN, and BMS/GT to our CICS/MAPR II VSAM file.
