Build #240 continues the focus on development of CICS Web Services and related Client Interfaces. Improvements include support for messages that return several records, improving the New/Logic/Web Service dialog to handle related tables easily, support for VSAM web services, and optionally handling Add and Delete functions.
Build 16.1 introduces integrated Client App development. This video shows the process. The statistics of program JSPG2 are remarkable: From a 17 line SQL definition, MANASYS generated 2500 lines of COBOL, 320 lines of JSON, and 854 lines of C#, all of which compiled and worked correctly first time.
No other software offers comparable productivity ratios, nor offers integrated development of mainframe web services and client apps.
