Dears : I expected to be able to develop, test and run mainframe programs (COBOL/CICS/DB2/VSAM/JCL) in PC platform (intel core i7//64 bit/1.60 GHZ/4 MB ram) under Windows 7. Per my research Micro Focus Mainframe Enterprise Express might work fine .
I have not experience with mainframes' emulator working on personal computers
Please, if anybody can help me, I would like to get any input about the following:
Question 1) Is it the unified environment for mainframe development on personal computers?
Question 2) Where can I buy this product? Some one knows any vendors?
Question 3) Is there any other product/compiler/emulator that anyone can recommends to do the job in PC under windows 7?
THANKS so much in advance for your time and help.
