Clerity Solutions has introduced Clerity Map Editor, an application development tool that provides a graphical user interface (GUI) environment for the design, creation, and maintenance of former mainframe-based 3270 green screens on open systems.
The company said that the new offering delivers UniKix mainframe rehosting software suite to run CICS, IMS, IDMS, Adabas/Natural and other legacy assets on flexible, distributed servers.
According to Clerity Solutions, the new tool offers a way to build, edit and maintain CICS Basic Mapping Support (BMS) Maps for rehosted mainframe workloads running in UniKix software environments.
With Clerity Map Editor, standalone BMS files and BMS files associated with Cobol copybooks can be displayed, modified and generated on any Windows, Unix or Linux-based system supporting a Java Runtime Environment 6.0 or greater.
Shwetank Srivastava, vice president of product development and services at Clerity, said: “Clerity Map Editor provides an excellent alternative to preserve interfaces and avoid end-user retraining post migration. With its straightforward GUI, mainframe or non-mainframe personnel can quickly leverage this tool to help meet their migration objectives.”
