Xmit Manager is a Windows based tool that allows for the manipulation of
IBM Mainframe created Xmit format files. With Xmit Manager you can open
Xmit files and view or extract the data within them, whether that is
binary or text based. Xmit files with Partitioned datasets or Sequential
datatsets content can be dealt with similarly through the Graphical
Version 3 has given XmitManager a face lift. Some bugs
were corrected (including the truncated end of file for some members
extracted). Most importantly, the FTP remote support has been removed.
This caused a lot of problems for some users so I removed it and focused
the product back on decoding xmit files rather being a 'jack of all
trades'. You can still download v21 with this functionality if you wish,
but I wouldn't recommend it.
Ftp2Jes is a windows based application that provides a GUI around the FTP
protocol that supports simple access to JES2 on IBM OS390 and zOS based
operating systems. This FTP support allows Batch jobs to be submitted to
JES2 and the output to be retrieved through an FTP session between the IBM
host and your PC. Ftp2Jes enhances this functionality to provide a useful
tool for using this functionality.
Ftp2Jes is not in anyway trying to replace logging onto
a system and working with TSO and SDSF, but it does provide an alternative
in certain situations.
