Hi Experts,

I am doing a project on integrating mainframes to java using CICS adapter. But I do not have a mainframe system to work with. Is there a way to use a emulator for CICS and use it to test it with the CICS adapter from a J2EE application. Please advice.

Thanks,
Vijay

Hi,
there is an IBM CICS for Windows, which is now called 'TXSeries for Multiplatforms'
Here is an overview from IBM containing links to main resources:
http://www-01.ibm.com/software/htp/cics/txseries/
There is a trial version available:
http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/downloads/ws/txseries/?S_CMP=rnav 

There is Microfocus' Studio Enterprise Edition, delivering both a CICS and IMS compatible
OLTP system for unit testing COBOL/CICS or COBOL/IMS applications:
http://www.microfocus.com/products/Studio/studioEE.asp
There is no free trial, afaik.

Finally, we have Rosebud Management Systems' Eden Server:

There is a 30-day trial available.
