Java Confidence Was RE: cobol-programming

Hi Suzie,
Someday, you and I will have a conversation and we'll be laughing at these 
days. Those will be the good new days.

Another thing I had to do was to set the window in JAWS, otherwise the time 
continually got reported. I hate to say this, but I think I wish I could go 
back to those days when I really knew what I was doing. I am getting the hang 
of this Java stuff, however, I can't say it is fun.

Hi,
No. The mainframe is just a terminal window. There are no real controls that 
get communicated to JAWS. My memory of the scripts I saw ages ago tells me that 
they are totally based on screen coordinates. I remember from my mainframe days 
that you would use the tab key to go from field to field, and it stopped on 
some stuff at the top of the window like a command line, and another field. The 
next tab stop was the first line number of the code part of the window. The 
next was column 7, where all comments must start in Cobol. Then, from there to 
the bottom of the screen, you would have tab stops at the beginnings of lines 
and the comment areas. Instead of reading the line numbers as you moved down 
through lines of code, the scripts figured out where column 7 was and read from 
there to the right. The beginnings of the fields had ==> by default, so the 
scripts could do some invisible cursor magic and find that stuff. They could 
also grab the row and column info from the status line at the bottom of the 
window to make sure they knew what to read.

Hi: When you work on a terminal or emulator using something like COBOL and 
CICS do you know if there is a DOM on the Terminal machine. In other words, 
I might have my pc running some piece of software to make it attachable as a 
3270 to a mainframe. I guess that would be the emulator software. Then there 
is the software to link the emulator, my home computer, to the mainframe. On 
my home computer running as the 3270 terminal would there be a DOM I could 
script to make it more accessible?
I am wondering if I could wire up my home computer to a MainFrame and script 
the mashup somehow using WindowEyes to be accessible and fast to use.

Hi,
Yes, but it matters which terminal emulator you are using, and if you can 
get your hands on a set of scripts that help you work with the environment, 
that would even be better. There used to be someone named Glen Sepke who had 
an excellent set of scripts that work with those environments. The biggest 
thing, though is the environment. The scripts do make you much more 
efficient. Once yyou get there, Cobol is all text.

Hello,

Is it possible to do programming in a IBM mainframe environment using
jaws12? The language is cobol.
