z/Explorer provides fast, easy access to mainframe data, directly from Eclipse. It is a vital tool for anyone involved in building or supporting mainframe applications using the Eclipse integrated development environment (IDE) and it offers the added benefit of 3270 terminal emulation at no additional cost.
Direct access to the JES spool from z/Explorer lets you quickly execute key tasks that are part of the application development process, such as application compilations and test jobs. The 3270 Access view allows you to log into 3270 applications from your Eclipse interface and can replace costly specialist terminal emulators.
z/Explorer is an integral part of Macro 4's Eclipse framework, M4Workbench, and is also compatible with other Eclipse frameworks.
