A Development & Management Tool for z/OS, z/Linux & z/VM
zDMT is a legacy–friendly development and management tool for z/OS applications that works with existing host-based processes and
which increases efficiency by employing the latest graphical user interface standards.
The emphasis in zDMT is on powerful features that are easy to use and that just make sense to z/OS developers —
and which don't require shops to completely revamp their processes to benefit.
zDMT uses the Microsoft Office Fluent Interface® standards to provide a modern PC editing environment with copy,
cut and paste, syntax highlighting, find and replace, and PC–style editing conventions that will be familiar to developers.
The zDMT editor features syntax highlighting. zDMT also boasts an XEDIT–like command prefix feature, which allows developers to type
a subset of XEDIT commands over line numbers to perform editing functions.
Remote host files are automatically downloaded when opened and automatically uploaded when saved.
Developers can compile or build at the click of button. Errors displayed in output can be double clicked to open the source file at the offending line.
Host file views, client views, and projects are supported.
