Compuware Topaz Workbench Room for Improvement

At this time I do not know of additional improvements from my perspective.  Over the last year, Compuware has made major improvements to the JES Explorer, which used to be the biggest negative.

There are some tools in ISPF that are not available outside of ISPF right now, things the programmers may need to look at. They still have to go to the green screen for a few things.  Since we have the free version of Topaz, we do not have access to the new 3270 emulator that can handle this situation in Eclipse. 

We have noticed that Topaz supported Eclipse environments are rather old.  It would be nice if Topaz were compatible with the more current Eclipse releases.  The current version of Eclipse supported by Topaz is Photon.
