One of the features that I like is that I can open up and move tabs outside the eclipse window to different screens in a multi-screen environment, and I'm able to expand it to see a larger amount of code than I could see on an ISPF screen. I also like the hyper links for datasets when looking at JCL that can be used to look at contents of files. View full review »

The most important features are the file editing and browsing features. They are essential to an application developer; those are functions they have to be able to do. Having some nice features related to those activities really helps them. Also, the debugging capabilities are important. Again, they are essential to application developers. View full review »

From a development point of view, we use it to log documentation and edit steps. The documentation is easy to read and our developers can add information into documents simultaneously. We are also using the Topaz Workbench Host Communications Interface with its data sets. View full review »

From a user perspective, the GUIs make it easier for people to see and interact with files on the mainframe. That's probably one of the most useful. It makes the mainframe a little bit easier to handle for new users. View full review »
