The Raincode CICS emulator for Microsoft .NET

Raincode CICS® is an emulator for .NET and Azure platforms. It is the ideal companion for the Raincode COBOL compiler and the Raincode PL/I compiler.

Raincode CICS isn’t another way to run your CICS® applications on a cheaper but equally inflexible platform. It allows you to evolve to a more agile, more versatile system. In addition to your existing COBOL and PL/I applications, CICS also allows you to develop new transactions in C# or VB.NET.

Raincode CICS is not the end of the story, it’s a step towards a more agile and integrated future.

  • Generated thread-safe code for .NET 4.5.1 and beyond in 32 or 64-bit mode, with a mainframe-compatible memory layout representation

  • Visual Studio plugin (Debugger, compiler configuration, color coding and project management)

  • Seamless integration with Raincode’s PL/I and COBOL compilers as well as with C# and VB.NET code

  • Azure-ready

  • Populate a repository for statistics and portfolio analysis tasks

  • EBCDIC support

  • Support for advanced assembler constructs, including self-modifying code

  • Comprehensive coverage of the macros
