IBM File Manager Plug-in for Eclipse provides easy access through a graphical user interface (GUI) on the workstation to File Manager for z/OS. The GUI provides a set of tools for manipulating and browsing data stored in various z/OS resources including data sets, UNIX System Services files, WebSphere MQ queues, and DB2 databases. The following usage scenarios are supported:

  • Creation, modification, and updating of File Manager templates:
    • Create templates from COBOL, PL/I, and HLASM copybooks
    • Create dynamic templates on the fly if you do not have a copybook to describe your data
  • Manipulation and browsing of data using the File Manager editor. The editor provides three different views of data:
    • Character display (text-based representation of data)
    • Formatted/Table display using a template
    • Single display using a template (focused on the display of fields defined in a single record).
  • Use of wizards to access utility functions to do the following:
    • Allocate, delete, and rename data sets
    • Copy, compare, and create data in resources, including z/OS data sets, WebSphere Message Queues and UNIX System Services files
    • View load modules

Here is a screenshot of the File Manager GUI plug-in in action:
