Mainframe actions are exposed in the Mainframe Automation framework in Test Modeller. The corresponding Git repository is available https://github.com/CuriositySoftwareIreland/TestModeller_MainframeAutomation . This uses Jagacy with Java as the underlying automation technology.

When the framework is imported into Test Modeller the actions below are available in the 'MainframeCommands' module. This provides an accelerator for automating common actions on Mainframe (3270) applications. This class can be extended to incorporate your own keywords and actions as necessary.

In order to use the library actions you need to firstly open a connection to the mainframe environment. To do this you can use the command 'Open Connection' with the parameter of the location of the application. E.g.
