Peter (and Steve), I can see that you are using a very rudimentary form of recording and playback of scripts for testing. May I take this opportunity to suggest that if you are interested in using automated testing for AS/400's, and browser and GUI applications, you visit our website to investigate how you can not only automate the recording and playback, you can also automate the verification of the test results. TestBench will also assist unit and system testing including tracking of data queues and parameters that are passed, as well as showing the database updates.

I have written scripts to automate repetitive programming tasks (like making all comments in a program white or deleting all spool files for a set of jobs chosen from the WrkSbmJob list) and for testing.
