We have been been testing the IACS client on MACs as well as Windows
systems and I agree that the client is nice but one huge drawback for our
implementation is that one of our main macros written long ago to do
screen scraping from our IBMi application into a CICS mainframe
application no longer works and needed to be completely rewritten.
It's a very complicated script and was not able to be converted into the
new XML based scripting language.
We also found that the tabs function does not work well. I am sure that
IBM will work out the tabs issue soon enough ( if they have not already
done so)
The scripting macros is a big issue at least for us.
