That's wrong, I think! For sure FRAME entries can be developped /
maintained on mainframe. It's not very comfortable, but... Necessary is a
graphics terminal or a graphics emulation and the definition of a graphic
terminal in VTAM. AND, for sure: you must have SAS/AF on mainframe! Maybe
that is not the case at your installation. Most sites which develop AF
applications do that on a cheap workstation. That's less expensive and
more comfortable. For the compiled application you don't need to have AF
to run it, but you need it for the compile.
So what you mentionen might be the right way. If you have SAS/AF on
mainframe, you simply could/should compile the applications under V8/9.
If you only have it on PC, compile them there, before you CPORT them
again. With that evrything should work.
