Mainframe testing is the process of testing COBOL code 
through JCLs and in turn which will use DB2 tables for 
fetching the data.
Mainframe testing also 
follows SDLC (Software development life cycle), in which 
the testing involves after the development phase. Once the 
code which involves the mainframe (Coding may be from 
COBOL, SAS ) coding is completed, the corresponding 
compilers will be set up. If it is a COBOL code, a JCL is 
required to compile and to execute the code.
Responsibilities:
The tester will be provided with the application (Cobol 
code and the corresponding JCLS). As the tester having 
his / her requirements in hand, he would have done with the 
test cases based on the business requirement. So he will 
prepare the test data to satisfy the business requirements 
and execute the Cobol module using the provided JCL.
If he meets the Expected result the test will be pass or 
fail if not. If the test is fail, probably he would raise 
a defect in the code and fix the same. The testing life 
cycle goes like this.
If the tester gives sign off from his end, it is ready to 
be promoted for User or into production.
