Discontinued support

Changing technologies as well as evolution in our customers systems, drives the need for Axway to modify or discontinue support for some features. The following list summarizes deprecated functionality for Transfer CFT 3.3.2.


  • API CICS [z/OS]
  • VFM


  • Composer for Transfer CFT
  • Transfer CFT Navigator

Networks and protocols

  • Networks: LU62, SNA, DSA, X.25, and DNA
  • Protocol: ETEBAC


Transfer CFT z/OS

Transfer CFT z/OS no longer uses the SAS/C compiler (as of version 3.1.3). This results in the removal of interfaces specifically used by the SAS/C objects, such as the USERAPI module. Therefore, Transfer CFT API access is now done via a call to the DLL. Consequently, this constraint requires a slight modification to the source code; for example, you must use a Language Environment (LE) conforming Assembler.

To assist users in understanding and implementing, EXIT and API samples in Assembler, C, and COBOL are delivered with Transfer CFT version 2.7.x and higher.

Deprecated in z/OS 

The communication mailbox (MBX) is deprecated as of Transfer CFT 3.3.2.
