HERCULES MAINFRAME EMULATOR ON THE PC… FOR TESTING AND DEVELOPMENT






Hercules is a computer emulator which allows software designed for IBM mainframe computers (System/370, System/390, and zSeries/System z) and for plug-compatible mainframes (such as Amdahl machines) to run on other types of computer hardware: notably on low-cost personal computers.

Hercules is an open source software implementation of the mainframe System/370 and ESA/390 architectures, in addition to the new 64-bit z/Architecture. Hercules runs under Linux, Windows (98, NT, 2000, and XP), Solaris, FreeBSD, and Mac OS X (10.3 and later).
