That depends on what do you want to do and your interpretation of "unit-testing" ? Please elaborate your question a bit more.

You can edit your input files to enter proper input data using FILE-AID.
you can create your layouts using FILE-AID.
You can enter required data into DB2 tables using FILE AID for DB2.
Overalll you can use FILEAID for creating test data in the unit testing process.

and then submit your your batch job / kick off your CICS job from CICS region.
see the output result in FILE-AID.

Unit test exercise a small piece of functionality within a system. Typically, the test runs individual functions against known inputs, with the results verified against known results. Unit test does not just test for successful outputs; they can also test for appropriate errors and boundary conditions. Since unit tests test the individual units of a system, you can ensure that the unit implements the correct functionality and encapsulates the appropriate error handling. You can use unit test to document the correct usage of each unit.
most technologies are using these type of testing for mainframes.
A suite of tests is provided into fine-grained individual tests to provide the excellent performance. You can use automated tools which are designed for Mainframe testing. These tools allow you to use the power and ease-of-use of unit testing at the power of visual basic at the fraction of the cost of automated testing tools. Mainframe unit testing toolkit is designed to make sure your mainframe testing accurate.

You do realize that you have replied to a topic that has been quietly inactive for more than a year and a half. . .

You should also realize that your reply has NOTHING to do with the question asked. . . :(
