      As compilers (COBOL and PL1) are now using integrated pre-compilers one can end up from 1 source with multiple DBRMs that will need to be bound in the same  physical DB2       We are migrating to C...OBOL 6.2 and Enterprise PL1 5.2 and our going to be using the integrated CICS and DB2 pre-compiler As in certain cases sources are compiled multiple times depending the addressing mode or type of execution environment one might end up with possible three different DBRMs origintaing from the same source. From and administrative level in Changeman one could create a logical environment in the physical DB2 (one for each type of DBRM) Unfortuantely ZMF doesn't support this. Right now this has been cicumvented through skeleton customisation, but this should be out of the box. Are there any othe customers that have encountered the same issue resulting in skeleton customisation     More

      Johan Jacob added new listing Merge and Reconcile in the ClientPack in ChangeMan ZMF/Mainframe
      Customers would like to have the ability to merge multiple version into 1 in the IDz enviroment when using the client pack     Customers doing the transition towards IDz would like to see Merge and ...Reconcile integrated in the Client Pack (at least into the IDz interface), giving the possibility to merge different package versions into 1 More

      Hi John, It the time I had the same question, unfortunately, due to the difference between ISPF and Windows this is not feasible When explained to me by R&D I followed their argument. HLLX should alw...ays support all environments in the same way. I'm using the dataLocked flag (set to Yes) and then set a message that the values are system determined and the user only has to hits enter or click finish/next This way the process will look the same in all environments and transition from ISFP to Client pack is very easy Best regards Johan More

      We whish an option in the settings like "Smart editor integration active for baseline browse".   We have been asked several time (by our developers) why a browse on a baseline member does not show up... with tooling in the editor. I can understand this because it propably is a quick way to see what's in a member. Same thing if you don't set up the "Smart Editor". Anyway we do want an option in the settings like "Smart editor integration active for baseline browse". Regards Peter More

      CMNEX019 gives will be called before/after checkout and before/after checkout. But when performin a "stage" of a non-SRC component the exit CMNEX019 is also called.   When a component is modified an...d saved, the exit is called and the checkin indicators are enabled. This is indepedent for a like-SRC component or a non like-SRC component. When a like-SRC component is "staged" (so no change took place) the exit is not called (obvious as no checkin took place) However when a non like-SRC is "staged" (so no change took place) the exit is called and the checkin indicators are enabled. To better differentiate CHECKOUT/CHECKIN/BUILD it would be nice to see an additional indicator in the exit eg. x19$sbld and x19$ebld (before and after build - aka stage) For a like-SRC this would be just before the kickoff of the file tailoring For a non like-SRC as it is performing today.  More
