PRODUCT: ALCHEMIST 5.2.1

USERS AFFECTED:
All users.

PROBLEM(S) FIXED:
DF23134
Modify Export Utilities to allow for batch unload of entities.

Changes to the ZCEZCEXT utility:
SELECTVER=Cn or CURRENTn where n is 1-9
Only the last n number of entities are extracted.

New DDNAME LIST:
The sequential data-set's name where ZCEZCEXT writes
entity version information to be used by ZCEXPORT in BATCH
mode to unload entity source. The dataset must be
DSORG=PS,DCB=(RECFM=F,LRECL=144)

Changes to the ZCEXPORT utility:
BATCH=(Y)ES or (N)O
The added parameter will unload those entities specified
in the SYSUT1 input dataset that was created by ZCEZCEXT.

New DDNAME SYSUT1:
The sequential input file created by ZCEZCEXT.

When BATCH=YES then SYSUT2 must point to a PDS dataset.

In this example, ZCEXPORT outputs the entities to a PDS
dataset.
//ZCEXPORT EXEC PGM=ZCEXPORT,
// PARM='OENAME=ALCOEN,ZONE=TEST,TYPE=MACRO,BATCH=YES'
//STEPLIB DD DISP=SHR,DSNAME=prefix.SSALLINK
//SYSUT1 DD DISP=SHR,DSNAME=prefix.file.from.ZCEZCEXT
//SYSUT2 DD DISP=SHR,DSNAME=prefix.ZCEXPORT

TYPE/RESTART:
Run the utilities with new JCL.

This ptf will ensure that Clip 7 is invoked when either screen is used to browse a listing. Clip 7 can provide the facility to browse listings stored on normal PDS datasets rather than the SCF database. Since not all clients will want this facility, a new parm has been added to the OE parm set. If the faclity is wanted, code the parm as: NOSCF=Y The default is "NOSCF=N" which means that SCF will be used as per normal procedure that exists before this ptf is applied. Application of this ptf will not introduce any changes to listing support if "NOSCF=Y" is not coded. As can be seen from the PTF below, this is more complex than the average ptf. Additional documentation is provided with this ptf and should be obtained from Cybermation Product Support Services if you intend to implement the SCF work around. ======== WARNING: ======== If you intend to use this facility rather than just applying the ptf, ensure that you have a copy of the additional documentation and read it first so that you have all the details.

This sequence turned out to be in contradiction with the sequence of CTENTs in JES2 1.4 / DJC 3.9 HASPIRDA module when OA08145 APAR (from IBM) is applied. These affects only 3 last CTENTs: JES2 1.7 / DJC 3.A: ..., NITC, RECY, ESP JES2 1.4 / DJC 3.9 / APAR OA08145: ..., ESP, NITC, RECY The different order prevents these JES2 versions to correctly share the same checkpoint. This usermod solves the problem by changing order of CTENTs in JES2 1.7 / DJC 3.A to the same order as in the second JES2. TYPE/RESTART: Cold start of JES2 will always correctly initialize a checkpoint. It is required if checkpoint was initialized by JES2 with SDJ3A0A usermod (DJC 3.A). If checkpoint was initialized by JES2 1.4 + OA08145 APAR + DJC 3.9 then warm start will work correctly. */ None
