1. I don't have a idea about tanvalet

2. The client will send a requirement Document about what are the changes they need from the Existing program.

PM will assign the program to all members and , he/she will mention the complexity for the programs.

you can retrieve the programs from the production to your test region.
make changes and test it move it back to production.

3. This depends on your project and the client ( for us we have 7 regions)

4. Region is nothing but a separate CICS Area where the data entered are displayed will be for the specific region.

5. the system will ask you the user name and password

username like : kO42TTK

Password : chnchn

6. Blank

7. The client will give the UserID and password by the system department

8. Its nothing but maintainig our work documents

Design --- We have to maintain the Design documents and test documents
in some tool
Coding --- can be any PDS.

Hope this helps , i too tried hard get the answers for this Questions when i am searching for the job.But I can't.

Hi Vikas,

1. Panvalet is a version control tool for IBM developed by CA.

- Client will send enhancement requirements called Ticket.
- We analyse existing program and decide where to add new code
- perform impact analysys
- Copy current session of production region into TestRegion ( Generally we use Panels to do this panels are provided by client). or use 3.4 and C to copy.

- make changes in test region and test it.
- send turnover document with session and program details
- Someone else will move the program to production after user testing

3. Generally we use Test and Production regions. But sometimes we use special regions for user training,testing and development.

4. Region is one portion of mainframe system. Every region provides a different environment.

5. We use one client SW like Hamming Bird, Extra Personal Client... it will ask for user id and password then enter them.

6. Nothing will appear just cursor moves right side

7. One administrator will be there at onsite. After Client Interaction he will assign user id and password ( mailed to you).

8. Panvalet is version control tool developed by CA.

U can get overview of panvalet by clicking here http://www.state.sd.us/standards/Section%206-9.htm

* When you are going to start learning Mainframes?
