Linear data sets are more efficient because they do not contain the VSAM control interval information that an ESDS does. Additionally, an LDS has control intervals with a fixed length of 4,096 bytes.

Hi,

I think collectionID is the name given to group of packages.

if you want to refer one package seperately u have to refer with collectionID along with the package name.

If I miss some thing please let me know.
