Retrofitting the code means keeping the code in sync with respect to all the regions. Suppose, in your project you have something like Development, Staging, Qual and Production regions. You do some changes for your project in the development region. And this needs to be moved to Staging or Qual after some testing. In that case, you merge your changes with the source program of the respective region where it needs to be elevated. So, you pull your changes alone from Devl to Stag or Qual without any other project changes. Hope this helps.

Sorry to disagree... but,
You can find the exact definition of retrofitting at :
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Retrofit
or:
http://www.thefreedictionary.com/retrofit

Hello,

Maybe TS will qualify the originial question and we can provide more useful answers. . .

I suspect there might have been something a bit more specific. . .

PQ78973
2003/10 UQ81044 This PTF retrofits the SOAP functionality that has been introduced with VSE/ESA 2.7 to VSE/ESA 2.6.

Note: In order to use the SOAP functionality you must do the following steps:

* Make sure you are on the required PTF Level for CICS/TS:
o APAR PQ51395/PTF UQ57278
o APAR PQ60964/PTF UQ75840
o APAR PQ69381/PTF UQ75840
o APAR PQ73753/PTF UQ76951
o APAR PQ76617/PTF UQ82740
o APAR PQ80708/PTF UQ82639
* Define programs to CICS CSD: Run the DFHCSDUP job to define some CICS programs.


this abstract from an IBM page describes a ...RETROFIT....

logic path
vse 2.6 does not have SOAP functionality
vse 2.7 has SOAP functionality

the code to add the new functionality was written for the vse 2.7 environment

the added code was modified in order to be compatible with the vse 2.6 environment and .....

et voila' here is a sample of a ... RETROFIT ...

Hoping to have clarified the definition

regards

e.s

P.S.
to get the quote I searched google with "ptf retrofit"

It looks like You did not read carefully what we posted!

The process described by priya_shankar is not , REPEAT NOT, retrofitting, is the normal development cycle

WHETHER YOU LIKE IT OR NOT, MY EXPLANATION WAS VERY TECHNICAL, DESCRIBING WITH A SAMPLE A VERY EXACT PROCESS

When there is not an understanding of the definition or if people are just incorreect in their understanding about a definition, it does need clarification.

There can be no meaningful discussion about something technical when participants do not have a common understanding of the concept. There may be a group of people who have a belief but that does not make it true. . . . It is also not up to a vote to see "which it is".
