Greetings all....

I would like to know if the is an application that can be used to compare library of scource code against another....?

e.g compare your test environment to your production environment!!!!!!

the idea is for me to see if they are both in sync and if not then what is the actual difference!!!! icon_rolleyes.gif icon_rolleyes.gif icon_rolleyes.gif

any help would be appreciated

never heard of a customer who ever felt the need to compare the sources from two different environment...

it is reasonable to infer that the will most often differ ....


a whole different show it is when doing regression testing...
there are specific tools to collect data from the production environment
and run comparisons with the result of the test environment to see if
the modifications introduced errors or loss of functionality

regards

Thank you for the Reply....

My Client is looking at getting a tool like INDEVOR, now they need to be convinced that their development(test) environment in tso is not in-sink with their tso production environment..... I need something that can be able to compare these environments... I am not too sure how thou but I've head of a process of taking the two libraries (test and production) to one shared library and test them with SUPERC there.... but somehow am not convinced this is the ideal route!!!!! icon_rolleyes.gif icon_rolleyes.gif icon_rolleyes.gif

Again - SUPERC is great for PDS comparison. This is from a very long experience. Use SUPERC's parameters and statements to refine your comparison.

As suggested, use SUPERCE. Show the summary to your client (which shows no of lines in old & new, no of insertions and deleteions etc...). That itself says your code is not insync across regions.

If there are shared dasd...
verify with the support group how to access them..

but there will certainly be security related problems

if the dataset can be easily identified and grouped

a dfdss dump and a restore with the rename option would be
the way to go

and..
I would work on copies of the test datasets too
same process as above
