Hi I got this one from Changeman manual. Might help.

Complex - The parent for two or more participating change packages that have interdependent changes to software or operational procedures. To create a super or complex package, you provide only this first panel of control and general information, a package description, and a list of participating packages. Remote sites and installation dates are set in each participating package. No stagin libraries are allocated to super or complex packages.

There are no processing difference between super and complex change packages.

Super - The parent for two or more participating change packages that have interdependent changes to software or operational procedures. To create a super or complex package, you provide only this first panel of control and general information, a package description, and a list of participating packages. Remote sites and installation dates are set in each participating package. No staging libraries are allocated to super or complex packages.

There are no processing difference between super and complex change packages.

Participating - The change package is related to one or more other participating change packages which are listed under the same super or complex package. SYSLIB statements in build process jobs include staging libraries from other participating packages under the same super or complex package.

Complex Package


A complex change package is the 'parent' for two or more change packages that have interdependent changes to software and/or
operational procedures. It serves as a coordination mechanism
for interdependent changes and is not meant to be installed.
A complex package can contain
One or more participating packages
Change in one package is used by other packages.
eg. Copybook change is required by other programs in another package.
Does not contain components.

SUPER PACKAGE

A super change package is the 'parent' for change packages that contain major changes to several applications. The super change package serves as a coordination mechanism for high impact changes in a data processing environment and is not meant for installation.
