1) Production Support , resolving day to day production problems, could be a abend in prod or a user request.

2) Batch process ( Daily , weekly cycles) or Online application process ( CICS apps)

3) Two ways
a) uses option 3.13 (superc)
b) all programs are promoted or moved to prod using a staging applicataion
which would let you the difference between the verision in different Basic reqions Test, QA and Prod.

4) Sit back and catch up with your work or accept your failure to meet the deadline.

5) when your code in prod is not doing what it is supossed to do

6) Unit testing which include stress, impact and interaged testing would be done by the programmer and set it testing for the user to approve or sigin-off the code promotion to prod.

7) Code promotion would be done seperated group of people who maintain the staging appliation like endevor ( name of a staging apps)

8) Set up a meeting with your user either thru phone or face to face which ever works the best.

9) StartBr command in CICS.

I would like to recall my 6th question.
6) Impacet analysis is done by the requirment gathering group, to find out the impact of an enhancement to the existing system. After analysis they would come up with the impact anaylsis report with would have the application affected by the enhacement or change and assumed number of hours it would require to comeplete the enhancement or change. It all depends how big the requirement is.

If the dataset is a VSAM one then it will have either Index for KSDS or Alternate Index for ESDS or record key for RRDS using that you can identify.

15)how and where can we use bind


Bind is used for Packages as well as plans.

Whenever you made a change in the existing plan then you need to bind it again.

19) when gdg versions will change


Gdg versions will change only when the job is executed.

I have a ques for you, KKK:

What do you mean by a "version". The IBM definition of a "new" version of a GDG entry (or dataset) is an entry whose DSN is of the form X.Y.G0001V01 (or V02, V03, etc.).

A new GDG "ENTRY" of the GDG could be X.Y.G0002V00 or G0003V00, etc.

Which one are YOU referring to?

HI,

Use option 3.3 to copy file from PROD to test.

Quote:

Depend on your work. But if u worked in mainframe more that 6 MOnth then answer should be yes.


Hope this helps

Regards
Rupesh
