Hello Shakti,

there are 2 aspects to it:

The version controlling is done at 2 level:

1) At programmer level:

When you make any changes to your programs, you use tools like ELIPSE, CHANGEMAN, LIMA etc.

So if at all any production program is to be modified, it is staged to the staging library, and then depending on the tool, it is either brought to individual library for modifications or it is modified in the staging library (Packages in case of Changeman)

2) At the System level:
You have modified a CICS_DB2 program, now you want your system to identify this modified program,

For this to happen, you will have to compile the program and NEWCOPY it, so that it's load libraries are accessible to the system (the current version of the load libs are overridden by the new ones)

This NEWCOPY will tell the CICS that it needs to pick up the latest load libs from the library.

Hope this helps.

Regards

Mayuresh Tendulkar
