I am new to Endeavor , can any one help me out please

In Endeavor there are options ELEMENT and PROCESSOR GROUP in Display. When entered into Element option it is giving System, Subsystem, Type . What does they mean, Can any one explain with example.


What is meant by Version Control Tool?

Can any one just brief me the steps to make changes for a particular module and then send back it to production region through Endeavor.

HI,

It is a tool on Mainframe .We will save our modules using them. If any changes are made in our modules, updated module can be saved into them by incrementing the version. In this way we can keep track of all versions.

Rupesh

Hi pawan,
As u might agree in mainframes environment, multiple users are accessing the same resource and same set of programs, jobs, utlility, procs etc. elements to say broadly.
Now multifarious activities are carried out by onsite offshore, client side and also in some cases by other vendors handling a part of same application,
So there comes a need to monitor these changes

using a version control tool like endevor.
entire repository of elemnets is maintained and the change history is kept intact to facilitate retrofits, over rides, etc.

consider there is a element of
type cobol pgm for
sub system prod
system prod
[b]

Now if u want to make changes to this element pgm1
u need to retrieve the element using the foreground in to ur pds.
copy it to a production pds(deliverable pds) make changes and add/move the element to the test region ( step wise) and then retain the sign out by putting overide signout =y and signout to ur tso id.
[/b]
On compilation the version of that element incremnt by 1 and the previous version is over ridden by your changes,
for the guy making changes in the previous version to acces his change he can directly go to his version and find his changes.
Your chnages although comprises both of his changes last made and also the activity done by u.


Regards
saurabh
