Dr Chgman's Training about XML services in ChangeMan ZMFTo actually start using the XML services, probably the biggest challenge is to become aware (and learn how to use) each of the available XML services.

This lesson starts with providing a functional overview of all available XML services, with an overview organised corresponding to the major ChangeMan ZMF concepts like administration, packages and components. Afterwards some special XML services (utilities and transfer facilities) are explained.


Lesson 2: Using XMLSERV for prototyping

Dr Chgman's Training about XML services in ChangeMan ZMFThis lesson teaches the use of XMLSERV, an  ISPF dialog that comes with ChangeMan ZMF and that can be used for XML prototyping.

The lesson also explains some deficiencies about XMLSERV, and explores some alternatives to XMLSERV.
