XML Training for ChangeMan ZMF

Dr Chgman's Training about XML services in ChangeMan ZMFChangeMan ZMF 5.3.x (available since 2003) was the first release delivered with a very rich set of functions that allows you to perform many (though not all) tasks in ChangeMan ZMF without using ChangeMan ZMF's ISPF client (to communicate with the ChangeMan ZMF server, aka the CMN started task). This set of functions is commonly referred to as "ChangeMan ZMF's XML services" (for short: the "XML services").


Issues in nearly any ChangeMan ZMF environment

Dr Chgman's - Issues in nearly any ChangeMan ZMF environmentWe've been providing consulting services about ChangeMan ZMF (CMN/ZMF) for over 2 decades now. It keeps being fun to see how each CMN/ZMF customer always has some type of unique requirements, special customizations, etc. Not to speak about all the challenges that come with each release upgrade of CMN/ZMF (I started on release 3.2.1b in 1990, recently I was involved in an upgrade to the latest and greatest 7.1.x release).


User defined relationships

Create a SCMBeans solution to make ChangeMan ZMF create and maintain a Bill Of Material for selected (like source) library types, using a technique that was first introduced in AbitMORE SCM for IDMS/ADSO.

This Bill Of Material can then be used:


IT Auditors

IT auditors should take advantage of all sorts of information (events, rules, etc) contained by ChangeMan ZMF (its control files). However it is not obvious to do so for occasional ChangeMan ZMF users (such as the IT auditors). That is why they often depend on the ChangeMan ZMF administrators to get access to the information they are looking for.


Browse a component in any CMN/ZMF library

ChangeMan ZMF manages various types of datasets, likes staging libraries, promotion-, production- and baseline liraries, etc. Wouldn't it be great to have some type of browser to just browse (or view) any of these datasets from within a single ISPF panel? Maybe also some related datasets like Xnode DSNs, CMN100 reports, etc.?
