CHANGE MAN

 
 Changeman is used in development enviroment, for easy version controlling of components  
 


 What will it do for me?

  Allow a developer to capture a copy of the current production code (base version)

  Provide a developer with different environments in which code can be tested

  Allow a developer via the approval process to install the edited code into production

 
What team member will do when he/she given a task?

 1. Create a package 

 2. CHECK OUT components from production/baseline (if that program already
    exists) or STAGE a component (program/jcl/proc/dbb ....) after 
    developed the component in local directory into pakcage.

 3. Edit/delete the components and sumit for compilation 

 4. For testing he can PROMOTE that package to testing region 


STEP 1 -- CREATING PACKAGE
FOllowing screen is the CHANGE MAN mainscreen



Type 1 at option prompt, you will get following screen


 



 Type 1 at OPTION prompt, you will be prompted with following screen


  


 press ENTER,
 It will show two screen, there you need to enter the details of package (usaually audit program
 details). then it will careate the package name using APPLICATION type that you provided.

 In our case it is - SRK1002833  (pakcage number)


STEP 2 -- CHECK OUT (coping from baseline/production)
Changeman Mainscreen




Type 1 at option prompt, you will get following screen


 



type 5 at OPTION prompt, you will prompted with the following screen

next JCL WILL COME , NEXT JOB WILL BE SUBMITTED FOR COMPILATION OF COMPONENT
STEP 4 - EDIT COMPONENTS IN CHANGE MAN
TYPE 'E' TO EDIT , 'B' TO BROWSE the component , infront of the components after editing , if you press f3 2 times, and press enter it will submit the job for compilation
STEP 5 - PROMOTION
After compiled the components in the change man , we need to promote it to respective region Before doing this, you should know the region, in which you want to test (region number you should know, usaully it is a number between 1 to 99) Type C;3 in ispf menu you will get following screen,
