SYSD/ATP provides access to CA-Panvalet libraries from SYSD

The SYSD/ATP (Access to Panvalet) optional interface gives you the ability to access and update CA-Panvalet libraries from the powerful SYSD ISPF/PDF-like editor.

Why use SYSD/ATP?

  • CA-Panvalet libraries and partitioned data sets (PDS) can be mixed for accessing and copying. This support for multiple libraries increases your flexibility and saves time by allowing you to easily convert from CA-Panvalet libraries to PDS and vice versa.
  • All PDS, sequential data sets, and CA-Panvalet libraries are available for browsing and editing under the same set of menus, eliminating the need for separate CA-Panvalet menus.
  • CA-Panvalet security and auditing features remain intact. Your organization will experience savings by giving users the ability to browse and update members under the resource-efficient CICS address space while still maintaining full audit control.
  • Library directory lists display comments and member information and allow you to easily select members for editing. Comments can be directly updated while editing a member.
  • An ATP comments user-exit provides support for ISPF/PDF-like statistics. Exit from an edit session can generate an automatic update to the CA-Panvalet status comment and eliminate duplication of efforts.
  • The SAVE and CREATE commands allow you to merge the current edit file into the source data set or into an entirely new member.
  • If you are familiar with the ISPF/PDF or SYSD editor, the SYSD/ATP option eliminates retraining. Systems programmers and others who work with PDF can take advantage of CA-Panvalet without having to learn a new system.
