Let's suppose we have a cobol program already referenced in RAA database and this program is changed on mainframe .. The question is: which is the best way to 'update' the informations related to this program ?
I can imagine 2 alternatives (I'm referring to RAA v6 for multiplatform)
1) To substitute the new source version into the containing windows directory and maually perform a "Collect Inventory" action for this program >>> ( in this case I'll loose any info related to the previous version of the program...)
2) To put each version of this program in a different windows directory : for example I can start from the base version c:/RAA_programs/cobol_base_version and then I should add c:/RAA_programs/cobol_version1 , version2 and so on ) >>> ( in this case the run unit should become in error)
So the question is: how to manage different version of the same program in RAA repository? Is this possible ? or not?
P.S. I've seen a discussion similar to this topic in this forum https://www.ibm.com/developerworks/community/forums/html/topic?id=77777777-0000-0000-0000-000014726642&ps=25 . nevertheless I still hope something is changed
