Source Management on EWM
EWM provides many different functions, but for AD integration purposes, it concentrates on its source management aspects, and more specifically on z/OS source management.
Several EWM objects that are part of this process:
- Stream - represents a specific version, branch, or release of a collection of software components.
- Component - represents a collection of related software objects, such as a COBOL source library and COBOL copybook library. Together can be used to build a software component.
- Repository Workspace - represents a container object in EWM that can be loaded with components from a particular stream.
- Sandbox - represents a set of folders in the local file system where the user can load files from the workspace, make changes, and then check-in the changed files back to the repository workspace.
