CARMA Repository Access Managers (RAMs)
A Repository Access Manager (RAM) is an Application Programming Interface (API) for a z/OS® based Software Configuration Manager (SCM). In turn, Developer for z/OS or user-written applications can start a CARMA server, which loads the RAMs and provides a standard interface to access any supported SCM.
The CARMA server must be able to find the RAM load modules, either through LINKLIST or STEPLIB/TASKLIB.
CRAR* RAM load modules that are provided by Developer for z/OS are
FEL.SFELLOAD, and the sample source code
and compile jobs are located in
unless you used a different high level qualifier during the SMP/E

The following sections have customization notes for the RAMs that
are available with Developer for z/OS.
The referenced sample members are located in
