Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED: All users of the z/OSMF Software Management  *
    *                 task.                                        *

    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: Add Data Set Merge capability during a  *
    *                      deployment.                             *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION: The z/OSMF Software Management task in z/OS  *
    *                 V2.3, V2.4, and V2.5 is enhanced to support  *
    *                 a new Merge action for target data sets      *
    *                 during a deployment operation.               *
    ****************************************************************
    The z/OSMF Software Management task is updated to support a new
    Merge action for target data sets during a deployment operation.
    Specifically, the software instance Export action is updated to
    create a portable software instance (PSWI) that enables the
    Merge action during a deployment.  When deploying a PSWI that
    has been so enabled, the new Merge action is available on the
    Deployment Configuration, Data Sets page.  The Merge action
    allows one or more candidate data sets to be merged into the
    selected target data set.
    
    This data set merge function is most useful when installing a
    z/OS PSWI.  The most commonly merged target data sets are ISPF
    component data sets such as panels, messages, etc, and UNIX file
    system data sets.
    
    In addition to providing the new data set merge function, the
    following issues are also fixed:
    - The Deployment View action has been updated to display a
    saved partial configuration.
    - The Modify Data Sets page in the deployment configuration
    wizard has been updated to modify the selected data sets even
    when a display filter on the Target Data Set Name column has
    been set.
    - JNIServiceException messages will be properly displayed
    within messages similar to IZUD9723E.
