Offline product integration

This topic discusses the advantages of combining and using the two products that comprise the Fast Path Offline Suite in an environment in which maintenance is handled within the constraints of the traditional batch processing window.

Fast Path Offline Suite System flow in offline mode and Sample JCL for multiple Fast Path Offline Suite offline functions show the functional flow and simple one-step JCL that is used for simultaneous execution of Fast Path Offline Suite database reorganization, analysis, and image copy functions in offline mode.

Sample JCL for multiple Fast Path Offline Suite offline functions

//STEPLIB     DD DSN=BMC.PFP.LOAD,DISP=SHR
//            DD DSN=IMS.RESLIB,DISP=SHR
//PFPSYSIN    DD *
