We are manually maintaining the versions of the ADS/O Dialogs. Need a tool to do it in more controlled way. Can anybody let me know of any tools which support it or any alternative ways?
Hi, as far as I know, ChangeMan tracks changes of ADSO objects but this is done thru batch recompiles. CA-Endeavor works totally online integrated with ADSO, IDD environement..
We are starting to consider Changeman as well. It is interesting because the ADSO code is stored in IDMS. Storing it additionally in Changeman seems workable since the Changeman jobs can be coded to use the MODIFY verb - which would essentially replace the objects in ADS.
I am afraid that configuring changeman for all the scenarios may be pretty complex. Dialogs will need generates, newcopy, etc where simpler objects like Modules and Tables will need fewer steps.
I wonder if anyone is already using Changeman with IDMS ADS?
We use ENDEVOR/DB in combination with ENDEVOR. It is not really a version management solution; it is more of a way to manage the deployment of the code changes.
Here is my answer to the questions mentioned in the title of this question, related to things like ADS/O dialogs or maps:
