CA User Group Web Site






In April of 2006 CA restructured their user group program. The new
structure is based on

global Product Line Communities (or PLC's). Existing national and
international groups

such as the IUA (IDMS), CADRE (Datacom), I-NUGE and EDGE were used as

the models for the new PLC construct. PLC's are not meant to replace
regional

user groups but to help coordinate and leverage global efforts for the
users of the

products represented by the PLC.



New PLC's have been formed for CA product areas, such as security, where
only regional groups

existed. The IUA was already considered an existing umbrella group and
became the

PLC for CA IDMS. The PLC's receive support from CA in the form of
supplemental funding,

free accounting services from Smith Bucklin, and use of webcast
facilities for quarterly web

casts with the respective CA development organizations (we are planning
to hold one in the near future).



The PLC's are independent entities that are free to pursue product
avocation,

education, and supplement CA funding with events such as our workshops.


The IUA has always taken pride in our independence and will

always remain an independent entity.



However, the services the IUA provides such as Workshops, the IDMS-L,
IUA web site,

and Connections newsletter require funding. Since we do not charge dues,
workshop

sponsorships and CA funding have become our major sources of revenue. In
order to justify

PLC funding CA uses membership counts from their causergroups.com web
site. We

currently only have 56 people registered on the causergroups site but
there are over 600 of us

on the IDMS-L.



We know your time is valuable but the IUA is asking all of you to
register for the

IDMS PLC on the CA site. Please go to www.causergroups.com ,register,


and join the the PLC - IDMS (IUA/EIUA)
<http://www.causergroups.com/usergroups/UserGroupHome.aspx?ID=104>
group.



Your registration will help secure IUA funding and will show that there
are

many of us heavily involved in CA IDMS and that we are one of the
largest and proudest

CA user communities. In addition to registering as a member of the IDMS
PLC,

please take a moment register for your local or country IDMS User Group
and gain

even more benefits of a user community in your area. It only requires a
couple of extra clicks .



In the next couple of weeks we are going to use the CA voting tool to
record the balloting for the

outstanding CA IDMS DARS (enhancement requests). CA takes the results of
the DAR

balloting into account when determining which enhancements are
implemented in future

CA IDMS releases or service packs. You will need to be registered on the
causergroups

site to be eligible to vote for the DARS.



As an added incentive for registering at the CA site, every person who
registers

will receive an email with a link to download a free retrieval only copy
of the new

ObjEx CA IDMS XML Query Tool. This is a new PC based CA IDMS access tool


announced at the Herndon workshop in April. It is a very flexible and
powerful tool for

accessing your mainframe CA IDMS data.

You will receive this email between now and the end of the year.



Our goal is to have everyone registered on the causergroups site by
December 14th.



We thank you for your continued support of the IUA.



Thanks,
Terry Schwartz
IUA Chair

Re: User storage question
"Yes, it is a TCP/IP terminal with a generic listener. We have created a
simple IDMS SOAP server where the SOAP service requested is actually a
user-written DC-COBOL program that is linked to by the generic listener.
We use CICS web services to generate the WSDL files. (This is easy to
do if you have the right level of CICS and a cooperative CICS systems
programmer.)

Although the generic listener signs the user on and calls the requested
program, all of the tasks appear under the single generic listener task
with ""unknown user"". We need to know the program and user for
monitoring and billing purposes. So we split the listener program in
twTo: The first part read the incoming request, signs the user on, then
starts a new task with the same name as the requested user program. The
second part does the link to the user program, and sends the reply. The
socket connection and other info is passed from the first task to the
second via user storage.

This is still in test mode. Before the design gets set in stone, I am
trying to break it in various ways to see what problems we might have in
production. And I realised that with the two-task design, there may be
times when the user storage is not explicitly freed by either task.
Thus my original question.

I now have a second question: In the two-task scenario, both tasks show
up in the Performance Monitor reports under the signon-on user. I am
pleased as punch (now they can be billed for the whole thing!), but do
wonder why. I expected the second task to, but the first task is
basically the first half of the original listener that showed up as
""unknown user"". Any ideas?
