Are you aware that one can validate a member's components outside of Package Cast? 

Yes, one can validate a member’s components though the batch VALIDATE action which has an action option called COMPONENT VALIDATION.

If this option is enable it will perform component validation against the members you have selected.

 

Sample SCL:

 

VALIDATE ELEMENT 'COMP1'

             FROM ENVIRONMENT 'ENV1' SYSTEM 'XXXTEST' SUBSYSTEM 'XXXSUB1'

               TYPE 'COBOL' STAGE 1

            OPTIONS COMPONENT VALIDATION.

 

Wild carding is allowed.

The output would show:

 

FPVL003E  FOOTPRINT MISMATCH FOR

C1G0000I  INPUT COMPONENT COP1 

C1G0000I     FROM DATA SET XXX.XXX.COPYLIB

PKMR802I     FP ENV: ENV1 SYS: XXXTEST SUBSYS: XXXSUB1 TYPE: XXXCOPY STG: 1

PKMR805I     FP DATE/TIME IN COMPONENT LIST  : 01APR14  09:40

PKMR807I     GENERATE PROCESSOR DATE/TIME    : 30JUL14  13:56

PKMR808I     LAST PROCESSOR DATE/TIME        : 30JUL14  13:56
