Introduction:

  • BSTXCOPY is a new CA Endevor utility that performs the same functions as BSTCOPY.
  • BSTCOPY is a processor utility and can only be executed within a CA Endevor Processor. 
  • BSTXCOPY is an external version of this processor utility.  
  • BSTXCOPY can be used to copy between PDS load libraries and PDSE load libraries, from PDSE to PDSE, and from PDSE back to PDS.
  • BSTXCOPY can copy aliases but the original LOADLIB member must be present in the FROM library.  

 

Background:

When converting a CA Endevor processor output library that contains Footprints from PDS to PDSE, IEBCOPY should also not be used because the *LOADMOD Footprints will be lost.

 

Environment:

This utility is delivered with CA Endevor V18.0 and higher and available for Endevor r15.1, 16.0 and v17 via PTF.

Below you will find a link for each version to the PTF. 

 

Instructions:  

The following JCL shows how to execute this utility. The first library in the STEPLIB contains the Endevor site specific modules (C1DEFLTS, ENDICNFG etc.):

 

//COPYEX EXEC PGM=NDVRC1,PARM=BSTXCOPY
//STEPLIB DD DISP=SHR,DSN=YOUR.ENDEVOR.CSIQAUTU                   
//                DD DISP=SHR,DSN=YOUR.ENDEVOR.CSIQAUTH                         
//                DD DISP=SHR,DSN=YOUR.ENDEVOR.CSIQLOAD                          
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*                                                 
//SYSUT3   DD UNIT=VIO,SPACE=(CYL,(1,2))                               
//SYSUT4   DD UNIT=VIO,SPACE=(CYL,(1,2))                              
//INDD     DD DISP=(OLD,PASS),DSN=YOUR.PDS.LOADLIB   (PDS)                
//OUTDD    DD DISP=(OLD,PASS),DSN=YOUR.NEW.PDSE.LOADLIB  (PDSE)
//SYSIN    DD *                                                           
   COPY INDD=((INDD,R)),OUTDD=OUTDD
