Question:

What is the CA IDMS Universal Communications Facility Option used for?

Answer:

A DC/UCF system has an operator console that allows entering DC/UCF operator commands and task codes at the console at system runtime.

Application programs executing within CA IDMS/UCF environments can make database requests of the central version.

An application program executing within the CA IDMS/UCF environment can take advantage of the single region architecture of CA IDMS. Because the database and data communications services operate within a single address space, database requests do not need to be transferred across address space.
