CA TPX uses CA Common Services LMP keys to activate the various components of CA TPX.
Automated Conversation Language/Extended (ACL/E) is a high-level programming language oriented to the 3270 keyboard. ACL/E automates routine interactions, such as application session signon and signoff, and provides powerful tools that enhance the way users see and use applications. For example, ACL/E works with the CA TPX panel manager to display alternate screen images. This capability serves a wide range of purposes, from supplying customized help panels for applications to re-engineering user interfaces for SAA compliance. ACL/E's ability to coordinate multiple application sessions provides state-of-the-art application integration.
We are considering removing the LMP key NP for the TPX ACL/E option. How can we verify whether we are using this option or not?
With ACL/E LMP key active, you will see this messages in the TPX startup:
TPX9925 OPTION ACLE OF UNICENTER CA-TPX IS AUTHORIZED
When you remove the LMP keys, these messages will disappear after the next IPL.
If you are not authorized for ACL/E then you have no scripting ability within TPX. If you are doing any scripting at all, you would be using ACL/E. (For example: Application Start or Terminate ACL, etc.)
