Finding CA Ideal application load module date and version metadata


Article ID: 115126


Updated On:




When browsing a CA Ideal application load module there are several pieces of metadata that can identify the source program as well as compile dates.



Component : CA Ideal



Identifying the CA Ideal program load module

Using CICS transaction IPCV or IDLX (IDEA), issue the following command:

=> @I$SCF PGM=loadmodulename

(Note that the information can also be found via CICS DBUT transaction.)

This example shows the load module information for program PHBEDIT in system ARP, using this display:

Module offset (hex) Description Value in Module
8 Common CA Ideal load module coremark QQQQLMID
10 Module name (7char) with suffix U, R, S or P
Note: The suffix reflects the module type:
               R = reentrant (non-updateable)
               U = updateable
               S = symbol table
               P = reentrant part of panel
1B Ideal system name ARP
1E Source program name PHBEDIT
26 Source program version 013
29 CA Ideal compile date/time (yymmddhhmmss) 160616104401
35 CA Ideal release 140
3A Program Name PHBEDIT
41 Date/time created (yymmddhhmmss) 161212170346
4D CA Ideal program release 140

The above information should also be seen in the Datadictionary when using the DDOL command
