We are considering a conversion from Macro4 VTAMPrint to CA Raps on our z/VSE systems. In the current VTAMPrint environment, we have quite a lot of JCL that uses the M4VAPDS batch utility to split/segment/combine existing output in the POWER LST queue. I see that the CAPRUTL0 utility is available in RAPS to do the same or similar. Does CA have any documentation/tools to help with this conversion?
Also, the target z/VSE systems do not run CICS, so can I run the batch utility CAPRUTL0 without having RAPS running in CICS?
Advised the customer that after checking our database and consulting with Level 2, it was determined that we don't have any documentation/tools available for the Macro4 VTAMPrint conversion to CA Raps.
Regarding the customer's additional question, Level 2 advised that the batch utility CAPRUTL0 should work for him without having RAPS running in CICS if it is initialized at IPL time.
