The CA Datacom load library CABDLOAD contains several versions of some DSF modules. For example, there are three different versions of the DDCICSnn module, depending on the CICS/TS release:


If running any CTS release above 3.2, is a new set of modules required?


DSF Programming Guide manual contains a compatibility matrix for DDBSCnn module:

For CICS Transaction     Running Under     Use
1.1                       z/VSE             11
3.1 	                  z/OS              31
3.2                       z/OS              32
4.1 or higher             z/OS              32

This is also valid for all the other DSF modules (DDPCADnn, DDCICSnn, DDCADnn): for CICS/TS 4.1 and above the modules suffixed with 32 must be used, so no need for a new set.
