Use of Dataspace with Datacom software

I am starting the process to upgrade my Datacom software and am setting up the proc for the Multi-User Facility (called MUF). Do I need to set up any special proc for the Dataspace?


Release : 15.1

Component : Datacom/AD

Component : Datacom/DB


Since Datacom Version 12.0, the Dataspace is created automatically, and a separate proc is no longer needed.0

As noted in the Datacom/DB documentation for the Datacom/DB Mode of Operation:

Common memory is used for connections between the MUF address spaces and user address spaces that connect to MUF using DATASPACE memory.
The first execution of a MUF allocates a data space under CAMASTER or ASID 1 with a number followed by the letters, MUF. This data space is reused with each MUF execution until the next IPL. The name of the data space is provided in the message, DB00278I - DATASPACE NAME 00001MUF.

Therefore, you need not do anything special for a Dataspace under Version 15.x.
