This article explains what IPC stands for , what the components are and what the names of the SMP/E FMIDS are.
IPC refers to the InterProduct Components (EDK, PDF, PMS, PSS, SCF, VLS, and VPE).
A short description of the components:
* Virtual Library System (VLS)
A library access method used to store panels, message members, control blocks and user programs.
* Session Control Facility (SCF)
A task dispatcher that provides a variety of high-level services that process menus and PF keys, and handle commands.
* Print Sub-System (PSS)
A set of routines that provides system and network printing services for a variety of products.
* Panel Management Services (PMS)
A set of services used to acquire, send, receive, manage and process panels built using PDF as well as fields contained in the panels.
* Panel Definition Facility (PDF)
A facility used to build the user panels and applications that are managed and processed at run-time by PMS.
* Editor Kernel (EDK)
A text editing facility.
* Virtual Processing Environment (VPE)
A processing environment that provides independence from the TP monitor and operating system.
Prior to IPC 14.0, each component had its own FMID. Starting with IPC 14.0 , although still a suite of seven components, it now only has 2 FMID's. One for CICS and one for Batch.
For IPC 14.0 :
CAVQE00 - this FMID is for batch
CAVQE05 - this FMID is for CICS specific modules
For IPC 15.0:
CAVQF00 - this FMID is for batch
CAVQF05 - this FMID is for CICS specific modules
For IPC 15.1:
CAVQF10 - this FMID is for batch
CAVQF15 - this FMID is for CICS specific modules
