Issue/Introduction

Description:

V5.25 of Compress For IMS included the following instructions:

Next run INSTALL9. This job assembles and link-edits the source contained in SHRINK.IMS.SOURCE to create the program modules. The program modules use the IMS/VS macros: DFSLEV, ISCD, IDLI, IMODULE, and ISWITCH. To ensure valid macro expansions during the assemblies, use the IMS/VS macro library that relates to the IMS/VS release you are currently using. You must reassemble these modules whenever you change IMS/VS releases.

Now that Compress has been incorporated into Database Management Solutions r15.0, are there still any special requirements when we upgrade IMS levels?

Solution:

There shouldn't be any special requirements. Since IMS Tools 15.0, Compress handles different versions of IMS in the same way as the rest of the tools - if there is an IMS version specific code, there is a 'suffixed' load/object module for each supported version of IMS (10,11,12) and the right one chosen at runtime based on the detected version of IMS.
