International User Conference

TEMPE, Ariz.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 12, 2002

Diversified Software announced the release of PRO/JCL(R) 2.5.0 during their annual International User Conference and Technical Forum in Tempe, Arizona. One of the key additions of this release is the Directed Execution capability, making PRO/JCL 2.5.0 the only Job Control Language (JCL) product with the ability to validate JCL for a target system that is different than the one the user is working on. This is a key capability for sites where "test" and "production" environments are running on separate machines. Directed Execution ensures the integrity of system security through the use of local security tools such as Resource Access Control Facility (RACF(R)).

The new directed execution capability enables JCL to be validated while still in the test environment, even if test and production systems don't share the system catalog, DASD, or other resources. This is done using Diversified Software's unique peer-to-peer architecture. Until this announcement, the final validation of the JCL hadn't been practical until it was physically moved into the production environment. JCL errors could still crop up after the move, triggering additional back out, change, test and move cycles.

"Directed Execution eliminates these unnecessary series of steps and takes JCL validation to new levels of completeness," said Steve Sando, PRO/JCL Chief Architect.

PRO/JCL is designed for data centers running z/OS and OS/390(R) on IBM mainframes. Clients use PRO/JCL to ensure effective JCL deployment into production by providing fast and effective error-free validation, standardization, optimization and maintenance of production JCL.

PRO/JCL 2.5.0 will be generally available the first Quarter of 2003. Pricing will be announced at that time.
