Smart DB2 Attach

Smart/RRSAF lets you run DB2 batch programs with regular JCL, so they look and behave like standard OS jobs.  This ensures accurate SMF job accounting and accurate jobstep completion codes to prevent SNAFUs in DB2 batch production.  Smart/RRSAF transparently supports both low level attachment facilities provided by DB2 for z/OS:  Resource Recovery Services Attachment Facility (RRSAF) and Call Attachment Facility (CAF).  Applications can utilize either DB2 attachment without the need for user code to manage an explicit DB2 connection.  Smart/RRSAF  enables your applications to update DB2, MQ, IMS and any other RRS compliant resources within a single unit of recovery.  Smart/RRSAF also lets you vary the COMMIT frequency dynamically as well as trace the application's DB2 activity (which may include SQL and XML calls, DB2 commands and RRSAF, CAF and IFI requests).  Moreover, you can migrate from TSO Attach to Smart/RRSAF without source changes.  (Note:Smart/RRSAF is the successor product to Smart/CAF.)
