CA TSOPLUS™ customers facing “End of Life” and “End of Support” can migrate to a fully supported replacement environment with TASKLIB+ and Launch Express from Relational Architects International (RAI). RAI is working directly with CA Technologies and CA TSOPLUS™ customers to ensure a seamless and transparent migration for users.
TASKLIB+ and Launch Express deliver the benefits of dynamic task and step libraries and fully “dynamic ISPF” in a pair of commercial products backed by knowledgeable, responsive and professional support. TASKLIB+ implements the STEPLIBX facility of CA TSOPLUS™ while Launch Express provides full support of the On Demand Application (ODA) feature being sunsetted by CA. TSOPLUS™ shops can transition to a fully supported solution as their maintenance terms expire.
TASKLIB+ and Launch Express together offer a complete solution and methodology for managing ISPF applications and the dialog libraries they require (including load libraries). z/OS shops can dramatically improve TSO logon times while simplifying and extending their TSO/ISPF environment. Multiple LOGON procedures and repetitive LOGON / LOGOFF sequences can be eliminated. Shops can instead standardize on a single, simple LOGON procedure for all users. TSO/ISPF users can also access and switch among multiple DB2 subsystems within a single ISPF session.
TASKLIB+ and Launch Express install and deploy seamlessly without an IPL and run with all releases of z/OS whose IBM support status is current — including z/OS V2.1.
TSOPLUS is a software product of CA® Technologies.
