The CL Corner: Retrieving Test Case Information

Are you taking advantage of printer files and subfiles in your CL programs?

bruce_viningWritten by Bruce Vining

In the two previous columns, "A Much More Flexible SNDESCAPE Program" and "Controlling the CL Testing Environment," we saw how to use PowerCL: CL for Files commands to write and update records in a database file, respectively. In today's column, we'll look at how to work with printer files and subfiles, from a CL program, by implementing the command Display Test Cases (DSPTSTCASE).

It's interesting that certain software companies like Oracle are trying to get into the hardware business, while companies such as IBM,  already in the hardware and software business, are now introducing a series of "appliances" that allow them to sell both hardware and software. There are companies, however, that are simply focusing on what their customers need, which is a more efficient way to run their businesses.

Partner TechTip: Our System Administrator Did WHAT?

Are your powerful users accountable for their actions?

robin_tatamWritten by Robin Tatam

One of the greatest challenges an organization faces when securing an IBM i environment is protecting the system from the very people who are charged with its care: programmers, administrators, and security officers. While these power users often need access to restricted objects and commands, they rarely need that level of access 24 hours a day—and definitely not without accountability.
