Defining Language Names

You must provide ChangeMan ZMF with all of the language names that will be used in applications in this environment. The languages on this list are paired with skeleton names to create the global procedure list in the next section of this chapter.

Application administrators select languages from this list when applications are configured.

To define global languages, take the following steps:

  1. Select Option 3 on the Update Global Administration Options menu (CMNGAMN1). The Global Language Names panel (CMNGGLNG) is displayed.

    The first time you access this panel to define global languages, the panel is empty. This is an example of the panel after languages are entered.

    CMNGGLNG               Global Language Names             Row 1 to 11 of 11 
    Command ===> ____________________________________________ Scroll ===> CSR
        Language Order 
    ___ ASM      0 
    ___ C        0
    ___ COBOL    0 
    ___ COBOL2   0 
    ___ JAVA     0 
    ___ JCLGEN   0 
    ___ LINK     0 
    ___ MFS      0 
    ___ PLI      0 
    ___ REX      0 
    ___ SQL      0

    The following table describes the fields on the Global Language Names panel.

    Column Description
    Line Command Type a line command to the left of a panel row.
    I - Insert a blank library type row.
    R - Repeat an existing library type row.
    D - Delete an existing library type row.
    Language Type the language name for the compile procedure. These language names are hard coded in stage skeletons in ISPF variable LNGNAME. If you use another language, analyze the PROCEDURE skeleton and other stage skeletons you intend to use to see if your language will require skeleton customization.
    ASM - Assembler
    C - C (not zFS)
    COBOLE - IBM Enterprise COBOL
    IMSFMT - IMS MFS Format
    PLI - PLI/I
    PLIE - IBM Enterprise PL/I
    SASC - SAS C
    SQL - Db2 SQL


  2. Type a new language or update an existing language on the panel. Use the line commands to Insert (below), Delete, or Repeat a panel row.

  3. Press PF3, or type End on the Command line and press Enter, to save your updates.
