Baseline Libraries and Delta Decks

ChangeMan ZMF recognizes that your software components are important business assets. ChangeMan ZMF gives you the ability to store your production source components in a structure that works for your organization. Components can be stored in PDSs, CA-Librarian files, or CA-Panvalet files. Components can be segregated by application, or by categories, such as batch versus online. Equally, applications can share libraries.

ChangeMan ZMF automatically stores prior versions of components. These versions can be stored as full copies (inherent for load components), or as delta decks. ChangeMan ZMF uses a reverse base/delta technique known as stacked reverse deltas. With this technique, the current version of the component is the base, and delta decks are created to backtrack to previous versions.
