Rules for Rebinding Load

These rules and restrictions apply to the rebind load function.

  • You can rebind a like-load component that resides in a baseline library or a staging library.

  • You can rebind a component that was rebinded previously in your package.

  • You cannot rebind a component was checked out to your package, staged from development, or recompiled into your package.

  • When you rebind a component that is already in other active packages, a SEND message is broadcast to the userid associated with the component in those packages.

Exit Programs for Rebind Load

Your ChangeMan ZMF installer or administrators may implement exit programs to alter the behavior of ChangeMan ZMF. Ask your administrator if any of the following business rules apply to your application.

  • Restrict the library types displayed on the valid library selection list for checkout, stage, browse baseline, browse compressed listing, compare, scan, scratch/rename, and relink functions. This exit effectively disables these functions for the specified library types. (Exit program CMNEX035)

You can also use the HLL exit capability via the BULD fnctional area of the HLLX Getting Started Guide.

Obtaining Build Information

ChangeMan ZMF needs the language, procedure, link edit options, and user options to create the rebind job. Because the options used to rebind a component are independent from those used during the compile and link process, rebind uses the latest component history from rebind, not stage or recompile. The latest component history is defined as the first found in the this search order.

  1. Current package.

  2. Baselined package with the latest package baselined date/time.

  3. Deleted/archived package with the latest component history changed date/time.

  4. Package in motion with the latest package component history changed date/time.

  5. Initial history record in component history.
