Source Transport Utility--Transport Applications in Source Form

Last update March 9, 2017

You can transport applications or individual parts of CA Ideal™ for CA Datacom® applications in source form or object form. This section describes how to transport applications in source form using the Source Transport Utility. For information on transporting applications in object form, see the section IDUTOTRN Utility--Transport Applications in Object Form.

The Source Transport Utility (IDUTSTRN) lets you import and export CA Ideal™ for CA Datacom® source code for the following entities:

  • Programs
  • Panels
  • Reports
  • Documents
  • Sequential file dataviews that are not modeled in Datadictionary
  • VSAM file dataviews
  • Members

It also lets you import HELP members.

The Source Transport Utility is a batch utility that you can use to:

  • Extract source code from one installation and load it to another
  • Unload source code to archive for backup and auditing purposes
  • Restore source selectively from external source format
  • Load source generated externally to CA Ideal™ for CA Datacom®

The Source Transport Utility cannot import or export user definitions, system definitions, and dataviews for CA Datacom®/DB or DB2, or modeled sequential file dataviews.
