13083: z/OS XCF Note Pad Usage and Exploitation

Thursday, February 7, 2013: 4:30 PM-5:30 PM
Franciscan B, Ballroom Level (San Francisco Hilton)
Speaker: Mark A. Brooks(IBM Corporation)
  • XCF Note Pad Slides (863.2 kB)
  • XCF Note Pad Handout (1.3 MB)
  • We are providing a new XCF programming interface via APAR OA38450 on z/OS V1R13 that will be exploited by SAP.  The speaker will focus on two things: the XCF programming interface itself, and the various things that the system programmer needs to do to configure the system for note pads (security, CFRM policy, structure sizings and the like).  The speaker will also explain SAP exploitation to provide an example of its use as well as explain the benefits to customers of running SAP with this support enabled.  The programming interface supports unauthorized callers and it gives applications virtually painless access to a CF list structure (though the services offered by the note pad programming model are not nearly as extensive as the traditional XES list structure interfaces).

    Tracks: Application Development, Software Architecture and z/OS Systems Programming
