Keep z/XDC Current
The z/XDC maintenance decks include fixes for reported problems as well as occasional new functionality. All maintenance decks are CUMULATIVE for each release. There's no way to download discrete fixes – you get the whole package. Additionally, if you install a brand new release of z/XDC, it will refuse to initialize unless maintenance is applied, so that you'll be sure you're using the most current update. New maintenance will be linked to the appropriate maintenance page as it is released, and will also be announced in our LinkedIn Users Group.
Using the Maintenance Decks
To find out what maintenance level your copy of z/XDC is running currently, you can start a z/XDC session ("XDCCALL IEFBR14" will do nicely), and issue the "LIST MAINTENANCE" command. z/XDC reports the maintenance level in its own format like this: "ZnX-YYMMX".
Here's how to understand that character string:
- The "ZnX" prefix describes the product level. So, "Z19" refers to z/XDC Release z1.9. "Z1D", refers to release Z1.13.
- The "YYMMX" suffix describes the two-digit year and two-digit month of the fix. The trailing "X" describes the maintenance "generation" for that month.
