UCF Operations

This section describes the procedures for generating a UCF system. UCF enables a terminal connected to a host TP monitor to execute DC/UCF tasks. For the purposes of this discussion, a DC/UCF task can be a user task, a task associated with an online software component, or a system-supplied task.

This section describes the procedures for generating a UCF system. UCF enables a terminal connected to a host TP monitor to execute DC/UCF tasks. For the purposes of this discussion, a DC/UCF task can be a user task, a task associated with an online software component, or a system-supplied task.
Typically, UCF is used to do the following:
  • Execute DC/UCF applications and host TP-monitor applications from the same terminal
  • Execute DC/UCF applications under two or more DC/UCF systems at the same terminal (for example, in a production and test environment)
  • Share data between an application executing under a DC/UCF system and an application executing under CICS or a different DC/UCF system.
TP MonitorsSupported
UCF supports the following TP monitors and terminal control facilities: CICS, CMS (z/VM), DC, and TSO. UCF also provides an interface to enable DC/UCF tasks to execute in batch mode.
