IMS

Your site must have a licensed copy of the IMS Database Manager product in either of the following cases:


Note

If you plan to use AR/CTL in IMS-compatible mode (where IMS is not present during application program execution, no IMS license is required.


AR/CTL and the BCF component are supported for use with all IBM-supported versions and releases of IMS.


Note

As IMS requires that all application programs complete normally under the old release before executing under the new release, AR/CTL also requires that all application programs complete normally under the old AR/CTL release before migrating to the new release. After migration, you cannot restart a job that terminated abnormally under the previous release.
