Replacement option for Management Central Product Definitions
Under OS/400 version 7.1 and earlier , Management Central provided product definition functions with a GUI to support creating and managing ISV/In-house developed applications. This support also included creation and management of PTF against the registered product. This function has been removed with current web access and Client Solutions product offerings.
We are looking for a replacement product or procedure to transition our application management and distribution processes moving forward to v7r3 and beyond.
We have a large number of product and module definitions registered in Management Central which has been used for many years to manage PTF creation and distribution. Currently we need to keep our management machine at v7r1 to maintain access/control of these definitions. IBM has not offered an alternative solution to create, manage PTF for ISV created applications.
