Gen 8.0 FP1 and Batch z/OS Libraries

A previous posting described the new Gen 8.0 feature for z/OS dynamic RI triggers and libraries and an issue related to batch support. This has been addressed in Gen 8.0 Feature Pack 1 which is currently under beta test. FP1 also introduces some a useful enhancement to host encyclopaedia construction in allowing you to specify separate on-line and batch load libraries, so that when a dynamic action block needs to be linked separately for on-line and batch, this can be done from the same business system into separate load libraries.
