    I'm lost and/or confused.

     

    The last I saw, CMEW was "stabilized" (I think).... but what exactly does this mean? I still see references to it (manuals, screens, etc) so clearly its existence is still acknowledged.

     

    There are still things I'd like to consider USING with the tool (like web access for approving packages or, believe it or not, enterprise packages) but can I still acquire the software?

    Hi Craig!

     

    That "sort of" answers my question but only from an enhancement request perspective.

     

    It doesn't really answer my question of whether I should (or can) consider using the tool or what software replace(s)(d) the tool if I don't already have it on an active license. Or what plans there are to address the deficit (lack of a web/mobile interface to Endevor as provided by CA). 

     

    I sort of get the impression I'm just plain out of luck if I want a CA supported web interface to Endevor....

    John:

     

    You have Endevor Eclipse plugin to perform Endevor actions on your local machine through webservices. You can perform element and package actions from your desktop. You can add from or retrieve to local file, USS file, or mainframe PDS. All other element actions are supported.   You can currently perform most package actions under the latest release.

     

    regards,

    Craig

    I guess in the end all I really want is this: Bring Back Endevor Webstation with Mobility 

     

    Eclipse for Managers/Approvers is kind of overkill....

    O.K., you are looking for the Holy Grail of package approvals. There is something planned, but I don't have the details.
