    Datacom CADRE Community members,

    As part of our continuing effort to optimize your environment, the Datacom Group is pleased to provide additional support for VSAM Linear Datasets (VSAM LDS).  This enhancement extends VSAM LDS support to the Datacom/DB Directory (CXX) system dataset.  This is in addition to support provided previously for data areas, index areas and the Force Area (FXX).

    VSAM LDS support offers distinct advantages over traditional BDAM/EXCP datasets such as Pervasive Encryption, improved performance through Media Manager access and increased zIIP offload.

    This enhancement also promotes adoption by providing JCL examples for migration of the FXX and CXX system datasets from BDAM/EXCP to VSAM LDS.
