Configuring and running the ISPF client on z/OS® systems

ISPF client libraries are created as part of the SMP/E installation. The libraries contain files to help configure and run the ISPF client.

Complete these tasks to customize the ISPF client. The security settings in ISPF client security are required to use the ISPF client and daemon.

The IBM® Engineering Workflow Management (EWM) ISPF client libraries are created as part of the SMP/E installation. When you run the REXX procedure for starting the ISPF client, the libraries are dynamically added to your TSO/ISPF session. The libraries are assigned only when needed by using LIBDEF and ALTLIB services. This method ensures that existing TSO/ISPF logon procedures do not need to be changed.

The components of the ISPF client dialog are delivered in these libraries:
SBLZEXEC
REXX EXECs
SBLZLOAD
Load modules
SBLZMxxx
ISPF messages
SBLZPxxx
ISPF panels
hlq.SBLZSAMP
Sample JCL members
where xxx identifies the national language. For example, SBLZPENU is the ISPF panel library for US English.
