Allow DVM Studio to prompt for workspace at startup

Typically, Eclipse-based products will prompt the user for a workspace when the application is launched. DVM Studio, however, uses or creates dvm_workspace automatically. If a user wants to test a new version of Studio without the risk of the work...

Allow for a single DVM subsystem to connect to multiple IMS subsystems.

Currently DBCTL access to IMS requires that an IMSID be provided in the DVM configuration file. This parameter is limited to a single value and therefore a DVM subsystem must be created for each IMS subsystem. In a single test environment, we coul...

Enable secured access to the JDBCGateway Admin Console

Currently access is only available via HTTP vs HTTPS. We would like a secure connection made available to protect the admin credentials.

Allow a DVM access method that will prompt the user for a password when accessing JGate resources

Data sources that are accessed via JGate will have a non-RACF security mechanism. We will use ICSF rules to map application ID's and User Groups to the appropriate credentials for accessing JGate, but we cannot use this same approach for individua...

Enable instances of a virtual table using a PSB/PCB using a PROCSEQ to use an alternate index (non-root)

Per IBM instances of a virtual table using a PSB/PCB using a PROCSEQ to use an alternate index are only supported for indexes on the ROOT segment. This severely impacts performance for DVM access to IMS data which performs well via IMS using secon...

Support for AES_256 ciphers in DVM Studio secure connections

Currently with DVM Studio v1.1.53 it is not possible to establish a secure TLSv1.2 connection to the z/OS DVM server using AES_256 ciphers. Attempts to connect securely using an AES_256 cipher result in the following error: An error occurred while...

NEVER fall back to IMS DBCTL when SQL is not eligible for IMS Direct

We have a requirement to restrict access to IMS Direct only. Users should not have access to IMS Online. In DVM when an SQL is not eligible for IMS Direct DVM directs the SQL to IMS Online despite IMS Online not being enabled in DVM. There is no o...
