IBM is announcing a new release of its flagship production print product, Print Services Facility (PSF) V4.3 for z/OS. This latest release supports recent updates to the Advanced Function Presentation™ (AFP) industry architecture and makes these latest print standards available on z/OS. In addition, enhancements have been made to the AFP Download Plus separately priced feature of PSF and to the AFP Conversion and Indexing Facility (ACIF) separately priced feature of PSF.

Whether it is printing monthly statements, providing financial data, or displaying personal healthcare information, print and output is a mission-critical workload for many enterprises. Enterprise print and output can also account for a significant percentage of a company's overall cost of doing business. With PSF V4.3 for z/OS enterprise print and output can be a potential source of real dollar savings. For example, PSF for z/OS can help provide:

  • Reduced overall labor costs through the use of automation
  • Improved print asset utilization by connecting more applications to existing devices
  • Minimized scheduling delays, reduced errors and wasted paper, and reduced reprints of "disappearing" jobs with end-to-end workflow management
  • Improved timeliness with industry-leading print service levels, error recovery, diagnostics, defect support
  • Increased competitive advantage with flexible delivery (such as workgroup, cutsheet, continuous form, black-and-white, color) and flexible operations (such as multiple data formats, scheduling options, and so on)

With PSF V4.3 for z/OS, IBM is building on its enterprise production print capabilities by enhancing its end-to-end, managed workflow used to deliver high-quality color and black-and-white printing on z/OS, with consistent results across a variety of devices that support this architecture.

PSF for z/OS is based on industry print standards. PSF V4.3 for z/OS incorporates the most recent AFP Architecture changes approved by the AFP Consortium. This print architecture provides consistent and device-independent color rendering across multiple color technologies and printer vendors. The AFP Color Consortium™ became an industry standards body in 2006, and was incorporated in 2009 as the AFP Consortium. The AFP Consortium, comprised of 40 vendor members and growing, strives to enhance the entire AFP architecture.

Description
Bottom rule

Print Services Facility (PSF) for z/OS offers exceptional versatility to help you manage your production print and output environment. PSF enables: automated print processes, system management of print files, attributes, and resources, as well as page-level error recovery, accounting, extensive diagnostics, and print process statistics. PSF sophistication, resilience, and diagnostics are unmatched by other print management systems.

PSF V4.3 provides the following capabilities:

  • New bar code capabilities are available to support increasing use of bar codes in applications to provide mail optimization for postal savings, and to control automated workflows.
  • Improved color management is optimized with the following enhancements:
    1. Color Conversion Color Management Resources (CMRs) can now pass through CMYK colors more easily.
    2. Indexed CMRs map indexed colors in the data to output device colors or colorant combinations enables easier migration of existing color applications to newer color printer technologies.
    3. Process colors can be specified as the default color in the data descriptor for a Graphics Object Content Architecture object, providing full color image reproduction in very high quality.
  • New finishing options now allow applications to specify documents to be bound into booklets, or trimmed to a specified size required by the finished document.
  • AFP Download Plus is now better: Improved performance and resource utilization, additional info in the AFPSTATS report, reduced TCP/IP commands, control over transmit recovery interval, sending error messages and separator pages to the receiver to better coordinate print production.
  • New messages and error handling improve PSF quality and provide additional diagnostic information. An example is Composition Error Handling, providing capability to hold jobs on the spool when the print data requests a medium map that is not found in the Form definition.

Many significant enhancements have been made to the AFP Download Plus separately priced feature of PSF. Enhancements have also been made to the ACIF separately priced feature of PSF. ACIF can run on any z/OS system with or without PSF. These enhancements are as follows:

AFP Download Plus

  • Optionally send Mixed Object Document Content Architecture™ data directly to the receiving system without storing it in a temporary file in the working directory
  • Change the transmission recovery interval with a new AFPPARMS control statement parameter
  • Send an error message data set to the receiver when errors stop transformation
  • Send the active PSF for z/OS separator pages to the receiver

ACIF

  • The COLORMAP parameter has been added to allow users to specify color mapping tables.
  • The IDXCPGID, MVSINCV, and NOINCV values have been added to the EXTENSIONS parameter
  • New and updated messages

Specified operating environment

Hardware requirements

IBM Print Services Facility (PSF) requires a host processor that accommodates the software environment.

PSF supports printing AFP printers that adhere to the IPDS specifications. Not all functions of PSF are supported by all IPDS printers. To use Color Mapping Resources (CMRs) with PSF V4.3, the IPDS printer must support the corresponding AFP Color Management Object Architecture according to published specifications.

Software requirements

PSF runs on:

  • z/OS V1.9, or later, with supported levels of JES2 or JES3.

One of the following system programs is required:

  • SMP/E element of z/OS
  • SMP/E V3.4 (5655-G44), or later

The following functions of the z/OS Communications Server are required, depending upon the printer attachment:

  • SNA Services for SNA-attached printers
  • IP Services for TCP/IP-attached printers

One of the following is required to provide host fonts:

  • Infoprint® Fonts for z/OS V1.1 (5648-E76), or later.
  • AFP Font Collection for z/OS V2.1.1 (5648-B33), or later.
  • The Compatibility Fonts optional feature of PSF, which does not contain euro support.
  • Worldtype Fonts for AFP Print Servers optional feature of Infoprint Fonts for Multiplatforms (5648-E77), which contains a wide selection of TrueType and OpenType fonts.
  • To use TrueType and OpenType fonts, you must have these:
    • A resource installer program, such as the Font Installer optional feature of Infoprint Fonts for Multiplatforms, or the InfoPrint® AFP Resource Installer (5639-EE2).
    • A product that supplies TrueType and OpenType fonts, such as the WorldType Fonts for AFP Print Servers optional feature of Infoprint Fonts for Multiplatforms.

    PSF can successfully process resource access tables (RATs) created with either the IBM Font Installer or the InfoPrint AFP Resource Installer. However, a RAT created with the IBM Font Installer is not compatible with a RAT created with the InfoPrint AFP Resource Installer. Though the AFP Resource Installer can process a RAT created with the Font Installer and migrate it into the new format, the opposite is not true. When the Font Installer processes a RAT created with the AFP Resource Installer, it might lose the RAT information or an error might occur. Therefore, IBM recommends that you do not use the Font Installer once you have created a RAT with the AFP Resource Installer.

Compatibility

PSF V4.3 for z/OS is upwardly compatible with PSF V4.2, and earlier, with the following exceptions:

  • PSF V4 for z/OS does not include the optional feature, Page Printer Migration Programs (PPMP), which is no longer supported. Customers currently using PPMP should migrate to the replacement product, Infoprint XT™ Extender for z/OS V1R1 (5655-J65). For additional information, contact your local IBM representative.
  • The AFP API component of PSF/MVS V2.2 is no longer provided with PSF V4. It is functionally replaced by AFP Toolbox, program product 5655-A25. Customers using the PSF/MVS V2.2 API can continue to use their existing program modules on an as-is basis or migrate to AFP Toolbox.
  • The IP PrintWay™ and NetSpool™ optional features are no longer available or supported. These optional features are functionally replaced by the Infoprint Server optional feature of z/OS. Customers who want the functionality of IP PrintWay and NetSpool should order the Infoprint Server optional feature of z/OS.
  • The Enhanced ACIF feature of PSF is now a separately ordered and priced feature. A base PSF license is no longer required when ordering Enhanced ACIF.
Performance considerations

The performance of PSF and its attached printers is dependent upon availability and efficiency of memory, storage, DASD, and channel and network resources in the system configuration. It is also highly dependent upon the content of the print datastreams being processed. In general, data-intensive applications, such as those containing images, require more resources than applications containing plain text. If performance degradation is experienced, normal system performance analysis and tuning should be conducted before contacting IBM Service.

User group requirements

FITS Requirement MR0430082748

Planning information

Customer responsibilities

PSF interacts with JES printer definitions, and for communication with attached printers, with VTAM® and/or TCP/IP device definitions. Printers' device definitions should be in place for JES, VTAM, and/or TCP/IP prior to installing PSF.

Installability

Sample startup procedures for PSF V4 will reference different fonts than those used in the startup procedures for PSF V2.2. Care should be taken not to replace any startup procedures with the new samples until they can be tested with your available font libraries.

Direct customer support

Direct customer support is provided by IBM Operational Support Services - SoftwareXcel Enterprise Edition or SoftwareXcel Basic Edition. These fee services can enhance your productivity by providing voice and electronic access into the IBM support organization. IBM Operational Support Services - SoftwareXcel Enterprise Edition or SoftwareXcel Basic Edition will help answer questions pertaining to usage, how-to, and suspected software defects for eligible products.

Packaging

The PSF V4.3 base program and optional features are each shipped on separate tapes. No fonts are included on the PSF base tape. If the compatibility fonts are required, be sure to order the compatibility font optional, no-charge feature.

A program directory is shipped with each PSF feature that is ordered.

All publications are included on CD-ROMs in Bookmanager and PDF formats. These CD-ROMs are shipped with the base program. Terms and conditions for use of the machine-readable files are shipped with the files.

Security, auditability, and control

PSF uses the security features and programs of the z/OS operating systems. The customer is responsible for evaluation, selection, and implementation of security features, administrative procedures, and appropriate controls in application systems and communication facilities. The customer is responsible for evaluation, selection, and implementation of security features, administrative procedures, and appropriate controls in application systems and communication facilities.
