Support Mechanism:

IBM i – with the operating system
z/OS – with DFSMS/MVS 1.3.0
AIX – with IBM COBOL Set for AIX, IBM PL/1 Set for AIX


A large bullet (*) indicates that support is provided on the platform for the corresponding API. The APIs are documented in "Chapter 5. CDRA Interface Definitions". Appendix H. CDRA and IBM i. details restrictions and deviations in the IBM i implementation of the CDRA defined APIs. Likewise Appendix I. "DFSMS/MVS Considerations" details the variances for the DFSMS support of CDRA which is provided on z/OS
