IBM Tivoli Decision Support for z/OS Report Pack 3 provides sample report designs in both pre-TCR (Tivoli Common Reporting) and TCR formats, along with an updated tdszgen tool and configuration file for generating those (and also user-created) designs.
This report pack contains a number of pre-packaged web report designs corresponding to specific reports available from the Tivoli Decision Support for z/OS application along with the tdszgen tool.
A single zip file (tdsz_reports3_1.8.zip) is included which contains three other zip files.
The first (pretcr3.zip) is the sample reports in pre-TCR format. They can be installed into pre-TCR web reporting by copying them to the (tdszweb_designdir) directory of the web application (see the WAS namespace for this value).
The second (tcr3.zip) is a report design pack for installation into TCR 1.1.1. It can be installed by using TCR's standard import tool. This involves (1) logging into TCR with the tcradmin account, (2) expanding 'Tivoli Common Reporting' in the left pane, (3) clicking on 'Work with reports', (4) right-clicking on 'Report sets' then (5) choosing 'Import report package' to import the reports. In the dialog that appears, you will need to (6) navigate to the location of the report design pack, (7) select 'Overwrite' from the advanced tab, then (8) click on 'Import'.
The third (tdszgen3.zip) contains the tdszgen tool and the configuration file that was used to build the sample report designs in pretcr3.zip and tcr3.zip. Full details on the use of tdszgen can be found in the tdszgen.txt file within tdszgen3.zip. It does not cover the process of importing those reports into Eclipse and generating a report design pack for import into TCR as this is covered in the TCR documentation.
Customers are strongly encouraged to migrate to the TCR format as all new functionality will be provided in that component rather than pre-TCR web reporting. Users who have migrated their own report designs to the tdszgen tool from report pack 2 should have a seamless transition to the TCR format as the tdszgen included in report pack 3 produces both pre-TCR and TCR format.
