ISPF dialog manager
The Interactive System Productivity Facility (ISPF) provides dialog management facilities for effectively developing and executing interactive applications in the MVS/TSO environment.
In this course participants learn:
- to build applications by means of dialog manager services;
- to define, test and use the different dialog functions and elements.
No public sessions are currently scheduled. We will be pleased to set up an on-site course or to schedule an extra public session (in case of a sufficient number of candidates). Interested? Please contact ABIS.
