Static PSBs

Static PSBs are existing PSBs generated by the database administrator.

Advantages of using a static PSB

  • It is easier to exclude segments from processing.
  • Processing options (PROCOPTs) can be used to limit the update capability of the user.
  • They are easily secured.
  • The PSB is available for use if Batch Backout is required.

Disadvantages of using a static PSB

  • A database administrator must generate the PSB.

IMS system considerations for BMP support

If you plan to use a static PSB to access an IMS™ subsystem in BMP mode, you must:
  • Include an APPLCTN macro statement for the PSB in the system definition.
  • Perform an ACBGEN for the PSB.
