CPExpert Product Update 2002-1
This product update forwards updates to both software and documentation. The software update is Release 12.1 of CPExpert. The release number indicates that it is the first release of 2002.
This release (1) provides support for z/OS Version 1 Release 3 (V1R3), (2) provides updated documentation on CD-ROM, and (3) corrects errors that have been reported. However, the primary focus during the update cycle has been on updates to the CICS Component and the DASD Component.
There is no additional charge for the CD-ROM versions of CPExpert documentation. If any user does not have the capability to access documentation on CD-ROM (or simply prefers to have hard-copy documentation), please send me a note.
I really appreciate calls from users reporting problems or simply asking questions. As I said in the original delivery letter for CPExpert, if errors occur with your installation, please don't waste your time trying to solve the error. Just give me a call and I will quickly fix the problem!

PLEASE NOTE: I have designed the logic and much of the coding to analyze performance problems with CICS Coupling Facility Data Tables (CFDT) and CICS Named Counters. I need test data from users to incorporate this analysis into CPExpert. If any user is using CFDT or Named Counters, please send test data to me and I will make that analysis available in the October release of CPExpert. Thanks!
I suggest that you use the following steps to install Release 12.1:
Create a new PDS titled "prefix.CPEXPERT.V121.SOURCE".
Create a new PDS titled "prefix.CPEXPERT.V121.USOURCE".
Install CPExpert into the "prefix.CPEXPERT.V121.SOURCE" using the normal installation procedures described in the CPExpert Installation Guide.
Copy your old USOURCE members into "prefix.CPEXPERT.V121.USOURCE". This step should be done so you do not have to recreate all of your unique parameters. There are no changes to the variables in USOURCE members, unless you are exercising new options provided with this code.
