Zos VSAM GeoTax runtime libraries

Product Affected: GeoTax

Issue

Customers are wondering whether the SCEERUN and SCLBDLL remaining  in the in the LDVSAM library if they are still using them when running COBOL or should those libraries should be deleted from their JCL.

Resolution

UPDATED: November 13, 2019

The CBC.SCLBDLL library is obsolete, so it is not needed and can be removed.  The other C runtime (CEE.SCEERUN) is often defined to the system and therefore would not need to be specified in the STEPLIB.  If the job works without either, then their system knows how to find the runtime (it may not be named CEE.SCEERUN but doesn’t matter if the system knows where the C runtime is located).
