The DTXMPULD utility

In addition to loading maps into the KSDS, where maps are stored for use in the z/OS CICS region as described above, the DTXMPULD utility has the capability of listing and deleting maps from the KSDS map.

The command syntax is as follows:

DELETE=map_name_or_mask
LIST=map_name_or_mask

Either or both of these can be used in combination with the INPUT command that specifies maps to be loaded into the VSAM KSDS.

The parameter map_name_or_mask can be used to specify a single map or a collection of maps if you use the wildcard character *. For example, DELETE=MAPA will delete only MAPA from the KSDS map. DELETE=MAPA* deletes all maps with names beginning with MAPA. LIST=* lists all maps stored in the VSAM dataset. DELETE=* deletes all maps.

To use either the DELETE or LIST, the DDNAME MAPKSDS must identify the map KSDS:

//MAPKSDS DD DSN=map_KSDS,DISP=SHR

If the INPUT command is not used, no output is generated for loading into the map KSDS. Consequently, the SORT and REPRO steps of the DTXCI JCL should not be executed.
