Compuware Workbench
We are implementing Compuware Workbench in our programmer community and would be interested in other's experience with the product. One concern is as the amount of users start using the product how does the HCI address space on the mainframe behave.

RE:Compuware Workbench
Compuware's HCI has been around for over fifteen years, serving as the communications server for multi-platform Compuware products that have both mainframe and distributed components. From it's inception, performance, scalability, and reliability have been top priorities.
As the most mature single component of the Compuware Workbench, it has been "wear hardened" over the years. You should not have any problems with the HCI as you deploy to your user community. If you do, or if you experience any other issues with the Compuware Workbench, then please contact us at: CPWRWorkbenchSup@compuware.com

RE:Compuware Workbench
That's good to know that it has been around that long. What we are interested in is when programmers start using this in place of TSO how to manage the HCI address space's resources in regards to other work in the system. Typically with TSO you have periods where you can manage them closer. With this there are no periods. Since you are a Compuware employee maybe this and other type questions of this nature would best be handled offline. So far we are very excited about this product and the intent of this thread is not to knock it but to get other users experiences with the product.
