Abstract

This article describes how to provide Address Space initialization in OfficeVision*/MVS (OV/MVS). The OV/MVS Office environment requires address space initialization before Office Servers can execute in the address space. This initialization includes creation of a local Office Control Block and local Persistent Storage Mechanism (PSM). This initialization must be carried out in every address space, regardless of which Office Component will execute. The platform must provide the initialization, so that each Component does not have to either determine if initialization has been done, or do the initialization itself.

Office Address Space Initialization by Application Request Handler

      This article describes how to provide Address Space
initialization in OfficeVision*/MVS (OV/MVS). The OV/MVS Office
environment requires address space initialization before Office
Servers can execute in the address space. This initialization
includes creation of a local Office Control Block and local
Persistent Storage Mechanism (PSM). This initialization must be
carried out in every address space, regardless of which Office
Component will execute. The platform must provide the initialization,
so that each Component does not have to either determine if
initialization has been done, or do the initialization itself.

      The solution to this problem of address space initialization is
to provide initialization through the Application Request Handler
(ARH).  The ARH is the platform component which provides the
communication interface. Therefore, it is the first module invoked
when a conversation begins. It is responsible for receiving the
allocation of the conversation, determining which Office component is
being requested, loading that Office component, getting the first
piece of the request, and handing it to the component. Before it
receives the allocation, the ARH does address space initialization.
The address space initialization will provide both location and
initialization of the local Office control block, and loading and
initialization of the local Persistent Storage Mechanism (PSM). ...
