Hello,

Deploying code is known by multiple names on the mainframe - the customization and use of each is quite site-specific.

The entire range of source management and configuration management may be part of "code deployment". The mechanics used are quite different from site to site. Some organizations use 2 tiers - test and prodution. Some use development, test, user acceptance, production, and an "emergency repair" tier.

In all of these, code is written/changed at the lowest level and then "promoted" to the next level (unless dealing with an emergency on a system that provides an emergency repair environment).

This is not like Windows and Visual Source Safe or Team Foundation Services, though many of the goals are similar.
Hope this helps,
d.sch.
