Your task will be complicated -- different vendors have different SMP/E data sets, so you cannot expect to get everything from one SMP/E query. You will probably have at least as many queries as SMP/E CSI files (some vendors store more than one product in a CSI, some store a single product per CSI). Furthermore, you almost certainly will NOT get license key data from SMP/E. Compuware, for example, uses a License Management System (LMS) which is entirely separate from SMP/E. CA uses a different licensing system but it, too, has nothing to do with SMP/E. Many product vendors tie their license key to the CPC serial number, but there are many, many, many ways to do this. And some vendors do not install through SMP/E (I used to support Trend Micro on a z/Architecture box, and its installation process started by putting a CD into your PC and transferring binary data files to the mainframe).
