How do you PTF ?  How do you determine if your system has the latest PTFs on it ?  There are several options of course! But not to go about things the easy way, lets toss a wrench in the mix... I want to see if my partition is on the latest PTFs, BUT, this partition does not have access to the Internet!  Now what ? Leveraging 3 part naming, you have a magic solution.  In this session we will be looking at using 3 part naming to build a 'service' that can call to the IBM Service Planning Web Page, and compare to the list of PTFs currently on your partition and show you what missing.
