The basic design objectives for SPF can be summed up in one general objective, namely, to improve application development productivity by simplifying the development process. This is the reason for the renew name for SPF, the System Productivity Facility. Realistically, a single program cannot address the requirements for all applications, but SPF has taken a major step in providing a single cross-system capability that supports the development, testing, and execution of interactive applications. Initial reactions from users have been positive. They have confirmed that the new dialog manager provides many of these services they require and has simplified the development process. At the same time, they have suggested new features and enhancements that are currently under evaluaton as future objectives.
