IMS DB Application Programming

( Duration: 3 Days )

In IMS DB Application Programming training course, you will learn to write application programs that use Data Language One (DL/I) to process Information Management System (IMS) databases.

By attending IMS DB Application Programming workshop, delegates will learn to:

  • Describe the basic differences between files and IMS databases as you relate to application program coding and logic
  • Describe the terms and processing characteristics of IMS hierarchic data structures
  • Construct DL/I calls for COBOL or PL/I language programs
  • Write, test, and debug a batch application program that uses the DL/I call function
  • Use the IMS Test Program to prototype application program calls, and to perform ad-hoc read and update access to an IMS database
  • Describe the applications and uses of other DL/I features
  • Program for recovery and restart, using DL/I calls to establish synchronization points
  • Describe the functions provided by High Availability Large Database (HALDB), and any program differences when accessing a Full Function database or a HALDB

Be able to:

  • List the basic components of the IMS database system
  • Construct a non-DL/I application program in COBOL or PL/I

This IMS DB Application Programming class is designed for individuals who write programs in Common Business Oriented Language (COBOL), or Programming Language One (PL/I) using DL/I to process IMS databases.
