Learn how to write application programs that use Data Language One (DL/I) to process terminal input and output messages in an Information Management System / Data Communications (IMS/DC) system.
This intermediate course is for individuals responsible for writing programs in Common Business Oriented Language (COBOL), or Programming Language One (PL/I) using DL/I to communicate with terminals in an IMS/DC system.
Modify an IMS batch DL/I application program to function in an IMS/DC environment: receiving a message from a terminal and sending output messages to terminals
Handle the exception conditions that may occur using DL/I functions
Work with Scratch Pad Areas (SPA) in an IMS-conversational program
Understand the application program considerations in using Message Format Services (MFS) and the system service functions data structures
IMS Fundamentals (CM010) or IMS Fundamentals -Web (CMW01)
IMS DB Application Programming (U3717)
or be able to:
