This course provides theoretical and practical knowledge of the Advantage CA-Easytrieve Plus programming language for the IBM mainframe environment. Once the training course is complete, the programmer will immediately be able to develop and maintain CA-Easytrieve Plus programs in a live environment.
The course will include lectures given by the instructor, discussions within the class, and practical sessions where each delegate will write and test programs. The delegate's workbook includes all the lecture notes, practical exercise questions and spare notepaper.
By the end of this course, the delegate will be able to:
Understand the structure of a program.
Access data held in a variety of file and database formats.
Create simple and complex reports using automatic and controlled formatting.
Create extract files of various types.
Control the flow of processing in a structured way.
Create and use macro code.
Use the match/merge algorithm within the language.
Write, run and debug several programs.
This course is for all staff associated with applications development in the IBM zSeries Enterprise Server (z/OS) environment.
Before attending this course, the delegate should have an understanding of the development cycle in the IBM mainframe environment.
Familiarity with ISPF, SDSF and JCL would be an advantage, together with experience of a programming language, such as COBOL or PL/1.
If you need training for 3 or more people, you should ask us about onsite training. Putting aside the obvious location benefit, content can be customised to better meet your business objectives and more can be covered than in a public classroom. It's a cost effective option.
