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:
Describe the basic control and flow of IMS/DC communications facilities
Understand the DL/I components and calls of a database application program
Modify a program in COBOL or PL/I to add IMS/DC functions
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.
