Course Overview

Top

Learn how to write application programs that use Data Language One (DL/I) to process Information Management System (IMS) databases.

Course Schedule

Target Audience

Top

This is an intermediate course for individuals who write programs in Common Business Oriented Language (COBOL), or Programming Language One (PL/I), or Assembler language using DL/I to navigate through an process IMS databases.

Course Objectives

Top
  • Describe the basic differences between files and IMS databases as they relate to application program coding and logic
  • Describe the terms and processing characteristics of IMS hierarchic data structures
  • Construct DL/I calls for either COBOL or PL/I language programs
  • Write, test and debug a batch application program that uses the DL/I call functions
  • 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
