This book is really a prerequisite for the IDMS BATCH COBOL book below. You need to have a good overall understanding of the IDMS before beginning to code specific IDMS programming statements.
A 50 page reference to programming IDMS with batch COBOL. Includes the DML Preprocessor and precompiler options, IDMS Retrieval Commands (OBTAIN CALC, OBTAIN Next, OBTAIN using, etc…), IDMS Update Commnands (STORE, ERASE, MODIFY, CONNECT, DISCONNECT), other DML Commands (BIND, READY, FINISH, ROLLBACK, COMMIT). (You can order this book below).
This book will teach a programmer all the statement necessary to write efficient batch COBOL report programs and update programs.
Prerequisite: This book assumes prior knowledge of COBOL.
A 205 page Introduction to ADS tutorial.
This books takes an IDMS Batch COBOL programmer and teaches and walks him or her through building IDD map/work records, using the MAPC task to build maps, and the ADSC task to build dialogs. Five sample programs are built step by step.
1) a simple inquiry from the EMPLOYEE database. 2) adds features such as scrolling. 3) uses an INCLUDE statement to share database navigation code. 4) A menu program demonstrates LINK/INVOKE/TRANSFER concepts. 5) a simple update program.
Discusses: Batch Utilities such as ADSOBCOM, Batch Mapping Utilities, DCMT/DCUF, UCF/Batch, IDD Menu, and DME (Dictionary Module Editor).
Prerequisite: This book assumes prior knowledge of programming, IDMS Fundamentals, and DML Commands.
Limitations: Does not cover advanced topics such as Scratch/Queue records or pageable maps.
