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

Skills Gained

  • 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

Who Can Benefit

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.

Our instructor Mohammad Meimandi was a great resource. He helped clarify a lot of concepts. Overall I liked the Quiklabs as they offered a great hands-on experience to drive the concepts.

Very detailed training.Effective for Devops with cloud responsibilities.The Tech explanation and lab is very informative.

thorough course covering materials needed to understand aws, architecture, and their interactions. Labs helped

I can only say Thank You for persisting - following up and getting me into this class. Well spent 20-25 hours

This is my second class with this Tech Data ExitCertified Personnel. I learned so much in BigFix Foundations and BigFix Inventory. Very well organized training instructors and well organized course contents and labs. I am glad I have attended.
