Micro Focus Catalog
Accessing the CATALOG.DAT File
We have made a significant effort to ensure the documents and software technologies are correct and accurate. We reserve the right to make changes without notice at any time. The function delivered in this version is based upon the enhancement requests from a specific group of users. The intent is to provide changes as the need arises and in a timeframe that is dependent upon the availability of resources.

This utility program will list the contents of the CATALOG.DAT file that is used by Micro Focus Server for Mainframe Migration and Mainframe Express. The catalog file is a Micro Focus Key Sequence file. The catalog contains information for mapping MVS Data Set Names (DSN) to PC file names. The PC file names may be relative (based on where the CATALOG.DAT file is located) or absolute (drive:\directory\filename.ext) or it may be preceded with the name of a Micro Focus Fileshare Server ($$servername). This utility program provides a quick and simple way to list or hex dump the contents of the CATALOG.DAT file to an ASCII/Text file from a Windows Command. The list or hex dump file may be viewed with Notepad.

The following is an example of the output provided by the Catalog List function.
MFI01.SIMOPROD.PARMLIB1 C:\SIMOSAM1\PARMLIB1\ SIMOTIME.DATA.CUSTRSEQ
\DYN1\SIMOTIME.DATA.CUSTRSEQ.DAT SIMOTIME.DATA.CUSTMAST $$FSSERV01\C:\SIMOSAM1\DATALIBA\DYN1\SIMOTIME.DATA.CUSTMAST.DAT
In the preceding example the first line shows the use of an absolute reference to the PC File Name. The second line shows a relative reference to a PC file name. The third line shows a file that is managed by a Fileshare server name FSSERV01.
The following is an example of the output provided by the Catalog Dump function.
....+..010....+..020....+..030....+..040....+..050....+..060....+..070....+..080....+..090....+..100....+..110....+ 4443325444554425454444322222222222222222222222222222435544454435545444435222222222222222222222222222222222222222222 D6901E39DF02F4E012DC921000000000000000000000000000003AC39DF31D1C012DC921C000000000000000000000000000000000000000000 MFI01.SIMOPROD.PARMLIB1 C:\SIMOSAM1\PARMLIB1\
In the preceding example the first line is a position indicator. The second and third lines show the hexadecimal value and the fourth line shows the ASCII/Text value.
This section describes the command files used to execute the program that will read the CATALOG.DAT file and produce a listing or a dump of the records in the file.

The purpose of this utility program is to provide a listing of the contents of a Micro Focus CATALOG.DAT file in an ASCII/Text, CSV (Comma-Separated-Values) or HEX Dump format. This document may be used to assist as a tutorial for new programmers or as a quick reference for experienced programmers.
In the world of programming there are many ways to solve a problem. This documentation and software were developed and tested on systems that are configured for a SIMOTIME environment based on the hardware, operating systems, user requirements and security requirements. Therefore, adjustments may be needed to execute the jobs and programs when transferred to a system of a different architecture or configuration.

We appreciate hearing from you.
SimoTime Technologies was founded in 1987 and is a privately owned company. We specialize in the creation and deployment of business applications using new or existing technologies and services. We have a team of individuals that understand the broad range of technologies being used in today's environments. Our customers include small businesses using Internet technologies to corporations using very large mainframe systems.
Quite often, to reach larger markets or provide a higher level of service to existing customers it requires the newer Internet technologies to work in a complementary manner with existing corporate mainframe systems. We specialize in preparing applications and the associated data that are currently residing on a single platform to be distributed across a variety of platforms.
Preparing the application programs will require the transfer of source members that will be compiled and deployed on the target platform. The data will need to be transferred between the systems and may need to be converted and validated at various stages within the process. SimoTime has the technology, services and experience to assist in the application and data management tasks involved with doing business in a multi-system environment.
Whether you want to use the Internet to expand into new market segments or as a delivery vehicle for existing business functions simply give us a call or check the web site at http://www.simotime.com
