Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section Introduction

This suite of sample programs describes how to use COBOL to load a table with customer information and then sort the table using a bubble sort routine. The elements in the table will be sorted in postal code sequence.

The source code for the CMD file, the JCL member and the COBOL programs is provided and may be modified to fit your environment. The COBOL program will run on an IBM Mainframe System or in a Micro Focus environment on Windows.


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.

Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section Sample Routines

The intent of this section is to provide a summary of the sub-routines by function and a quick link to the sub-routines within the main program.

Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section Load the Table

This sub-routine will read a record sequential file of eighty-byte records and load each record into an element of an in-memory table. The table contains one-hundred (100) elements.

Click on this link to view the code in the program that does the Load the Table. This will be displayed in a separate window.

Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section Sort Table By Postal Code

Once the table is loaded it will be sorted based on the postal code value.

Click on this link to view the code in the program that does the Sort Table By Postal Code. This will be displayed in a separate window.

Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section Retrieve the Elements in the Table

Next, the table will be processed sequentially to produce a file of mailing labels in postal code sequence.

Click on this link to view the code in the program that will Sequentially Retrieve the Elements in the Table. This will be displayed in a separate window.

Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section Company Overview

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 or need assistance with converting non-relational data structures simply give us a call at 415 883-6565 or check the web site at http://www.simotime.com
