Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section Introduction

This suite of programs provides an example of how a single mainline COBOL program accesses a VSAM data set. The COBOL program is written using COBOL/2 dialect but also works with COBOL for MVS, COBOL/370 and COBOL for 390. Job scripts are provided to run this suite of programs on a variety of system configurations.

JCL members are provided to run the jobs as MVS or ZOS batch jobs on an IBM Mainframe System or as a project with Micro Focus Mainframe Express (MFE) running on a Windows System.

Windows Command files are provided to run the jobs as batch jobs on a Windows System using Micro Focus COBOL technology.

Bash script files are provided to run the jobs as batch jobs on a Linux System using GnuCOBOL technology. SimoTime uses Ubuntu 16.04 LTS for a Linux development and Testing environment.

The programs to create the test data files are included in this suite of programs. This program may serve as a tutorial for programmers that are new to COBOL or VSAM and as a reference for experienced programmers.


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.

Color Associations: The  light-green  boxes are unique to SIMOTIME Technologies using the Mainframe and Micro Focus Enterprise Server/Studio (or Micro Focus Mainframe Express). The  light-red  boxes are unique to the SIMOTIME Technologies using a Linux, UNIX or Windows System and COBOL Technologies such as Micro Focus. The  light-yellow  boxes are SIMOTIME Technologies, Third-party Technologies, decision points or program transitions in the processing logic or program generations. The  light-blue  boxes identify the input/output data structures such as Documents, Spreadsheets, Data Files, VSAM Data Sets or Relational Tables. The  light-gray  boxes identify a system function or information item.

Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section Program Input and Output

The input for this job is a Customer Master File. The Customer Master File is a VSAM/KSDS or Indexed File. The record length is eighty (80) bytes. The key length is six (6) bytes starting at position one (1) of each record. As each record is read the record content is displayed on the System Console or piped to a SYSOUT file.

Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section Job Scripts

A job script may be defined as a text file containing job setup information followed by job steps that identify programs to be executed along with parameters unique to the job step. A job script may be created using a text editor. The naming of a job script is determined by the Operating System. A simple job script may contain a single job step that performs a single function. A typical job script will contain multiple job steps executed in a predefined sequence. The status of each job step may be tested at the end of each job step.

This suite of programs will create various files containing customer data. The customer data is arranged in 80 byte records and the customer number (or key) is 6 bytes starting in the first position of each record.

This Windows CMD file (CBLVSME8.cmd) will use the Windows ECHO Command to create an ASCII/Text (or Line Sequential) file. The ASCII/Text file will then be used to create an ASCII-encoded sequential file and an EBCDIC-encoded sequential file. The ASCII-encoded sequential file will be used to create an ASCII-encoded VSAM Key-Sequenced-Data-Set (KSDS).

rem  * This procedure uses the Microsoft "ECHO" command to pipe instream

rem  *
rem  * LSEQ - a Line Sequential File or ASCII/Text File
rem  * RSEQ - a Record Sequential File. This example uses a file of

rem  * KSDS - a VSAM Key-Sequenced-Data-Set.
rem  *
rem  * 1. Use the Windows "ECHO" Create an LSEQ file to be used as input to

rem  * 2. Read the LSEQ file and write an RSEQ, ASCII File.
rem  * 3. Read the LSEQ file and write an RSEQ, EBCDIC File.
rem  * 4. Read the RSEQ, ASCII file and write a KSDS, ASCII File.

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
