Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section Introduction

This example will use IEBGENER to create a sequential file. This file will be used by IDCAMS to populate a VSAM, KSDS. The KSDS will then be copied to a sequential file with variable length records. The first file created will then be compared to the last file created using a COBOL program. This example includes JCL members and a COBOL program. In the world of programming there are many ways to solve a problem. This suite of programs is provided as one of the many possible solutions for data file format conversion and comparison.

The files used in this suite of sample programs use fixed length records of eighty-bytes or variable length records with a maximum record length of eighty bytes. When the files are compared and if a difference is found the COBOL compare program will call SIMOHEX4.CBL and SIMOLOGS.CBL. These programs and their associated copy files are part of the SIMOMODS package.


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.

The following (DATFMTC1.cbl) is a sample of the COBOL demonstration program that will compare the contents of two data files. This COBOL program was generated by the SimoZaps utility program from SimoTime Technologies. It will compare the contents of a record sequential file with fixed length records to the contents of a record sequential file with variable length records.

Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section Summary

The purpose of this suite of programs is to provide examples of how to create, copy and compare various data files and VSAM Data Sets using JCL, IEBGENER, IDCAMS and a COBOL program. The 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 document and the links to other documents are intended to provide a greater awareness of the Data Management and Application Processing alternatives.

The 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.

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 simply give us a call or check the web site at http://www.simotime.com
