Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section Introduction

This program suite provides an example of how to delete and define a new Entry Sequenced Data Set (ESDS) using Mainframe JCL. Once the new ESDS is created a COBOL program is used to add records to the data set.


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 JCL Examples

This section will describe the two JCL members used in this example. The first JCL member will delete and define a new Entry Sequenced Data Set or ESDS. The second JCL member will execute a COBOL program that will add records to the data set.

Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section Define a New ESDS

The following (ES128CJ1.jcl) is a typical example of how to define a new ESDS using the IDCAMS utility program. This JCL member will create a new, empty ESDS.

Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section Add Records to an Existing ESDS

The following (ES128UJ1.jcl) is an example of how a COBOL program can be used to add records to an existing ESDS. The program will read a file of eighty byte records and write to an ESDS of 128 byte records. The trailing bytes are padded with spaces. The input is included instream in the JCL member.

This section describes additional technical details not covered in previous sections of this document.

Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section Compiler Options or Directives

This document provides information about how to specify and use the Micro Focus COBOL compiler directives that may be required to control program behavior in the Linux, UNIX or Windows environments in a manner compliant with the compiler options and subsequent execution on the Mainframe System.

Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section Alternate Compiler Directives for ESD128C0

The following compiler directives were used to compile the ESD128C0 program.

DIALECT"OS390"
CHARSET"ASCII"
ASSIGN"EXTERNAL"
IBMCOMP
NOTRUNC
HOSTNUMMOVE
HOSTNUMCOMPARE
NOSIGNFIXUP
HOSTARITHMETIC
CHECKNUM
filetype"15"
ANIM
NOOPTIONAL-FILE
outdd"SYSOUT 121 L"
SHARE-OUTDD
DATAMAP
settings
list()
noform

Note:  The FILETYPE"15" will enable a COBOL program to process a VSAM, ESDS (Entry-Sequenced-Data-Set). A FILETYPE"16" compiler directive would enable a COBOL program to process extended VSAM, ESDS's (Entry-Sequenced-Data-Sets).

Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section Summary

The purpose of this example is to show how to create and use a VSAM, Entry Sequenced Data Set (ESDS). This document may be used to assist as a tutorial for new programmers or as a quick reference for experienced programmers.

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
