The following Z-Packs provide individual programming examples, documentation and test data files in a single package. The Z-Packs are usually in zip format to reduce the amount of time to download. The examples that are targeted for a mainframe (MVS or OS/390) will also run on the PC with Mainframe Express from Micro Focus. The COBOL examples are coded to the ANSI/85 standard and many have been tested on the PC using Net Express from Micro Focus. Some of the COBOL programs may be slightly modified to run on the AS/400. For example, the COMP is changed to BINARY.

Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section Shared Modules, SimoMODS Series

This group of Z-Packs and Utility Programs are a collection of modules that perform common tasks or repeatable processes for a variety of users that include application programmers, system programmers, developers and support personnel. Since the modules are used and/or shared across a number of applications and users they are referred to as the "shared modules" or "shared program members". The shared modules are divided into three (3) categories.

item Description
1 Callable Members or sub-routines, This group may have an Application or Data Orientation, the members in this category are usually callable sub-routines that perform common repeatable business or data related tasks.
2 Utility Programs, This group may have a Utilitarian Orientation, the items in this category focus on utilitarian task to assist development and support personnel to perform their daily tasks. These are usually stand alone programs that focus on a specific task or function.
3 Interface or Driver Programs, This group may have a System or Sub-System Orientation, the items in this category focus on the environment and the interaction of the various applications, sub-systems and the operating system.
  A brief Overview of the Categories for the Shared or Common Members

The program modules that are written in COBOL have been compiled with Micro Focus Net Express to create executable members. The executable members are intended for use in an ASCII-encoded environment and may be used with Net Express, Application Server or Enterprise Server running on a Microsoft Windows system. The program modules in the applications-oriented group have been ported (at the source code level) to UNIX, Linux, AS/400 and many were originally devloped and continue to run on an IBM Mainframe (both ZOS and VSE).
