Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section Introduction

This suite of programs provides an example of how a mainline application processes a VSAM, KSDS or Indexed File containing Name, Address information and creates a sorted (by postal code sequence) file containing mailing labels that are formatted with four labels across of six lines for each label. The program has the ability to print 1,2, 3 or 4 across labels. This example uses a two-dimensional array to build the label-printing output. The COBOL programs are written using the COBOL/2 dialect but also work with COBOL for MVS and COBOL/370. JCL members are provided to run the jobs as MVS batch jobs on an IBM mainframe or within a project with Micro Focus Mainframe Express (MFE) running on a PC with Windows. CMD members are provided to run on a PC in the Net Express environment. SimoTime also provides pre-defined project files for Mainframe Express and/or Net Express.

Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section Programming Input and Output

The input for this example is a VSAM, Keyed-Sequential-Data-Set (KSDS) or Indexed file. The output is a sequential (or line sequential) file with the records formatted to print 1, 2, 3 or 4 across mailing labels.

This suite of samples programs will run on the following platforms.

Number Description
1 Executes on Windows/XP and Windows/7 using Micro Focus Mainframe Express and the JCL members provided.
2 Executes on Windows/XP and Windows/7 using Micro Focus Net Express and the CMD files provided.
3 Executes on Windows Server using Micro Focus Enterprise Server and the JCL members provided.
4 May be ported to run on the UNIX platforms supported by Micro Focus COBOL.
  Operating Systems and Micro Focus Sub-Systems for Quality Assurance Testing

This suite of programs uses a Customer Master File as input. The Customer Master file contains variable length records with the minimum and average record length being the same length of 512 bytes. The key starts in the first position of the record and is 12 bytes in length. The record layout is defined in a COBOL copy file and contains text strings and various numeric formats including zoned-decimal, packed and binary.

Check out  How to Create and Populate a Customer Master File for the Development and Testing environments.  This suite of programs will allow the user to determine the number of records to be added to the Customer Master File.

Overview of Application for Printing Mailing Labels

Color Associations: The  light-green  boxes are unique to the Mainframe and Micro Focus Enterprise Server/Studio (or Micro Focus Mainframe Express). The  light-red  boxes are unique to a Windows System and Micro Focus technologies. The  light-yellow  boxes are 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 CMD Files, Execute a Job

This section contains two examples. Each example is a four-step job. The first step is housekeeping to clean up files left from a previous execution of this job. The second step will read the customer master file and create a sequential file of mailing label information. The third step will sort the sequential file and create a new sequential file in postal code sequence. The fourth and final step will print mailing labels.

Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section Extract, SORT and Print

The following (STAMLRE1.cmd) is a sample of the Windows CMD needed to run this job on a PC in a non-Mainframe environment using Micro Focus Net Express. This command file will produce a file formatted for 4-across mailing labels. The sorting is by postal code and uses a SORT Utility program to do the sort.

The following (STAMLRE2.cmd) is a sample of the Windows CMD needed to run this job on a PC in a non-Mainframe environment using Micro Focus Net Express. This command file will produce two files. The first file (MAILTEXT.TXT) will be formatted for 4-across mailing labels. The second file (MAILTXT1.TXT) will be formatted for 1-across mailing labels. The sorting is by postal code and uses a COBOL program to do the callable sort.

Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section JCL Members, Execute a Job

This section contains two examples. Each example is a four-step job. The first step is housekeeping to clean up files left from a previous execution of this job. The second step will read the customer master file and create a sequential file of mailing label information. The third step will sort the sequential file and create a new sequential file in postal code sequence. The fourth and final step will print mailing labels.

The following is the mainframe JCL (STAMLRJ1.jcl) required to run as an MVS batch job on the mainframe. This will also run on the PC with Micro Focus Mainframe Express. This JCL member will produce a file formatted for 4-across mailing labels. The sorting is by postal code and uses a SORT Utility program to do the sort.

The following is the mainframe JCL (STAMLRJ2.jcl) required to run as an MVS batch job on the mainframe. This will also run on the PC with Micro Focus Mainframe Express. This JCL member will produce two files. The first file (MAILTEXT.TXT) will be formatted for 4-across mailing labels. The second file (MAILTXT1.TXT) will be formatted for 1-across mailing labels. The sorting is by postal code and uses a COBOL program to do the callable sort.

This section describes the executable COBOL programs, callable routines and the COBOL copy file used by the jobs that extract customer records, sort and print mailing labels.

Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section Omit PO Box Addresses

This program (STAMLRC1.cbl) is a simple program that reads a VSAM, Keyed-Sequential-Data-Set (KSDS) and writes a sequential file. This program calls a routine to analyze the Street-Address field for a possible PO Box address. If the street address is a PO Box then the record is not written to the output file. Notice the "Z-DISPLAY-IO-STATUS" routine to display the file status code.

Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section Routine for Parsing a Data Buffer

This routine (SIMOPARS.cbl) is a simple, callable routine that reads scans a data buffer and provides the offset and length of keywords within the data buffer. The routine uses a space character as the delimiter. Leading spaces are ignored and embedded multiple spaces are treated as a single space. The routine uses Reference Modification to do the parsing.

      * This routine uses reference modification to identify the
      * position of the first significant character after the
      * delimiter character. This approach compensates for multiple
      * leading or embedded delimiter characters. The string function
      * of COBOL does not handle leading spaces.
      *
      * For example, if the delimiter character is a space then
      * leading spaces will be ignored and multiple, embedded spaces
      * will be treated as a single space.

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
