Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section Introduction

The primary objective of this test case is to describe and demonstrate a process to transfer the application assets from a Mainframe System running ZOS to a Windows System running Micro Focus Enterprise Developer. The process should use existing technologies that are currently available on the mainframe system. Any system changes to the mainframe or the installation of additional software on the mainframe should be avoided.

A secondary objective is to describe and demonstrate how to transfer, convert and maintain the non-relational data structures used by the application. This includes the transfer and conversion of sequential files and VSAM Data Sets.

Note:  It is important to note the intent of Test Case 02 is not simply to do a one-time transfer of the application and data. The intent is to describe and demonstrate a low-cost, repeatable process that may be used as a model for transferring additional applications and data.

FTP is available on the mainframe to be used as the transfer methodology between the Mainframe and a Windows System.

The standard IBM Utility programs are available for data manipulation of the non-relational data structures. Third party products such as FileAid are not available.

After the transfer and conversion the non-relational data structures on the Windows System should conform to the Micro Focus File or Data formats.
 
1. Using FTP as the transfer method describe the process for transferring all the EBCDIC-encoded members in a partitioned data set (PDS) from the mainframe System to ASCII-encoded files in a folder on a Windows System.
2. Using FTP as the transfer method describe the process for transferring an EBCDIC-encoded record sequential file from a Mainframe System to an ASCII-encoded record sequential file that is accessible on a Windows System with Micro Focus Enterprise Server.
2.1. The tasks within the transfer and conversion processes should be scripted and have the capability to execute in an automated and unattended environment.
2.2. The record sequential file may contain packed and/or binary data.
3. Using FTP as the transfer method describe the process for transferring an EBCDIC-encoded VSAM/KSDS from a Mainframe System to an ASCII-encoded Data Set that is accessible on a Windows System with Micro Focus Enterprise Server.

Test Case 02 is a series of tasks with the execution divided between the Mainframe System and the Windows System. The 1st task is performed on the Mainframe System and will use the standard IEBPTPCH Utility program to unload members from a PDS into a sequential file that will be transferred via FTP. The 2nd task is performed on the Windows System and will use FTP to get the sequential file from the Mainframe System to the Windows System. The 3rd task is performed on the Windows System and will read the sequential file and write multiple members into a Windows Folder.


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 Items Provided with Test Case 02

Test Case 02 (TC02) includes a suite of application assets that are stored in Partitioned Data Sets (PDS's) on a ZOS Mainframe System.

1. Application Assets
1.1. A suite of Partitioned Data Sets (PDS's) that exist on the Mainframe System.
1.2. Availability of FTP on a Mainframe System and a Windows System for doing file transfers.
1.3. Availability of the standard IBM Utility programs on a Mainframe System. This includes SORT, IEFBR14, IEBGENER, IEBPTPCH, IDCAMS and more.
2. Non-Relational Data Structures
2.1. A Record Sequential File (TESTCASE.TC01.TC01XFER.dat) that was created on the Mainframe System using IDCAMS/REPRO to create an EBCDIC-encoded, Record Sequential file from the original VSAM/KSDS. This was done in order to use FTP in BINARY mode to transfer the file. This RSEQ file may be used to re-create the VSAM/KSDS in the Micro Focus environment.
2.2. A Record Sequential File (TESTCASE.TC01.TC01ZOS2.dat) that is a copy of the Phone List File that was created by the extract step that reads the VSAM/KSDS. This file is to be used as part of a compare process after Text Case 01 is executed in the Micro Focus environment.

Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section Items to be Created by Test Case 02

A "Prepare" process (or System Configuration) must be performed to set environment variables, create a directory structure, configure a Micro Focus Server Instance and create the utility programs that will do various data file converts and compares. The following is a list of the tasks.

1. System Preparation
1.1. Create a process to set the necessary Environment Variables.
1.2. Create a directory structure to support a development environment.
1.3. Configure a Micro Focus batch server instance that will run Test Case 01 using ASCII-encoded, non-relational data structures. Describe and demonstrate how this is accomplished.
2. Utility Programs and Processes
2.1. Create a repeatable conversion process for the non-relational data structures used in Test Case 01. This repeatable process should serve as a model for converting other non-relational data structures. The conversion process should run in a development, test and production environment on a ZOS Mainframe or a Linux, UNIX or Windows System using Micro Focus Enterprise Server. Describe and demonstrate how this is accomplished.
2.1.1. Create a batch job using a Windows command file that will convert the EBCDIC-encoded Record Sequential File (TESTCASE.TC01.TC01XFER.dat) to an ASCII-encoded VSAM/KSDS.
2.1.2. Create a batch job using a Windows command file that will convert the EBCDIC-encoded Record Sequential File (TESTCASE.TC01.TC01ZOS2.dat) to an ASCII-encoded Record Sequential File.
2.2. Create a batch job using a JCL Member that will process the ASCII-encoded VSAM/KSDS and create a Record Sequential (RSEQ) phone list file that is sorted using an EBCDIC collating sequence.
2.3. Create a batch job using a Windows Command File that will process the ASCII-encoded VSAM/KSDS (that has packed numeric fields) and create a Line Sequential (LSEQ or ASCII/Text) phone list file that has a Comma-Separated-Values (CSV) record structure.
2.4. Create a batch job using a Windows Command File that will compare the phone list file created on the mainframe with the phone list file created in the Micro Focus environment.
3. Documentation
3.1. Create documentation for the preceding items.
3.2. The documentation should be easily viewed from devices that have browser capability.

Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section Execution Tasks

The original test case consisted of one job (a JCL member and a JCL/PROC member) that executed a COBOL program and the SORT utility program. The test case is currently executed on a ZOS Mainframe System that is an EBCDIC-encoded environment.

The test case has been expanded and now includes a second JCL member that is expected to execute on an LUW System using Micro Focus and configured for an ASCII-encoded environment. The JCL member includes a set of sort specifications that will sort the ASCII-encoded output file into and EBCDIC collating sequence.

The original and expanded test case components were migrated to a Windows/7 System with Micro Focus Enterprise Server (this includes both Enterprise Studio and Enterprise Developer). The COBOL program was compiled in the new environment and the JCL was submitted to the Micro Focus Server and executed as expected.

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.
