IBM SPECIAL DELIVERY REQUIRED COURSE: This ISDR course cannot be scheduled without IBM approval. If interested in this course, please contact your Local training Administrator.Learn how to write application programs that use Data Language One (DL/I) to process terminal input and output messages in an Information Management System / Data Communications (IMS/DC) system.
You should:complete: IMS Fundamentals (CM010) orIMS Fundamentals -Web (CMW01) IMS DB Application Programming (U3717)or be able to: Describe the basic control and flow of IMS/DC communications facilitiesUnderstand the DL/I components and calls of a database application programModify a program in COBOL or PL/I to add IMS/DC functions
This intermediate course is for individuals responsible for writing programs in Common Business Oriented Language (COBOL), or Programming Language One (PL/I) using DL/I to communicate with terminals in an IMS/DC system.
Modify an IMS batch DL/I application program to function in an IMS/DC environment: receiving a message from a terminal and sending output messages to terminals Handle the exception conditions that may occur using DL/I functions Work with Scratch Pad Areas (SPA) in an IMS-conversational program Understand the application program considerations in using Message Format Services (MFS) and the system service functions data structures, Systems w/TPS, Mainframe TPS, System Software TPS, z IT Service Management IMS Tools
