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.

  Prerequisites

You should:


  • complete:

    • IMS Fundamentals (CM010) or IMS Fundamentals -Web (CMW01)
    • IMS DB Application Programming (U3717)


  • or be able to:

    • Describe the basic control and flow of IMS/DC communications facilities
    • Understand the DL/I components and calls of a database application program
    • Modify a program in COBOL or PL/I to add IMS/DC functions

  Short Summary

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.   Overview

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.

  Topic
