Flat packing an IDMS database

  • 1.  Flat packing an IDMS database

    Posted 05-31-2007 06:43 AM
    Hi all,

    I am still looking for a solution that will flat pack an IDMS database
    prefereably to a readable file on a PC or UNIX and still make it
    readable if required. The organization I am working for will be getting
    off the mainframe (and IDMS) shortly. They are not migrating any of
    their archived data but there may be a sllight business/lagal need to
    gain access to that data.

    There is a strong preference for the solution to be 1. PC or UNIX based
    2. Not require a lot of programming to pump the data out 3. Quick to
    implement.

    I would be interested to hear any proposals/recommendations from vendors
    or IDMS0Lers with experience in this area.

    Cheers

    Re: lines of ADS code
    "My simple mind came up with a thought to punch out the dialog processes
    from the dictionary into a pds, then edit out the idd statements, and
    then look at the ISPF editor line count. Of course adso provides built
    in functionality that comes with the software from the vendor, and i
    dont know a way to count that. screen displays for example, would
    require many lines of code in CICS command level coding, that in
    adso/mapping would be done automagically. Ah, the beauty of IDMS.
