Seven Ages of an IDMS Application

    Hello all,

    In 2004 at the UKIUA Roadshow, Geoff Richardson (British Telecom) gave
    this
    presentation. At the end, it talks about how an IDMS application can
    become
    near 'impossible' to decommission/convert. Specifically, it says that
    the
    difficulty is compounded if you use all the features of IDMS. Our
    Developers were very happy when I mentioned this :-)

    However, as we know, many shops have successfully moved off IDMS.

    I would love to hear some feedback on this, especially with regard to
    the
    things that we should ""not do"", so that it will be not difficult to
    migrate
    off IDMS. I'll advise our Developers to ""not do that stuff..."" ha ha ha

    PS: We do not use the SQL option, and neither do we use any of the CA
    web
    interface options.

    Thanks very much.

    Mike.

    Location of sample hot backup process
    "Dear friends,



    Reviewing the archives of the list, I have found several references to a
    example hot backup process called BATCHCP or ONLINECP. I am trying to
    track this down. I had thought that it was in the contributed software
    library in the IDMS UA site, but it is not there.



    Can anyone point me to this.

    Module length report
    "Does anyone have a CULRPIT report that lists dictionary modules (not
    load modules) and their lengths?

    Re: Module length report
    "You could look at the dialog load moddule sizes to get some idea of
    larger module source code.
