for Retrieving CA-IDMS Updates

ASG-DBOL (Database Online) is an online utility that dynamically retrieves and updates data on any IDMS database. With DBOL, you can issue IDMS commands (obtain, modify, erase, etc.) directly from your terminal. A component of this product, the DBOL/LRF (Logical Record Facility) tool will automatically format logical records for you. 

DBOL assists with correcting database problems and generating test cases to debug and troubleshoot programs more efficiently. With this true, menu-driven facility, you'll no longer need to remember data manipulation language (DML) command syntax for IDMS database problem solving and testing. DBOL populates a handful of test records and inspects the results of the test runs or patches the data back to its original state.

Differentiators

  • Provides a list of sign-on/bind profiles via the DBOL menu facility.

  • Quickly sets up small test databases so you can change data online for retesting purposes.

  • Quickly accesses data for problem resolution, test data creation, database correction, and validation.

  • Provides easy-to-use, menu-driven capabilities that allow you to make selections without having to remember or enter a required subschema, record, set, or area name and enables you to view the syntax of the operation being performed.

Benefits

  • Provides masking characters for selecting and listing queue names to delete, over-type, and modify individual queue records.

  • Employs user-defined PF keys and multiple PF key profiles available across session boundaries.
