Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

If you're a COBOL programmer who is just starting to work on an IBM mainframe, this book shows you how to work with VSAM files. These are mainframe versions of the sequential, indexed, and relative files of standard COBOL. To work with them on a mainframe, though, you need to use extensions to the standards; the IBM codes for error processing; JCL to run the programs that use the files; and Access Method Services (AMS) to set up the files. This book shows you to use them all.

Synopsis:

If you're a COBOL programmer who is just starting to work with an IBM mainframe, this book shows you how to work with VSAM files. These are mainframe versions of COBOL's sequential, indexed, and relative files. To work with VSAM files, though, you need to know the IBM codes for error processing. You need to use JCL to run the programs that use the files. And you need to use Access Method Services (AMS) to set up the files.

If that's what you want to know, this is a useful book, even though it was published in 1989. I think a better alternative, though, is to add our Structured COBOL and OS/390 JCL books to your library. These books include the same information in updated form, and they're better references.
