Next Virtual Meeting:

Date: 7 April 2020
Time: 10:30am Central Daylight Time
Title: Java and SQL in IMS for z/OS Applications
Abstract: COBOL is still very much in demand by companies that use COBOL for their daily operations. And while the number of COBOL experts around the world is still decreasing, these businesses still need new IMS applications, or to develop and update old ones. Studies have shown translating COBOL into Java can be less costly compared to writing everything from scratch. The speaker will show how to write a Java application in IDz to access your IMS data using SQL and cover the necessary setup requirements (IMS Catalog, IMS Connect).
