ADS Application Design Reference
This topic is designed for those individuals responsible for designing and developing online applications in a CA ADS environment. A methodology is presented to cover the design process and the implementation of a design in an application prototype.
The Application Development System (CA ADS) is a tool used to expedite the writing and testing of modular applications. Activities such as flow-of-control processing, data storage definition, data verification, editing, error handling, terminal input and output, menu creation, and menu display are specified by using a series of screens instead of conventional detailed code.
ADS Alive Browse Commands
This section provides a section to the browse commands that are available at the Animation Setup Edit screen and the Animation Runtime Edit screen. This section describes each command and its syntax.
ADS Alive Commands
This section describes the CA ADS Alive commands, and is divided into the following five sections:
ADS Batch Process Command Language
Application Development System process commands are entered using the IDD DDDL compiler and are stored as process modules. A process module can be used in both online and batch dialogs. Some commands, such as DISPLAY, can be executed only in the online environment, while others, such as WRITE TRANSACTION, can be executed only in the batch environment.
ADS DSECT Reference
This section serves as a comprehensive reference for all major DSECTs occurring in the CA ADS environment.
CA Culprit for CA IDMS Reference
CA Culprit for CA IDMS is a batch utility that generates reports and tables from conventional and database files.
CA Culprit User Modules
This section provides information about:
CA Endevor/DB for CA IDMS Batch Reference
This section contains product descriptions, information about features, coding conventions, syntax, batch execution JCL, and reference material for CA Endevor/DB and CA Endevor/DB Batch.

Concepts and Facilities Reference
In today's highly sophisticated CA IDMS environment, managing development activities and operations can be extremely complex and unpredictable. Hundreds of environmental changes are evaluated, tested and implemented monthly, sometimes weekly, to keep up with growing business demands. Until now, many software management tasks have been performed manually. Given the sheer volume and complexity of present-day CA IDMS environments, however, manual software management methodologies are becoming less feasible in terms of accuracy, reliability and attainment of audit requirements. The only viable solution is one in which an automated, integrated approach is applied to all stages of software management.
Dictionary Structure Reference
This section describes the dictionary database records, including record elements and set relationships, used by CA IDMS system software and can be used in conjunction with the CA IDMS Dictionary Diagram.
DML Reference for Assembler
This section presents navigational and LRF DML statements for use in CA IDMS/DB and CA IDMS/DC. CA IDMS UCF data communications environments are also discussed.
DML Reference for COBOL
This section contains reference material for writing applications programs in the COBOL language to use CA IDMS/DB, CA IDMS/DC, and CA IDMS UCF services.
DML Reference for PL/I
This topic describes the LRF DML statements in CA IDMS/DB database and CA IDMS/DC and CA IDMS UCF data communication environments. Most data communication DML statements apply to CA IDMS/DC and CA IDMS UCF (DC/UCF) environments.
This section is intended to serve as a comprehensive reference for all major DSECTs occurring in the CA IDMS/DB and CA IDMS/DC environment.
IDD DDDL Reference
This section is the primary source of information about using Data Dictionary Definition Language (DDDL) to populate and maintain dictionaries. Information about DDDL syntax, coding considerations, and DDDL compiler options is provided. Information about entering statements using the online compiler and the Integrated Data Dictionary (IDD) menu facility is also provided.
CA IDMS System Tasks and Operator Commands
This section describes system tasks and operator commands that you can use to perform a variety of support services for your CA IDMS/DC or CA IDMS UCF system. Except where specifically noted, these tasks and commands are applicable to both DC and UCF (DC/UCF).
This section describes the capabilities of the CA IDMS Mapping Facility and serves as a reference tool for the CA IDMS applications developer in designing maps.
CA IDMS Masterkey is a task initiation control facility for CA IDMS/DC. By controlling the invocation of tasks, the developer or database administrator can save keystrokes, streamline work flow, and provide a certain amount of security in the CA IDMS environment. CA IDMS Masterkey provides this efficiency by:
Online Log Display Reference
CA IDMS Online Log Display is a tool that gives CA IDMS/DC and DC/UCF users online access to a full-screen display of run-time events recorded in the log.
View information about using the utilities.
CA Online Query for CA IDMS
CA Online Query (CA OLQTM) is a query tool and report writer used to retrieve information from a CA IDMS/DB database or other external files.
CA IDMS SQL enables SQL access to existing CA IDMS databases, with no need for migration or replication.
