CA IDMS provides callable services and common facilities to use with your application programs.
The callable services include:
  • The IDMSCALC utility that lets you sort input into target page sequence.
  • The IDMSIN01 facility that lets you perform miscellaneous CA IDMS functions.
  • The TCP/IP socket program interface that lets you communicate with another TCP/IP application.
The common facilities include:
  • The Command Facility that lets you submit command statements in a batch or online environment.
  • The Online Compiler Text Editor that lets you edit compiler output and resubmit it as input by using the CA IDMS development tools.
  • The Transfer Control Facility that lets you transfer between CA IDMS development tools.
  • The SYSIDMS parameter file that contains parameters that you can add to a batch job running in local mode or under the central version. These parameters let you specify environment requirements, runtime directives, and operating system-dependent information.
For more information about using these common facilities and the SYSIDMS parameter file, see Using Common Facilities.
