Comment
GSAM databases, which are sequential files.
You must modify DL/I application programs that issue calls to GSAM databases by removing the GSAM calls. Alternatively, you can replace the GSAM calls with standard sequential file processing requests.
The PCB PROCOPTs of L and LS.
You can obtain the same results by changing the L or LS to an I. This substitution is invalid when the application program is used in conjunction with the DL/I calls load utilities.
The PCB PROCOPT of GS.
You can obtain the same results by changing the GS to a G.
Field-level sensitivity in PCBs.
You can reflect field-level sensitivity by excluding the corresponding elements from their record type definitions in the subschema.
DL/I utilities.
CA IDMS/DB provides a complete set of utilities that perform all the necessary functions.
DL/I logging.
Remove calls for logging in the DL/I application / programs. CA IDMS/DB journaling is used in place of DL/I logging.
The CHECKPOINT/RESTART function.
However, CA IDMS DLI Transparency does support the checkpoint call when used alone. CA IDMS DLI Transparency honors the checkpoint call by issuing a CA IDMS/DB COMMIT. Therefore, remove all restart calls from the DL/I application program, and consider removing the checkpoint part of the call as well.
The DL/I calls:
PURG GSCD
CHGN XRS
CMD DEQ
GCMD LOG
SNAP STAT
The Q command code.
CA IDMS DLI Transparency bypasses this command code and returns a blank status. If a DL/I program contains Q codes, you don't have to remove them.
Use of the L command code to override a DL/I ISRT call.
CA IDMS DLI Transparency does support the L command code when used with a DL/I GET call.
Use of MPS Batch
EXEC DLI usage does not support MPS Batch
The EXEC DLI LOAD function
CA IDMS DLI Transparency supports call-level DL/I load programs using ISRT calls, and provides an independent load utility. An ‘AD’ status will be returned for this call.
