Hello,

at the moment we migrate our Cobol/IDMS, Cobol/DB2 and our ADSO
applications from Development environment to QA and
Production with a tool called Rainbow. It's a great tool but me might
need
to find another tool to replace it. We would like some
advice on tools with the same functionality. What do you use and what
does
it cost ?

Very Sad News
"It is with great sadness that I inform you that long time IDMS'er
Dave Lorenzen passed away this weekend.

I worked with Dave for many years at EDS and recently
when Dave was a member of the IUA board.
Dave was a great technician and a good person. He was always willing to
take time to give presentations at the IUA workshops and was a
regular contributor on the IDMS-L.

Dave will be sorely missed.

Terry Schwartz,
IUA Chair

Laderman
"Well, since we're all trying to get Hugh to pay us for plugs...

I'm a contract DBA for several different companies, one of which uses
the migration tool. They had asked me a question, and in trying to
answer it, found that the user's manuals for the Laderman tools are
online. Not finding what I was looking for, I posted an email asking a
question. I figured I'd get an email response in a day or two.

I got a phone call from Hugh within about 15 minutes. He guided me
right to the spot in the documentation I'd overlooked, and answered my
question.

I've never had support like that from any organization... ever!

Thanks, Hugh. Great job... Great product.

Re: Index key length
"I tried with a index key of 2 elements of 200bytes each and i get this error :
VALIDATE.
*+ E DC643106  RECORD RECORD-WB CONTROL FIELD(S) FOR SET SX-WB-1     WORD  2
*+ - DC643106  EXCEED 256 CHARACTERS

D MES DC643106
MESSAGE ID DC643106

LINE 1
SEVERITY 0
DESTINATION NULL
O.S. DEST CODE 0
O.S. ROUTE CODE 0
MESSAGE TEXT RECORD &P1 CONTROL FIELD(S) FOR SET &P2 EXCEED 256 CHARACTERS

DEFINITION DC643106 RECORD <record-name> CONTROL FIELD(S) FOR SET
<set-name> EXCEED 256 CHARACTERS
The combined length of the elements used either as a control
key for a sorted set or as a CALC key is greater than 256
bytes. The correction of this error is a question of
database design: either the control key must comprise fewer
elements, or one or more of the elements in the control key
must be shortened.
