Journal extracts to flat files

Discussion created by ca.portal.admin on Apr 5, 2007
Our satellite systems groups are interested in obtaining extracts from
the IDMS database of added/changed/deleted data to apply to their
relational databases. We have explored several commercial solutions
most of which rely on extracting the IDMS journals.

They now want to inquire whether it is possible to roll our own, and
extract the journals ourselves. I understand the complexity of this
operation. Has anybody already built such a beast, and if so, would you
be willing to share your solution? (No need for the commercial vendors
to reply - we have probably already talked to you.)

Thanks,

Obtain within area for records stored as direct
"How does the IDMS algorithm work when you want to do an area sweep on a
direct record. This is the only record in the area and is stored as direct.

The logic I am using is

obtain first
process
erase record
obtain first
process
erase record
....

Is there a better way to do this?

Thanks
Chander.

"Bob,
i cannot speak for anyone else, but when I sign in to IUASSN.ORG i do not

Re: Obtain within area for records stored as direct
"What your logic is doing is always start with the first page of the area and read every page until it finds a record. You're not taking advantage of Area Currency. Keep the first OBTAIN FIRST to establish currency in the area and then loop through doing OBTAIN NEXT IN AREA.

Re: Obtain within area for records stored as direct
"As far as I know an Area sweep is an Area sweep regardless of how the
records were stored. I believe IDMS maintains area currency after the
erase.

You should :
Obtain first
Process
Erase
Obtain next
Process
Erase

Obtaining first each time will cause you to do an exponential number of
reads since it will cause IDMS to read starting at the first page every
time. The Obtain first/obtain next will read each page only once.
