Just seen this article about IMS: -

begin_at_40_ibm_updates_venerable_database.html



Besides IDMS are there any other veteran DBMS's still going strong?



Thanks

"Is there no other geris left out there that ran Explosions on 407s
with attached 519s?
It only took 2 to 3 weeks.

I did a BOMP to ISAM conversion once. We used Total-like interface to
provide the same functionality for both file organisation types (keyed
access, sequential access, etc) - requests were ""data independent"" from
the application point of view because the developer nominated which
elements to return for each record type - we could switch from one
access method to another by re-linking the application with either the
BOMP or ISAM access module. This was 1972-73 - IT was still fun in those
days ;-)

Re: Fwd: IMS Approaching 40 years availability
"You are probably thinking of the IRLM; not really considered 'part' of
IMS any longer. Also, IBM has shoved IMS under the DB2 umbrella, which
is really weird.
