CA IDMS Tuesday Tip by Ian Hill, Principal Support Engineer, for October 2, 2012

Application programs do not have to issue READY statements.

If a program has no READY statements, IDMS will itself perform an automatic READY, in which it READYs all areas in the subschema according to the specified default usage-modes.

Note also that in an ADS dialog, READY statements are not procedural - they act as "compiler directives" for the process involved. The actual READYing is performed when the first DML statement is issued.
