Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section Introduction

The suite of programs provides the capability of creating and managing a repository of information or "Repository for Application Properties" for the source code used by a mainframe application or group of applications. This information can be quite useful when supporting applications or migrating applications and data between a Mainframe System and a Linux, UNIX or Windows (LUW) System using Micro Focus technologies. This suite of programs (referred to as APMAST01) runs on a personal computer with Microsoft Windows (Windows/XP or later) and Micro Focus (Net Express 5.1 or later).

The information obtained from the source code scanning functionality provided by the SimoLYZE Utility Program (a separate package) will be used to initially create and/or update a repository (a Micro Focus Key-Sequenced-Data-Set or Indexed File) that contains application properties and management information. This data base will be referred to as the "Application Properties Repository" (or APMASTER) . This suite of programs is provided as an add-on or plug-in for the SimoLYZE Utility Program. The suite includes programs that will read the APMASTER and create various reports, listings, scripts and other information as described in the following sections of this document.

The source code, data sets and documentation are provided in a single zipped file called APMAST01.ZIP. This zipped file may be downloaded from the SimoTime Web site. This example illustrates the following functions.

Item Description
1 Download the source code from the Mainframe to a directory on a Windows System.
2 Scan the Source Members (using the SimoLYZE utility program) and create or update the Application Properties Repository (APMASTER.DAT).
3 Read the APMASTER and create a listing (an ASCII/Text File) of detailed information for each source member. Include a summary page by source member type.
4 Read the APMASTER and create an HTML document of detailed information by source member. Include a summary page by source member type. As an option provide hyperlinks from the HTML document to the source members.
  Functionality Provided by the Application Repository Management Programs

We have made a significant effort to ensure the documents and software technologies are correct and accurate. We reserve the right to make changes without notice at any time. The function delivered in this version is based upon the enhancement requests from a specific group of users. The intent is to provide changes as the need arises and in a timeframe that is dependent upon the availability of resources.

Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section Objectives and Prerequisites

The purpose of this suite of programs is to assist in the defining of the scope of effort for migrating and/or maintaining a business application by providing information about the size and properties of the source members that are used in the building of a production application. When performing a task that requires an application change and/or redeployment a certain minimum level of information is required to determine the size and effort required. The following table list some of the items that provide this information.

Item Objective
1 Provide sizing information in the form of the number of programs, the type of programs and the line of code counts with a breakdown by code, comments and blank lines.
2 Provide sample scripts and source member lists by category for doing an automated application build (i.e. BMS Generations and COBOL Compilations).
3 Provide application documentation in various formats (ASCII/Text, HTML, Excel, etc.).
  Objectives for the Application Repository Management Programs

The suite of utility programs uses Micro Focus COBOL and Windows Command files. The programs are unit tested with Micro Focus Net Express, version 5.1. The full program or system testing is done on a Windows/7 system using Micro Focus Studio, Enterprise Edition. The programs are deployed on various versions of Windows (Window/XP and Windows Server 2008) using Micro Focus Server, Enterprise Edition.

Item Requirement
1 Hardware, a personal computer with a minimum of 2 gigabyte of memory and 30 gigabytes of disk
2 Operating System, Windows/7, Windows/XP or Windows Server 2008.
3 Net Express 5.1 or later, this is required to compile and execute the COBOL programs and is available from Micro Focus
4 SimoLYZE, this is the minimum required to do the source member scanning and member typing and is available from SimoTime Enterprises. For large applications and Mainframe Migrations the Enterprise License for Application and Data Migration Technologies is recommended.
  Hardware and Software Prerequisites for the Application Repository Management Programs

Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section Application Properties Repository

The Repository of Application Properties contains information about the application assets (or source members) used by an application designed to run in a mainframe-oriented environment. The repository and utility programs provide support for Mainframe Assembler Source Members, BMS Source Members, COBOL Source Members, IMS Source Members and JCL Source Members (including PROC's and INCLUDES). The utility programs will produce detailed documentation (HTML or TEXT Format) about each source member and a summary of source members by member type.

Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section Prepare the Repository

To create a new Repository of Application Properties execute the (APLOADW1.CMD) that will call other command files to build and populate the repository and then produce an HTML document. This link provides additional detail about  How to Create and Populate a Repository  of Application Properties.

C:\SIMOSAM1\ADM1> APLOADW1 

An alternate is to simply click on the command member name from a Windows Explorer display. The following shows the content of the APLOADW1.cmd Windows Command file.

The Repository of Application Properties includes the following detail for each source member.

1 Member Type (i.e. Assembler Program/Copy file/Macro, COBOL Program/Copy file, JCL JOB/PROC/INCLUDE and more)
2 Programming Language (i.e. Assembler, COBOL or JCL)
3 Total Record Count
4 Lines of Code
5 Comment Lines
6 Blank Lines
7 Member contains EXEC CICS statements
8 Member contains EXEC SQL statements
  Detailed Information for Each Source Member

The following is a list of reports or HTML documents that may be created after the repository has been created and populated.

1 Produce an HTML Document with Summary Totals for Source Member Counts by Category and Lines of Code
2 Provide for optional Detail for sub-Totals of Lines-of-Code, Blank-Lines and Comment-Lines by Individual Source Members
3 Provide for optional Hyperlinks to Individual Source Members
4 Provide for optional Cross Referencing of Program Members and Copy Files
5 Provide for optional WIP
  Summary Reports produced from the Information in the Application Repository

The following sections will provide examples of the summary information available from the Repository of Application Properties.

Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section Use the Repository

The information stored in the repository may be used when performing various tasks associated with the maintenance and support of business applications. For example, the repository knows which source members contain EXEC CICS and/or EXEC SQL statements and this information can be used to determine which compiler directives and preprocessors or required when compiling the individual programs.

The following sections describe some of the commands and programs that are included in the suite of programs used to create and manage the Repository of Application Properties.

Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section Source Member Inventory with LOC Counts

One of the items produced while scanning a source code member is the number of records within the member (or file). By itself this number could be misleading. Since the scanning process determines the language and member type it has the ability to determine what is a Line-of-Code (LOC), a comment and a blank line. These numbers as a group can be quite useful.

Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section Prepare and Execute a BMS Generation

The scripted BMS Generation for multiple BMS Members uses a "List of Member Names" stored in an ASCII/Text file. Once the list is created a Windows Command File with a "FOR" loop will access the List of Member Names and execute the BMS Generation process for each BMS member.

Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section Create a List of BMS Members

Creating an ASCII/Text file with a list of BMS Member names can be done manually using a file editor such as Microsoft NotePad. The BMS Member name is the 8-byte (or less) member name without a file extension. Doing this manually may be a good choice for a small number of BMS Members.

However, when there is a large number of BMS Members an automated process may be a better alternative. If the SimoLYZE function was used to do member typing and create an Application Properties Repository a command script and a program are provided to create a BMS Member list. This sample script (BMLISTE3.cmd) will access the Application Properties Repository (APMASTER.DAT) and create a list of BMS member names. The following shows the Windows command script.

This section will focus on creating an automated and unattended batch process to build the load members from the COBOL source code.

Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section Create Four Lists of COBOL Members

This process will read the Application Properties Repository and create four list files.

The following table describes the four (4) list files and the corresponding categories of COBOL Programs.

CBLBATL1 A list of COBOL batch programs without SQL.
CBLBSQL1 A list of COBOL batch programs with SQL.
CBLONLL1 A list of COBOL online programs without SQL and with CICS.
CBLOSQL1 A list of COBOL batch programs with SQL and with CICS.
 The Categories of COBOL Programs for Scripted Compile

The list files are in ASCII/Text Format. The following (CBLISTE4.cmd) shows the content of a sample command file.

Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section Company Overview

SimoTime Technologies was founded in 1987 and is a privately owned company. We specialize in the creation and deployment of business applications using new or existing technologies and services. We have a team of individuals that understand the broad range of technologies being used in today's environments. Our customers include small businesses using Internet technologies to corporations using very large mainframe systems.

Quite often, to reach larger markets or provide a higher level of service to existing customers it requires the newer Internet technologies to work in a complementary manner with existing corporate mainframe systems. We specialize in preparing applications and the associated data that are currently residing on a single platform to be distributed across a variety of platforms.

Preparing the application programs will require the transfer of source members that will be compiled and deployed on the target platform. The data will need to be transferred between the systems and may need to be converted and validated at various stages within the process. SimoTime has the technology, services and experience to assist in the application and data management tasks involved with doing business in a multi-system environment.

Whether you want to use the Internet to expand into new market segments or as a delivery vehicle for existing business functions or need assistance with converting non-relational data structures simply give us a call at 415 883-6565 or check the web site at http://www.simotime.com
