Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section Introduction

This suite of programs is used to describe how to create a new VSAM, Key-Sequenced-Data-Set (KSDS with customer information) at the start of a regression test process and validate the changes made to the customer data set at the end of a regression test process. Also included are the jobs to make changes to the customer data set and then identify the changes by doing a file compare with a copy of the original customer data set.

The following is an overview of the steps involved in a regression test cycle.

1 Create a new customer master file
2 Make a copy of the customer master file
3 Make a change to the customer master file
4 Compare the Customer Master file with the copy of the Customer Master file
  Steps for doing the Regression Test to Create and change the Customer Master File

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.

This job will create a VSAM, KSDS data set. The key is twelve characters starting at the first position in the record. The record length is 512 characters.

Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section JCL, Populate the VSAM Keyed Sequence Data Set (KSDS)

The program that provides the capability of adding new records or replacing existing records is a COBOL program that may be compiled and executed on a mainframe system or a distributed system (Linux, UNIX or Windows) that is supported by Micro Focus. The program has the capability of adding one record to an empty VSAM Data Set or to add millions of records to an existing data set. A control file determines the number of records to add to a data set and the customer information is generated by input from various sequential files.

Note: Refer to the Downloads and Links to Similar Pages section of this document for additional information.

The following JCL Member (CUGNRUJ1.jcl) will populate (or load) a VSAM Data Set with customer information.

Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section Compare the Customer Master File with the Baseline Copy

This step will run a program that does a compare of the master data set with an original copy and will identify changes made to the master data set. Since the records in the data sets have date and time fields that may in a "not equal" condition the program is designed to do partial record compares that bypass the date and time fields.

Note: The compare program was generated by SimoTime Technologies. The generated program is COBOL source code that may be compiled on a mainframe system or a distributed system (Linux, UNIX or Windows) that is supported by Micro Focus. Refer to the Downloads and Links to Similar Pages section of this document for how the compare program is generated.

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 simply give us a call at 1 415 827-7045 or send an e-mail to: helpdesk@simotime.com
