IMS DB DC Developer
James has just written a new program following your advice to use checkpoints but now he is faced with another problem. After issuing a checkpoint, the program seems to "forget" its last position in the database as it restarts from the beginning of the database.
You need to help James understand why this happens. Which of the following does he need to know in order for him to fully understand what is happening in the program?
I. When a Checkpoint is issued, all database podition is lost
II. IMS set the position to the start of the database
III. After a Checkpoint Call, the program needs to reposition itself
IV. This repositioning can be done by issuing a GU Call to the last segment accessed before the Checkpoint
In response to a task you gave to James, he has written the following code to create a DBD using DBDGEN control statements. He was required to make LIBRARY the root segment while BOOKS and MAGAZINES were to be child segments to LIBRARY. But you have found out something wrong about the code.
Look again at it and answer the question that follows.
Line1: PRINT NOGEN
Line2: DBD NAME=LIBRARY,ACCESS=HIDAM
Line3: DATASET DD1=LIB,DEVICE=3380
Line4: SEGM NAME=LIBSEG,PARENT=0,BYTES=10
Line5: FIELD NAME=(BOOKS,SEQ,U),BYTES=10,START=1,TYPE=C
Line6: SEGM NAME=BOOKSEG,PARENT=LIBSEG,BYTES=5
Line7: FIELD NAME=(BOOKS,SEQ,U),BYTES=10,START=1,TYPE=C
Line8: SEGM NAME=MAGSEG,PARENT=LIBSEG,BYTES=9
Line9: FIELD NAME=(MAGZINES,SEQ),BYTES=8,START=1,TYPE=C
What is/are the corrections that James must make in order for the program to work as expected?
