Database Functionality

Our ADABAS Conversion solution provides a complete replacement for all ADABAS file functionality, including:

  • ADABAS file layouts
  • Group-level elements
  • MU occurrences
  • PE occurrences
  • Super-Descriptors
  • Sub-Descriptors

Post ADABAS Conversion - Relational Results

When the ADABAS conversion is complete, the resulting relational database is fully relational. Primary keys, foreign keys and index definitions are automatically created. All constraints are generated into the resulting Data Definition Language. Table spaces, indexes, table names and column names are all generated according to your naming standards.

  • RI Check Syntax (optional) for use by relational database utility package
  • RUNSTATS Syntax (optional) for use by relational database utility package

  • ADABAS Data Extract JCL (optional; customized to your environment) to execute the extracts and other key-processing utilities
  • DCLGEN syntax (optional) to define COBOL layouts of the tables for replacement applications
