This IBM® Redbooks® publication provides students of information systems technology with the background knowledge and skills necessary to begin using the basic facilities of a mainframe computer. It is the first in a planned series of book designed to introduce students to mainframe concepts and help prepare them for a career in large systems computing. For optimal learning, students are assumed to have successfully completed an introductory course in computer system concepts, such as computer organization and architecture, operating systems, data management, or data communications. They should also have successfully completed courses in one or more programming languages, and be PC literate. This book can also be used as a prerequisite for courses in advanced topics or for internships and special studies. It is not intended to be a complete text covering all aspects of mainframe operation or a reference book that discusses every feature and option of the mainframe facilities. Others who will benefit from this book include experienced data processing professionals who have worked with non-mainframe platforms, or who are familiar with some aspects of the mainframe but want to become knowledgeable with other facilities and benefits of the mainframe environment.

If you are looking for a practical DB2 book that focuses on application programming, this is the book for you. Written from the programmer's point of view, it will quickly teach you what you need to know to access and process DB2 data in your COBOL programs using embedded SQL. This second edition has been thoroughly updated and expanded to make it even more valuable to the programmer who is slugging it out on the job. You will learn: the critical DB2 concepts that let you understand how DB2 works; the basic DB2 coding features you will use in every program you write; how to use version 4 enhancements like outer joins and explicit syntax for inner joins; how to work with column functions, scalar functions, and subqueries to manipulate data; how to use error handling techniques and ROLLBACK to protect DB2 data; why program efficiency is vital under DB2... and more.

Once you know how to use ISPF, you're ready to learn to use the underlying TSO commands directly, for more control. So MVS TSO, Part 2 starts by teaching you how to use TSO commands for everyday programming tasks. And once you're skilled at using TSO commands, you're going to want to combine those commands into time-saving procedures for the job you do most often. So this book then goes on to teach you how to create procedures using either TSO's procedure facilities -- CLIST or REXX.

All orders for the regular 11th Edition will be automatically upgraded to the Update Edition. Please note the following changes made to the 11e Update Edition. As the authors were researching material on the COBOL standard, they realized that the planned COBOL 2008 standard (discussed in the 11th edition) did not in fact occur. Some of the items marked as COBOL 2008 in the 11th edition had in fact changed in 2002, and some marked as COBOL 2008 will now finally be changed in the upcoming proposed COBOL 2013 standard. Therefore, in the Update Edition, we have changed the icons to indicate COBOL 2002 changes and the upcoming proposed COBOL 2013 changes. We removed all references to NetExpress, (which Wiley no longer distributes,) and added information on the new Micro Focus Academic Program. As of Summer 2013, members of this program are eligible to receive free licenses of Visual COBOL for teaching; free downloads of Visual COBOL Personal Edition for students; free online web support through community forums, blogs, and support network; and access to online software documentation and product manuals. Visit www.microfocus.com/bridgethegap for information on how to join. Some instructors reported that their students complained that the book felt dated, due to the older dates in code output. For a more contemporary feel, we changed these dates to the current year. We added program names to Practice Programs in the text for easier reference.
