Once you know the basics of writing DB2 programs, there's still plenty to learn. So Part 2 of DB2 for the COBOL Programmer takes up where Part 1 leaves off, teaching you the advanced features you're going to want to know about as you continue working in DB2. Section 1 covers advanced DB2 features that you'll use from time to time in one program or another: -- how to handle data manipulation applications, especially those that involve time and date data -- how to use advanced error handling techniques -- how to handle dynamic SQL statements -- how to use the distributed data management capabilities of DB2 -- what you should know about concurrency and locking considerations to maintain the integrity of the data your programs are operating on (although DBAs control this, some of the options you specify in your programs can affect concurrency and locking efficiency) Section 2 shows you how to process DB2 tables in CICS programs. This section does not teach CICS itself (if you need CICS training, see our CICS books on pages 10 and 11). If you already know CICS, however, this section will teach you all you need to know to handle DB2 data in your CICS programs. Section 3 introduces you to the concepts and practices of DB2 data base administration, to enable you to define and create your own test tables. That's a skill that comes in handy both when you're testing programs and when you want to experiment interactively with SQL statements before you code the statements in a program. In short, knowing about these features will make you a more productive and professional programmer...even if you're not aspiring to be a DBA. Section 4 covers IBM's Query Management Facility(QMF), an interactive software product that lets users access data stored in DB2 tables. QMF is targeted to a wide range of users, from those with no data processing experience to experts. This section focuses on the basic QMF concepts and skills you can use as you develop your application programs. So don't wait to expand your DB2 skills. Get a copy of this book Today. I think you'll be delighted at how quickly you'll master the advanced features of DB2.

This book takes up where Part 1 leaves off. Part 1 covers the basics of CICS...the elements you'll use in just about every CICS program you write. Part 2 covers the advanced features you'll use regularly, though you won't need all of them for every program.To be specific, this book teaches you: -- how to use browse commands to process a file sequentially-- how to use the browse commands to process VSAM alternate index files-- how DB2 database processing affects CICS programming (if you don't have any DB2 experience, this is just an introduction; you can get the additional DB2 training you'll need from our DB2 books, described on pages 3 and 4)-- how DL/I database processing affects CICS programming (again, this is an introduction; you can get the additional DL/I training you'll need from our IMS books, described on page 9)-- how to produce multi-page output using BMS page building-- how to use the ROUTE command to direct output to one or more terminals-- how to use terminal control commands that let you communicate directly with a terminal, bypassing BMS-- how to use temporary storage queues to store and retrieve small amounts of temporary data-- how to use transient data queues (transient data exists only from the time it's written to the time it's read)-- how to use interval control commands to start a task-- how to create an abend exit to keep your task from abending when an error occurs-- how to use the distributed processing features of CICS, including Distributed Program Link and APPCAfter finishing this book, then, you'll know a wide variety of advanced CICS features. Just as important, though, you'll know what features dosimilar things and when to use each one. And it's that knowledge that will save you time and work every day.
