Topic: DB2 for z/OS
DATE: 2010-11-10 (13:00 - 14:00)
SPEAKERS: Troy Coleman (CA)
If you are a long time mainframe COBOL developer the odds are you have heard of XML but you may not realize that a very powerful XML parser is available with z/OS called z/OS XML System Services. Another leap in XML support on z/OS is the new native XML data type found in DB2 9 for z/OS. This presentation will help bring you up to speed with the basics of XML and the two leading methods for parsing and processing XML (Document Object Model : DOM, and Simple API for XML: SAX). Iâ€™ll then describe and provide sample code using XML System Services with COBOL to parse or build XML documents from files. Iâ€™ll go on to describe and provide sample code written in COBOL using DB2 9 for z/OS to publish XML documents from relational columns along with samples for managing XML stored in the new native XML data type.
