IMS Version 10 adds many enhancements to this premier database and transaction manager. In this session you will learn:• How you can integrate FlashCopy into your image copy process• How your Fast Path systems can take advantage of larger processors• How you can use XQuery with IMS databases to find data within XML documents• How both your experienced and junior DBAs can benefit from DBRC enhancements• How security can authorize access to DBRC RECONs for readers versus updaters• How you can eliminate RECON access bottlenecks with Parallel RECON Access • And more!

EXP. LEVEL: Intermediate


Attendees will learn how IMS database processing capabilities have been enhanced in IMS V10 to provide improved performance and usability.

Attendees will learn how IMS V10 exploits data set FlashCopy to shorten and simplify the backup and recovery of all IMS database data sets.

Attendees will learn how Java programs may use XQuery to query IMS databases which are exposed to users as XML documents.

Attendees will learn how DBRC has been enhanced to provide improved security for the RECONs and update capabilities for the DBRC API.

Attendees will learn how Parallel RECON Access uses transactional VSAM to access the RECONs. They will learn how this radically reduces contention for the RECONs and increases IMS's capacity for many online, batch, and utility processes.
