Understand how the initial IMS configuration impacts planning for the implementation of Shared Queues
Identify the key migration and operational considerations of IMS Shared Queues implementation
Implement, initialize, and access IMS Shared Message Queues (MSGQ) and Shared EMH Queues (EMHQ)
Describe how IMS queues, schedules and process transactions in a Shared Queues environment
Identify MSC and conversational processing considerations as well as log records associated with an IMS Shared Queues environment
Use IMS exits and XCF commands related to IMS Shared Queues
Tailor IMS system definitions and execution time parameters associated with IMS Shared Queues
This is an advanced course for experienced IMS programmers, IMS Database (DB) and Transaction Manager (TM) system administrators, IMS application designers, and IMS operations individuals who plan, implement, and support IMS Shared Queues.
