IBM Migration Utility for z/OS and OS/390 Generate and Maintain Standard IBM COBOL Reports Using Easytrieve Plus Language Statements from Computer Associates
At a Glance
The IBM Migration Utility for z/OS and OS/390 allows customers to create standard COBOL reports using Computer Associates' Easytrieve Plus language without Easytrieve Plus installed. The Migration Utility can be used in several ways:
For ordering, contact:
Your IBM representative, an IBM Business Partner, or IBM Americas Call Centers at 800-IBM-CALL (Reference: LE001).
The IBM Migration Utility for z/OS and OS/390® creates standard COBOL reports from Easytrieve Plus language statements, without Easytrieve Plus installed, and which run in place of the Easytrieve run-time interpreter. These applications can then be modified, maintained, and enhanced via standard COBOL programming.
The Migration Utility can be used to replace Easytrieve Plus for existing reports, to modify or enhance converted reports using Easytrieve language, or to create new reports using the Easytrieve Plus language.
In addition to cost savings, the use of the Migration Utility provides:
Supported file types include:
One of these operating systems:
The Migration Utility reads Easytrieve language statements, converts them to a neutral meta-format, generates standard COBOL statements, compiles (and optionally saves), and executes the compiled COBOL code. The generated COBOL source can be edited to include additional logic not supported by Easytrieve, or to make modifications to report content as required by changing business conditions.
These uses of the Migration Utility for z/OS and OS/390 not only saves on Easytrieve Plus license costs, but delivers several additional benefits, including superior efficiency in I/O handling and memory management, improved performance in sorting and searching, coexistence with other language environments and platforms, accessibility to all COBOL debugging tools, and the ability to augment Easytrieve logic with embedded COBOL subroutines. Additionally, the Migration Utility will:
The Migration Utility for z/OS and OS/390 supports the following file types:
Use of the Migration Utility for z/OS and OS/390 not only eliminates the Easytrieve Plus license costs, it delivers several additional benefits:
Sample JCL is provided for each job step in the translation process, which can be adapted to the user's operating standards. The Migration Utility ships as a set of macros which interprets the Easytrieve syntax and generates the meta-format, and load modules which perform the rest of the conversion to COBOL. The sample JCL then invokes the COBOL compile, link, and go steps.

Direct Customer Support: For customers requiring additional assistance, we can offer custom services to meet the customers' needs. These services might include but are no limited to additional education, project planning assistance, periodic project reviews, or a turn key approach where IBM outsources the migration project itself. For support, contact your area representative.
The programs in this announcement have a one-time charge (OTC) unit Value Units.
Value Value Units/ Units/ Usage Level Minimum Maximum MSU HW Machine Base 1 3 1 MP3000 H30 6 PSLC(1)/ Level A 4 45 0.45 MP3000 H50 8 PSLC / Level B 46 175 0.36 MP3000 H70 12 PSLC / Level C 176 315 0.27 ESL(2) Models 2 PSLC / Level D 316 + 0.2
The programs in this announcement have one charge unit Value Units.
Value Units for IBM 9672 processors will be based upon the full capacity of these systems. This is applicable to all S/390®-based systems that are measured on MSU capacity. Information on MSU capacities can be found in the IBM System/370, System/390® and zSeries Machine Exhibit Z125-3901.
Value Units for zSeries will be based upon full MSU capacity as defined in the Machine Exhibits .
There will be a tool available that provides support for transforming the MSU-based capacities of S/390 systems to new Value Units by calculating the applicable number of Value Units for a given number of MSUs.
When calculating the total number of Value Units, the sum is to be rounded up to the next integer.
Feature Number 1 Value Unit 0001 250 Value Units 0002
Example: For a program running on machines with 1,000 MSUs requiring 270 Value Units, would order feature number 0001, quantity 20 and feature number 0002, quantity 1.
Note: For actual feature codes, see below.
Value Units for non MSU-based S/390 processors:
MP3000 Models H30 = 6.00 Value Units H50 = 8.00 Value Units H70 = 12.00 Value Units P/390, R/390, IBM 3006 = 2.00 Value Units
