Any experiences with that? I saw the product in 2000 and this is the first time that I see again.
The shop has the latest version on MVS,TSO, ESY, Complete and Natural, therefore I imagine that we could do things that you nromally can not under other installations.
Unfortunetelly, nobody knows ANYTHING about the product (what it is and that even is installed), not even the DBAs…
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
Here is a link to the documentation
Basically it is “The Software AG product Entire System Server is a self-contained software package that provides operating system services in a Natural environment.”
It is merely the greatest idea since sliced bread.
As others have stated above, it allows you to do things like
FIND SPOOL-QUEUE WITH JOB-NAME = 'PAY*'
FIND SPOOL-FILES WITH JOB-NAME = SPOOL-QUEUE.JOB-NAME
AND JOB-NUMBER = SPOOL-QUEUE.JOB-NUMBER
processing on SPOOL-FILES.RECORD
It is also the non-NATURAL base of NATURAL ISPF.
I’ve always wondered why it never sold better than it has :o . In fact, I wish the concept was available outside the NATURAL world. (I have ideas :idea:, e-mail me off-line if interested.)
Disclaimer: I used to be one of the developers, so I do have a slight bias.
I did a presentation on it at a SAG conference in the mid 1990
Curtis, there are slide scanners you can hook into your computer.
