Our company will shortly begin the conversion of our ADABAS/NATURAL Applications from the Mainframe to the LUW World. Our servers are currently being installed and tested and some of the products that were purchased have been delegated to a select few. I am one of those few.
I’ve been tasked with learning the ins and outs of Natural Engineer. I believe we have the latest version (8.3) ? I have access to the following documents:
Natural Engineer 833 Release Notes
Natural Engineer Concepts and Facilities
Natural Engineer Messages and Codes
Natural Engineer Reporting
Natural Engineer 8331 readmefix
My background has strictly been in Application Development for the last 20+ years, not installation or configuation of software or packages. I’m looking for some type of user guide or recommendation on how to get started in this new environment with this software. Each of the documents appear to have been written to work for any platform. I’m looking for examples of how to get started ( Go here, click here, do this, etc…) for the LUW world if it exists.
This GUI environment is completely new to me and my team. We’re strictly Mainframe ADABAS/NATURAL. Links or suggestions for Rookies like myself on how to get started using this software will be greatly appreciated. I’ve even consulted YouTube for help and actually found a 1 hr demo on some of the basics but even that has left me somewhat puzzled.
Would appreciate any help, links, or documentation that anybody has used in the past that is still relevant for me to use as a starting point in this journey.
