Hi there !

Just a quick overfew:

Business Intelligence Software for Enterprise Reporting and Rapid Application Development

NOMAD is the most functionally rich business intelligence reporting tool available today for delivering a full range of applications with easy access to a variety of data sources for reporting and analysis. NOMAD is a fully relational product, which provides the basis for its tight integration with and highly efficient use of other relational database engines such as DB2 for z/OS and DB2 for z/VM.

A variety of application generators and user interface options, including a reporting front end and a graphical user interface design tool, speed both the development and use of NOMAD applications.

NOMAD is available for z/OS, OS/390, and z/VM on mainframe machines. When used with Front & Center as a reporting front end with RP/Server, NOMAD is a powerful mainframe server. NOMAD can also participate in IBM's Distributed Relational Database Architecture (DRDA) through DB2 interfaces on the mainframe and Unix platforms.

In addition to data stored in NOMAD databases, you can easily access and combine data from a variety of sources, including leading relational systems such as DB2, as well as IDMS, IDMS/R, VSAM and QSAM files. With its special shared database facility, NOMAD users also have the ability to report from local or remote NOMAD databases on either z/VM or z/OS machines.

NOMAD is designed for maximized efficiency when accessing data in relational engines, including support for static SQL. NOMAD translates its commands into SQL statements and offloads as much work as possible, such as sorting and aggregation, to the SQL engine. Additionally, selective data listing can be performed efficiently through SELECT and LIST WHERE commands, and global data maintenance is handled by passing set calls for CHANGE and DELETE as a single transaction

NOMAD Schema

All the information about your data and much of the application logic are specified once in a NOMAD Schema. This provides a high degree of control and saves time and programming effort throughout the application life cycle. Field-, record- and database-level integrity checks and security constraints are defined in the Schema and applied automatically whenever data is accessed. NOMAD also provides complete support for RULE-based referential integrity, as well as full support for outer joins and null values.

Programmable Windows

NOMAD Windows provides developers with a programmable windowed environment in which to work and create CUA-style windowed applications. The facility automatically manages multiple screen display areas and can be used to interactively pan through output produced by reports or commands, as well as recall prior commands. Developers have complete flexibility in application interface design. Windows can incorporate structured and/or free-form textual fields without restriction. Any number of windows can be simultaneously active, so users can browse or update data from multiple sources without losing either data or context in other windows. Additionally, windows can pop up, cascade, overlap and change in size or screen location as needed in an application.

Application Generation Tools

An extensive collection of facilities are available to speed application development, including templates for creating menus and forms, tools for generating maintenance procedures without coding program statements, and a CUA-style tool for quickly building and revising report requests.

Inquiry and Reporting

NOMAD enables users to build sophisticated production-level reporting applications for interactive or batch execution. The highly versatile LIST command provides full flexibility for row/column and free-format reporting, and is a powerful tool for financial reporting. An optional facility is available to reduce resource usage for production reporting by producing multiple reports with a single pass through the database.

Thanks for listening, Regards, UmeySan

Dear b4uthamni,

I will have to work upon a project. In which, I will have to change the NOMAD into the cobol programs.

I have never worked upon NOMAD. I am not able to find any relevent doument on internet.

Kindly send if you have any tutorial documents(for NOMAD) or relevent information to accomplish this task.

Any help in this, would be a great help.


Kind Regards

Hello,

NOMAD material is covered by copyright and may neither be posted nor linked via our forum.

Any such material will be deleted. . .

Suggest you contact the current vendor of NOMAD:
http://www.selectbs.com/mainframe/

Be prepared to write considerably more cobol code than the existing nomad 4gl code. . .

Reply with quote

Hello All,

I was not able to get any help from www.selectbs.com. I wrote a mail to them, but they said they dont have any material for this.

if anybody tell me any other way to get the NOMAD documents, would be a great help.

Could anybody please let me know how to run(compile and execute) the nomad reporting program on IBM Mainframe??

is the compilation process similar to SAS code compilation process.

SAS code run through the JCL in MAINFRAME.


Regards

Yes...You are absolutely correct...
May ratio will be 1(line in nomad):20(lines on cobol) or may be more than that... icon_lol.gif icon_lol.gif

I doubt writing mail to them will help. You can BUY it using link given by Dick.
But I suggest check with your clients when they purchased NOMAD, if they have got documentation too. Because generaly they do give some basic documentation (both about installationa of NOMAD and about language)

NO complilation needed.
You can run it in batch mode or in online mode using NSM(Nomad Session Manager)
