Precompile: Draws all SQL Statements and put them into DBRM
Translate: Would Translate those SQL Statements into equivalent COBOL/Language Specific CALL Statements.
Compile and linkedit you know to check the syntax and genrate the load module(Executable).
I'd like to bring the following reply to the moderators point of view, since these sort of misleading answers may guide young professionals in a wrong way.
I want your honest reply for the same.
1)Precompile: removes the sql command blocks from the source code, compile them to form a object code as a DBRM, and the sql block will be replaced by a cobol call statement with the ncessary parameters.
2)Translation: this will remove the cics command blocks from block the modified source program and replace it with a call statement.
3)Compilation: our normal cobol compilation as you know to produce the object module..
4)Link-editing: Combining all the object moduled generated from the compilation to a single load module.
