Migrate PDS member to DB2 structure

Post by amolpawar » Wed Jun 29, 2016 4:30 pm


I want to migrate mainframe Assembler program from ZOS to Zlinux as Zos does not support Assembler.

The Assembler modules call PDS member structure as Db2 tables( Used as Db2 tables before Db2 invention).

My question : Is there any way to Run Assembler on Zlinux ? as the number of PDS members used as Db2 are huge in numbers and to handle it by Cobol code is not a small task.

Could you please suggest me if there is any another approach to be follow.
right now I am creating DB2 tables for PDS member treated as Db2, and doing coding for Cobol to replace Assembler.

Please suggest.
