MOCK UP examples PLEASE :(

Postby tlsmd » Tue Nov 09, 2010 9:02 pm

Hello, I am new to the world of cobol and just got out of all the classes and got a certificate at work..
During class we never once went over mock ups and how to do them properly...
I have a assignment and need to draw a mock up before I start coding for the analysts to review to make sure im on the right path as to how the record will look like..
I was wondering if someone can please help me..

Hello and welcome to the forum,

What is a mock up in your organization? Are you supposed to show some process or some record layout/content?

If "they" want one, they can/should provide direction as to what yours should contain.
Hope this helps,

AFAIK : mock up ~= empty prototype, not reading any input, just outputting some hardcoded data.
This usually shows your record layouts/screens/commarea definitions are correct.
Procedure division = just move hardcoded values to your output and send/write/display/return

It could even be that the analist wants you to just
- allocate a file
- edit it in editor to look like (what you think is) your output
without any programming.
I can explain it to you, but i can not understand it for you.

Yup, lots of different places have different understandings of what is a "mock up".

Maybe tlsmd will clarify so someone might be able to help.
Hope this helps,
