How to store PDF files in IMS Database

Postby Brenda B » Wed Apr 06, 2011 2:50 pm

We are looking to store PDF documents in an IMS database. Can anyone point us in the right direction to get started on this? Assuming, of course, that's it's possible/practical............
Thank u

I would have thought that it was impossible unless there have been changes to IMS to allow BLOB type data. DB2 could handle it.
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.

Depends ... If you have something to de-construct/re-construct
Suppose the 1st question is how do you want to retrieve/look at it
If the code hasn't been changed, why is the LKED date today?
