Journaling and Commitment Control

Journaling and commitment control is used to keep the database in the consistence state. You can also specify the commitment control (COMMIT) parameter on the Open Database File (OPNDBF) and Open Query File (OPNQRYF) commands. Commit - which causes the current set of changes becomes the permanet in the database file. Commitment control is a function that allows you to define and process a number of changes to database files as a single unit (transaction) Journalling - Every changes in the database file will be recorded in the Journal file. Journalling - Every changes in the database file will be recorded in the Journal file.

Commitment Control

Commitment control is a function that ensures data integrity. It allows you to define and process a group of changes to resources, such as database files or tables, as a transaction. Commitment control ensures that either the entire group of individual changes occur on all systems that participate or that none of the changes occur. DB2 Universal Database(TM) for iSeriesTM uses the commitment control function to commit and rollback database transactions that are running with an isolation level other than *NONE (No Commit). You can use commitment control to design an application so the system can restart the application if a job, an activation group within a job, or the system ends abnormally. With commitment control, you can have assurance that when the application starts again, no partial updates are in the database due to incomplete transactions from a prior failure.


You must journal (log) a database file (resource type FILE or DDM) before it can be opened for output under commitment control or referenced by an SQL application that uses an isolation level other than No Commit. Afile does not need to be journaled in order to open it for input only under commitment control. An error occurs if: An attempt is made to open a database file for output under commitment control, but the file is not currently journaled.

Journaled files and commitment control

No commitment definition is started that can be used by the file being opened under commitment control. If only the after images are being journaled for a database file when that file is opened under commitment control, the system automatically starts journaling both the before and after images. The before images are written only for changes to the file that occur under commitment control. If other changes that are not under commitment control occur to the file at the same time, only after-images are written for those changes.

although other object of the same file exist in the current library list. is also possible: opnqryf creates the open data path and to share the same data path in a program we use ovrdbf share(*yes). Above answer is correct but there is one step missing 1. if necessary. OPNQRYF without ovrdbf. if we do not use ovrdbf. the system then uses the journal entries. the system does not automatically write journal entries for API commitment resources. suppose u want to use a work file in QTEMP . Example. CRTJRNRCV 2. **Note: Same can be achieved in RPG using EXTFILE and EXTMBR. ENDCMTCTL One more thing you if you guys using COBOL then u have to define Commitment Control for the file in the environment division in File Control. then program will have its own ODP. STRCMTCTL (in CL program) 5. CRTJRN 3. Now. STRJRN 4. OVRDBF can be used separately without opnqryf to override the attributes of file. Declare file with keyword COMMIT and in program use Commit and Rollback based on processing logic (i.The system automatically writes record-level committable changes and object-level committable changes to a journal. for recovery purposes. For record-level changes. The content of these entries is controlled by the user exit program. CLLE/CLP ========== Can we use OVRDBF command without using of OPNQRYF? Or can we use OPNQRYF command without using of OVRDBF command? 1. the exit program for the API resource can use the Send Journal Entry (QJOSJRNE) API to writejournal entries to provide an audit trail or to assist with recovery. so it will read the file from beginning on which query has been .e. Furthermore. the system does not use entries from object-level committable changes for recovery purposes. ENDJRN 7. after successful execution use Commit and when invoked exception handling then use rollback). 6. However.

Also.g. then it is converted into a CPF9999 and that exception is raised . What are the differences between CPF0000 and CPF9999? How these can be used effectively? The CPF0000 and CPF9999 are used as an global MONMSGs.: MONMSG MSGID(CPF9801 CPF9802 CPF9810) Next. you can monitor for a specific message. e. in other words. there are error messages other than CPFxxxx . The process of Error handling using MONMSGs is as below. OPNQRYF selected records will have no importance. Finally. CPF9999. it is my understanding that.. if a CPF message occurs and is not "handled" in the CL program. First. which is very useful information to have when diagnosing a problem. you can monitor for a truly generic message. You can also specify the commitment control (COMMIT) parameter on the Open Database File (OPNDBF) and Open Query File (OPNQRYF) commands.. CPF9999 there are advantages to using CPF9999: If an unmonitored exception message arrives on the program message queue. So. you can monitor for a whole group of related messages.this will trap any message that begins with CPFxxxx. there was no active MONMSG that matched the message ID either exactly or as a generic pattern. Next. is sent. The message contains the statement number of the failing statment. you may get additional messages.: MONMSG MSGID(CPF0000 MCH0000) EXEC(GOTO ERROR) For these message IDs to be considered a "generic pattern" it must end in "00" or "0000".g. such as: MONMSG MSGID(CPF0000) -. due to this extra processing that occurs before it is converted to So. we need to use CPYFRMQRYF command and put the selected records in to runtime file and use that file to read in program. But. e.: MONMSG MSGID(CPF9801) Or you can monitor for a list of specific messages.typically this is used in a "global message monitor" statement at the start of the program. used for all errors and exceptions. e.g.this will trap any message that begins with CPF98xx. the function check message. so you can also monitor for CPF9999. using a "generic" designation such as: MONMSG MSGID(CPF9800) -. -. such as the one that tells you there was an unhandled exception and asks if you want a "dump" etc.

the problematic code is easier to locate. and you never have to worry about additional error message groups. On Page up load it again .In such case how I can handle it in in single page we have to handle it in pgm. Until user does not press Enter key ReadC won't detect any change record.. etc. We can handle this using physical file RRN value. First build the file according to the Size/Page. Declare RRN field in F spec. Then move valid RRN into this field and apply Chain on SFL record format having RRN field specified in factor1 of chain. u do not need to worry about the option u have entered on first page.if I select the mutiple page and without pressing enter. You do not need to specify anything for that.. Specified RRN record from subfile will be read by system.I press rollup (pagedown)..messages that can cause a CL program to terminate (MCHxxxx. It helpful if any one answer with coding ? options in 1 key rpg becasue would be System will take care of it .) By allowing the function check to occur. Display File/Subfile Can we perform CHAIN operation on Subfile record format.When user . Which keyword is used both in subfile and subfile control record format of a DSPF? XXXCTL Ex: Keyword Indicators/+ Resp Text CA03 03 Exit CA12 12 Cancel XXXSFL Ex: Keyword Indicator CA03 03 CA12 12 Text 'Exit' 'Cancel' What is the use of SFLMSG file and keyword SFLPGMQ ? Describe the KEEP and OVERLAY Keywords? In single page subfile.? WE can chain subfile by Relative record number RRN.

Whenever user press enter (suppose user choose one option in page one and another option on page 3) then process option through this the correct method because we have to find number of records present using file .E-externally described. then first check if subfile record is in array (with lookup). We can handle this using arrays. else display blank option.Chain the temporary file with RRN value and if the RRn is present in the temporary file move the corresponding option to the Subfile options. Whenever load the sub-file. RPG/400 number of Records present in a physical file using file information data structure FPF001 F IINFDS1 I DS *RECORD RECORD IP E DISK KINFDS INFDS1 Is this coding correct sir.P-primary file. if entered options are valid then in first array store the fields value (through which we can identify record as unique in sub-file) and in second array store the option.enters some options in the first page and takes a pagedown Read the changes on the subfile using ReadC ie. Clear the temporary file when the user confirms delete or when user doesnt want to delete. Check this temporary file evrytime you load the records on subfile and update this temporary file evry time there is a chnage on the subfile options.i have given I P E that is Iinput. When user enters some options in the first page and takes a pagedown then read the changes on the sub-file using READC. Primary to use RPG logic cycle. first validate the option. read the option entered for that record and save the physical file RRN value for that record in a temporary file along with option (You can get RRN value by declaring File information data structure for that physical file) When you load the records in the subroutine bfore writing the values to subfile . then write option equal to second array value and clear the array element.

Like below… . indentation. So a panel group is a lot like a display file . And most people see PNLGRP's as help windows. How can we read a PF in reverse order in CL ? you can read a physical file in DESENDING ORDER. What is the use of Panel Group? It is used to create a Help Panel for the application.a collection of 'windows' or screens to display and interact with data.information data structure in RPG/400 without doing any input/output operations on the file and also without using DSPFD. But for this you first need to do OVRDBF on the file.You can get explicit. But you can use them to create subfiles and other display items as well. yes.SQL. The idea is to create a common user interface without all the manual work involved in ensuring the same 'look and feel'. print formats. etc . Panel groups are a part of IBM's UIM facility . yes. FAAPPOLM (FILE) DFILE DS DREC 0 C REC C IP E K DISK INFDS 156 DSPLY EVAL 159I *INLR = *ON I have declared file information data structure in position 156 to 159 it will hold the number of records in the file. or help information. A panel group is an object that contains a collection of display formats. colorization. You can first sort the physical file in decending order through OPNQRYF using KEYFLD. This will sort your PF in decending order based on your key field and then do the RCVF on this file. The difference is that instead of explicitly specifying locations.User Interface Manager. Panel Groups is an Object on AS/400 (*PNLGRP) CRTPNLGRP = to create a panel group program For Help screen using Panel Group On AS/400 all help screens used Panel Group objects A panel is a visual presentation of data on the screen.IBM's UIM handles the majority of that.

. . . . . . . . Key field order . . now read file using RCVF command. . . *NONE *DESCEND . .Use OVRDBF Share(*yes) Use the Openqry file by specified the values on opnqry file Key field . . . .
