Mainframe Code DB2 on COBOL Programs for Absolute Beginners


You must have a Mainframe id to practice DB2 on Mainframe
You should know the basics of TSO/ISPf, JCL and COBOL. If not, I recommend you to enroll for “Mainframe: The Complete TSO/ISPF Course from Beginner to Expert”, “Mainframe: The Complete JCL Course from Beginner to Expert” and “Mainframe: The Complete COBOL Course from Beginner to Expert” first and then enroll for this course.


Note:——————————————————————————————————————————— This Course is NOT a DB2 DBA COURSE and is not related to Database Administration ——————————————————————————————————————————— Why should I Learn DB2  on Mainframe?Most of the projects on IBM Mainframe require DB2 Knowledge. Most of the Projects use COBOL DB2 Programs.If you know DB2, it adds value to your career and resume.Is this Course for DB2 DBA?No, this Course is for Developers who work on IBM Mainframe. This Course covers primary DDL operations from the developers’ point of view(not DBA’s), DML Operations, Keys, Index, and executing COBOL DB2 Programs.Does this course cover any CICS?Currently, this course does not cover any topic related to CICS. What makes this Course unique and a Best Seller?Well, the course has everything you need to get started with DB2 on COBOL. If you want to build a career in Mainframe, DB2 is a ‘MUST HAVE’ skill and this is the starting point of Mainframe.There’s no risk involved in taking this Course!This course comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee. I am sure that this is the best course on JCL and you can compare the content which is provided in this course against any DB2 Course I guarantee you that you will not get such good structured content anywhere. Still, if you are not completely satisfied with the course, please let us know and we will provide a refund without asking any questions.What if you are stuck?I personally answer all the questions which are asked here. If you are stuck anywhere, ask a question or you can message me directly and I will answer all your doubts.Are you getting updated content?Yes, I keep updating the content always to make sure, i provide all the information to my students.Which topics are covered in this Course? This Course Covers DB2 operations on COBOL programs for Mainframe Developers.Students will get trained on how to execute a COBOL DB2 Program.The concept of DB2 cursors is covered in detail.Major DDL and DML operations are illustrated with lots of examples.The concept of Keys and Indexes are covered with examples.Note:To understand the complete Mainframe, a professional must have DB2 skills on the Mainframe server. Most of the Mainframe projects will have DB2 in them.

Mainframe programmer who knows basics of TSO/ISPF, JCL and Cobol,Anyone who wants to learn DB2 on COBOL. This course is not for DB2 DBA but for Mainframe programmers.,The SQL commands learned using DB2 will work similarly on other tools like Oracle, MySql, Ms Sql server, postgresql, sqlite, etc. Of course, logic will be same but few exceptions can be there
