The GENESIS RMS driver for OpenVMS uses direct RMS calls to provide very high
performance with SQL access. The RMS driver supports structure tagging
within RMS files to maintain legacy RMS file structures and applications.
Included with the driver is a GENESIS dictionary
maintenance utility. GENESIS relies upon four dictionary tables to keep track
of the RMS ISAM file layouts, including keys. The utility initializes
the GENESIS dictionary. Existing RMS files are defined using an ASCII
To run the utility:
1. Create a GENESIS data source file.
In $GENESIS_HOME, create a file with
where <dictsource> is a directory in which the GENESIS dictionary
will be created and <datasource> is a list of directories to
search for RMS files.
2. Create and load the GENESIS dictionary fr.
Assuming that the file in step 1 is called myrms,
gds8init myrms -i
gds8init myrms -alegacydef.rdf
This creates the GENESIS dictionary and also inserts the RMS structure
definition contained in the legacydef.rdf file.
You are now ready to run SQL queries and updates against your existing RMS
files and create new ones! You need only decide which Trifox client
product to use.
