Abstract

This article describes a method for converting the IMS Application Development Facility II (IMSADF II) rule generator source to the Interactive System Productivity Facility (ISPF) table format so that the user can maintain the IMSADF II rule definitions using the Interactive Application Development Facility (IADF) feature of IMSADF II. The method provides a migration mechanism for all IMSADF II users from a batch environment of source maintenance to an ISPF/TSO environment of source maintenance through IADF. It is applicable to other systems in which source code is to be converted to a table format. Previously, the IMSADF II user who desired to use IADF to maintain rule definitions had to enter the rule definitions for the user's existing applications interactively into IADF.
