ADABAS Course Overview

ADABAS Course Overview

The ADABAS course provides a comprehensive understanding of the Adabas database management system, renowned for its high performance and reliability in enterprise environments. It is designed to help learners gain a solid grasp of Adabas fundamentals, its unique architecture, and how it compares and contrasts to traditional relational database management systems (RDBMS).

Module 1 introduces Adabas, offering an overview of its capabilities and structure while emphasizing its adaptability as a database solution. Students will learn the key differences between Adabas and RDBMS and understand the Adabas architecture.

Module 2 dives into Adabas Data Storage, detailing data storage mechanisms and the efficient data compression techniques used by Adabas.

Module 3 explores the ADABAS Associator, crucial for data retrieval, and explains the inverted list and other associator structures which play a vital role in data indexing.

Module 4 covers the ADABAS Work Dataset, which is essential for operation recovery (autorestart), resolution of complex searches, and ISN list storage.

Module 5 gives an overview of the utilities provided by Adabas, such as AdaRep, for database maintenance and reporting.

Module 6 addresses how to access the database through direct calls, including the types of calls, processing, and understanding response codes.

Module 7 bridges Adabas with the Natural programming language, explaining how Natural can interact with Adabas using direct calls.

Finally, Module 8 concludes the course with a class review and wrap-up, ensuring that learners have a firm understanding of all topics covered.

By completing this course, learners will be well-equipped to work with Adabas in various capacities, from database administration to application development, leveraging its robust, adaptable, and efficient data management capabilities.

This is a Rare Course and it can be take up to 3 weeks to arrange the training.

Course Prerequisites

To ensure that participants can fully benefit from the ADABAS course offered by Koenig Solutions, we recommend the following minimum prerequisites:

  • Basic understanding of database concepts, including the differences between hierarchical, network, and relational databases.
  • Familiarity with data storage concepts such as data types, indexing, and file organization.
  • Knowledge of general programming principles and experience with at least one programming language (e.g., COBOL, Java, or C#) is advantageous, although not strictly necessary.
  • An understanding of file handling and data manipulation within software applications.
  • Willingness to learn new database management system concepts specific to ADABAS.
  • For modules involving Natural, some prior exposure to the Natural programming language or other fourth-generation languages (4GL) would be helpful but not essential.

These prerequisites are designed to provide a foundation upon which the ADABAS course content will build. A solid grasp of these concepts will help participants navigate the course successfully and apply the knowledge gained in practical scenarios.
