9122: Discussion - The Future of AMODE 64 for COBOL and PL/I

Wednesday, March 2, 2011: 6:00 PM-7:00 PM
Room 206A (Anaheim Convention Center)
Speaker: John Monti (IBM Corporation)

LE's AMODE 64 support currently is C/C++ only and the entire application must be AMODE 64. This is quite restrictive. What is needed for the future? More languages? Access to data above the bar from AMODE 31 applications? Calls to and from AMODE 64 from AMODE 31? Something else? The IBM speaker will lead a discussion on possible future directions but will also look for your input on what you want and what you need over the next few years to begin exploiting the power of all that storage above the bar.


This BOF will be an expansion of some of the discussions that might be included in the prior LE Futures session (1581) and will discuss possible ways that AMODE(64) might be exploited in COBOL and PL/I applications. The information will be purely speculative, but is intended to provide the views of System z users to the IBM developers for consideration should AMODE(64) ever be implemented.
