  17. 17. Advanced Technical Skills (ATS) North America How to get the IMS Universal Drivers The IMS Universal Drivers are shipped with IMS. The IMS distribution libraries (DLIBs) contain the master copy of elements in IMS and can be used to restore SYSMODs in the target library or to rebuild a target environment. These data sets are maintained by SMP/E. The IMS.ADFSJHFS: ADFSJHFS contains the type-2 and type-4 Universal driver Java class libraries used for IMS DB access through the JDBC and DLI for Java interfaces. The TLIB data sets are the IMS SMP/E target libraries (SYSLIBs), and are the libraries that are used to run and use IMS. The IMS HFS data sets contain – SDFSJCIC: Maps to PathPrefix/usr/lpp/ims/imsnn/imsjava/classic/cics/IBM/ © 2012 IBM Corporation – SDFSJCIC: Maps to PathPrefix/usr/lpp/ims/imsnn/imsjava/classic/cics/IBM/ – SDFSJHFS: Maps to PathPrefix/usr/lpp/ims/imsnn/imsjava/IBM/ – SDFSJSAM: Maps to PathPrefix/usr/lpp/ims/imsnn/imsjava/ivp/IBM/ – SDFSJRAR: Maps to PathPrefix/usr/lpp/ims/imsnn/imsjava/IBM/ – SDFSJCPI: Maps to PathPrefix/usr/lpp/ims/imsnn/imsjava/classic/IBM/ – SDFSJTOL: Maps to PathPrefix/usr/lpp/ims/imsnn/imsjava/classic/dlimodel/IBM/ – SDFSJCPS: Maps to PathPrefix/usr/lpp/ims/imsnn/imsjava/classic/classic/ivp/IBM/ – SDFSIC4J: Maps to PathPrefix/usr/lpp/ims/imsnn/ico/IBM/ The IMS Universal JDBC driver (imsudb.jar) is used to make SQL calls with the JDBC API and can be download as a binary file from HFS path: PathPrefix/usr/lpp/ims/imsnn/imsjava/IBM/ where nn is the IMS version you have installed
