Reg: Open VMS Developer

Hi all,

 

I'm new to this forum and this is my first post.

 

For an Open VMS Developer, what are all the certifications available? and which one is the basic to start with. I'm currently dealing with VMS COBOL, DCL, Datatrieve, Oracle RDB, CMS, PCA, Monitor etc.,

 

Thanks,

John Jabez

At the HP Certification web site I can't see any developer specific certifications. There are HP Operating system certifications

What sort of thing are you looking for and what benefits do you think you will gain?

Re: Reg: Open VMS Developer

Ian,

 

I'm looking for a basic certification in VMS so that I can learn things from the Scrap. I did lot of Googling on VMS concepts, but I could not understand most of the terms used.

 

Also, as a developer we do not have access to execute most of the VMS commands used. Hence I need some kind of Guidelines from where to start.

 

Thanks,

John Jabez

Google - The Minimum You Need to Know to Be An OpenVMS Application Developer.

 

There is actually an excellent book with that name!  I highly recommend it.   Find it and buy it.  I think the author actually has a web site.

Also, all of the VMS system documentaiton is online at http://h71000.www7.hp.com/doc/os84_index.html for V7.3, V7.3-2, V8.2/8.2-1, V8.3/8.3-1H1 and V8.4

 

In particular, look at

 

OpenVMS DCL Dictionary

OpenVMS Debugger Manual

OpenVMS Calling Standard

Guide to OpenVMS File Applications

Guide to Creating OpenVMS Modular Procedures

OpenVMS I/O User's Reference Manual

OpenVMS Linker Utillity Manual

OpenVMS Programming Concepts Manual

OpenVMS Record Management Services Reference Manual

OpenVMS RTL Library Manual

OpenVMS System Service Reference manual

OpenVMS Users Manual
OpenVMS System Messages: A Companion Guide for Help Message Users

OpenVMS Utility Routines Reference Manual

 

As well as any language specific reference and runtime manuals and whatever editor and code management/build/profiling/regression testing tools you will be using (I prefer the DECset tools myself).
