Jump to navigation Jump to search

The CL/1 Server for VM/CMS is a networking software product that provides CL/1 access to the Structured Query Language/Data System (SQL/DS) on a VM/CMS host system. Running on the VM/CMS host, the CL/1 Server works cooperatively with per­sonal computer applications that support CL/1, such as spread­sheets, databases, and word processors running on Apple Macintosh computers and MS-DOS-compatible computers.

A total connectivity solution for VM/CMS includes a client personal computer running an application with embedded CL/1 support, and a VM/CMS host with the CL/1 Server. The CL/1 Server receives requests from the per­sonal computer application, carries them out against SQL/DS, and sends the desired data back to the application for desktop processing.

The CL/1 Server for VM/CMS provides uniform support for CL/1-based applications, regard­less of the type of personal computer used. It works with existing SQL/DS databases, operating under standard VM and SQL/DS security. As a result, per­sonal computer users receive seamless, transparent access to the SQL/DS data that they have been authorized to access.
