NOMAD 8.00

We are pleased to announce NOMAD version 8.00, Select Business Solutions’ latest NOMAD release. It includes performance and efficiency improvements as well as a number of new features to provide additional functionality.

NOMAD 8.00 for z/OS

With NOMAD 8.00, we are excited to bring you performance improvements and new features, including:

  • Data filtering efficiency improvements: The expression following an AND or OR operator in a SELECT command or WHERE clause will be evaluated only when necessary, and the new SELECT DO FIRST/LAST option allows you to control the order in which selection criteria is evaluated.

  • DB2 for z/OS efficiency improvements: ROWSET fetching during a LIST, CREATE, or DB2 SELECT command allows NOMAD to fetch a set of rows with a single call to the DB2 database engine. Comparisons to &NAV and expressions involving DATE/DATETIME items and AMONG arrays are now processed by DB2. And long EXTNAMEs are now supported.

  • CLEAR command efficiency improvements: The CLEAR command now returns storage that was used for the data in varying arrays and for the INSTANCE function.

  • z/OS: NOMAD now fully supports the z/OS VSM ALLOWUSERKEYCSA(NO) security setting.

  • OPTION LISTERROR EVAL: This new option allows you to treat a problem encountered during the evaluation of an expression or an assignment during a LIST or CREATE command as an error.

  • Web charting: Support for generating charts for the Highcharts product from Highsoft has been added, allowing the generation of better and more types of charts without the security issues inherent in using an applet.
