This book is the first book in -The Minimum You Need to Know- family of books by Logikal Solutions. As the family expands they will cover an increasing variety of topics. To start the family off write, it will begin by covering the most robust and stable clustered operating system in the world. There are two main intents of this book. The first intent is to allow developers who know at least one of the covered languages on another platform to quickly come up to speed on the OpenVMS platform. The second is to assist current OpenVMS developers finding themselves having to work with a different language their current language become productive. A single application is developed over and over again in each of the languages. Both RMS Indexed file development and relational development are covered in the book. When working with MySQL only the C language is covered. The accompanying CD-ROM contains the source code developed in the book. By being able to compare the source code for the same application in different languages the reader can quickly get a feeling for the design trade offs and benefits of each language covered. The screen handler covered is FMS. While this may be one of the oldest, if not the oldest, screen handling/forms development packages on OpenVMS, it does have a very large base in production systems. If you are new to the OpenVMS environment you will encounter it. Once you know this forms management system you should be able to quickly pick up the other screen handling/forms products on this platform.-
