Application Programming Interfaces

TABEX/4 offers APIs for object oriented programming languages (JAVA, C++) as well as sequential programming languages (e.g. C, COBOL, PL/1). Thereby, TABEX/4 can be integrated into modern as well as older software applications.

A detailed description about the TABEX/4 Java Application Engine for implementing TABEX/4 Java Applications you'll find here.

For application programming with sequential programming languages  (e.g. C/C++, COBOL, PL/1) the application programming interface uses the Standard Link Convention.

A pool of functions offers the possibility to access table data with various methods such as

  • access via primary key
  • access via secondary key (each table may have an unlimited number of secondary keys)
  • access via sequential search in an arbitrary table column or area
  • access via generic and match code search in an arbitrary table column or area
  • access row by row, a number of rows or the whole table
  • access using a SELECT string quasi identical to SQL SELECT

TABEX/4 is noted for its high-performance table access. If tables are additionally preloaded in ESA data spaces using one of TABEX' utilities, table access is even faster.
