4 MAPPER MAPPER RunA MAPPER Run lets you take the manual commands that you do frequently to develop a specific result, and create a program that will develop the same result, just by executing it.A MAPPER Run is a script, or a sequence of executable commands, stored in a report.MAPPER runs are stored in the same kind of reports as MAPPER data.
5 MAPPER Run LanguageThe Run Language or command set is an extension of the manual commands.In almost all cases there are run commands that are equivalent to the manual functions.There are many run commands that have no manual equivalent, mainly in the display and formatting of data.An example of a MAPPER run is the graphic commands. All of the chart commands are actually MAPPER runs. PCME is another example.
6 MAPPER Run Example Find all the records in 2B0 where STCD = IP Sort by CustCodeMatch on ProductType, copy ProducCost from 1C0Display the result
8 MAPPER Run Registration A run must be registered to executeby the MAPPER CoordinatorRuns can be registered for general use, or restricted.DepartmentUser-IDStationTime of day
9 MAPPER Run Registration The same run name can be registered for different departments or different people – and be something entirely different!Point to 2 different scriptsThe same script report can be registered as multiple run names.Internal logic governs behavior
10 MAPPER Create a Drawer GENZERO – Create a new drawer REGDRW – Register drawer for access
17 MAPPER @SRH Search @ SRH,0,D,002 d 'REP','CAT' \ ,MRP,TAPE . Search for records where REP = MRP and CAT = TAPE@ SRH,0,D,002 d 'REP','CAT' \ ,MRP,TAPE/,JIL,MISC .Search for records where (REP = MRP and CAT = TAPE) or(REP = JIL and CAT = MISC)
18 MAPPER @SRH Search @ SRH,0,D,002 d 'REP','QTY' \ ,AEF,10/r,AEF,50 . Search for records where REP = AEF and QTY is in the range of 10 to 50@ SRH,0,B,002 'ShipDate' .Search for records where ShipDate is not blank.
19 MAPPER @SRH Search@ SRH,0,D,002,,,0175 d 'REP' \ ,AEF/,MRP <vfound>i4 .Search for records where REP = AEF or MRP. Variable <vfound> contains the number of records found. If none found, go to label 0175.@ SRH,018,H,014 dl(*.) 'REP' ,AEF .Exclude trailer lines from the result.
20 MAPPER @SOR Sort@ SOR,0,D,002 '' \ 'REP','CAT','QTY' ,1,2d,3n .Sort the data by REP, then by CAT (desc), and finally by QTY.The n option causes data to be treated as numeric, so that 9 is less that 11.

Go to LIN+1 if there is no 3rd backslash in the variable.@ LCV,LIN+1 b99 <Path> '\' <pos>i3,<occ>i3 .Find the 99th backslash character in the <Path> variable. Most likely, there are not 99 backslash characters, so we go to LIN+1. The variable <occ> contains the number of backslash characters in <Path>.@ LCV,LIN+1 b<occ> <Path> '\' <pos>i3 .Find the last backslash character in the <Path> variable, since now we know how many there are.
41 MAPPER @LCV Loc, Chg in a variable @ LCV,LIN+1 t$ <txtFrom> ' '/'' .Remove any embedded spaces <txtFrom>@ LCV,LIN+1 '' <string> 'Cat'/'Horse' .Change all occurrences of 'Cat' to 'Horse' in the variable <string>. Changing to a longer value works as long as there is room in the variable. If the new string is too long, it is truncated.

148 MAPPER Update Commands There are several commands that combine their operation with the update capability.Search, Match, Calculate are three.These command will have a new call:Search update is SUMatch update is MAUCalculate update is CALU
149 MAPPER Update Commands First think of these commands as their original operation. For example, with Search we search for a specific string of information in a specific field or column. The result is a result containing only the lines of information the met the search criteria.Search Update works the same way, but now we can make a change to this result and have that change placed back into the original report.We could also delete these lines from the original report, or extract them out of the original report and create a new result containing just those lines.
150 MAPPER Update Commands Update (UPD) takes the current result on display and places information back in the original report.Delete (DEL) takes the current result and deletes it from the original report.Extract (EXT) takes the current result and deletes it from the original report and displays the deleted information as a result.

165 MAPPER Legacy app. logic Enterprise serverInputBIS runNT Server@CALLrequestProcessThis slide illustrates how to use the business logic of a legacy MAPPER application, but bypass the legacy presentation mechanism. (The legacy application can also continue to run in the traditional terminal environment.)You need to add Cool ICE entry and exit points in the 2200 run. The Cool ICE entry point is just after the point in the run where the run INPUT$ to gets its input from the screen. Data passed from the Cool ICE service provides the same values as normally come from the screen.At this point the internal logic of the run can proceed, since the run has the variables it expects, not knowing or caring where they came from.The Cool ICE exit point is just before the run would normally do its terminal display. The run builds a data result for the Cool ICE service and returns it to the Cool ICE service.New code is needed in the 2200 run to handle loading the variables and building the data result, as well as a flag to ensure that the new code is not executed in the old environment.Data returnedOutput

This is what executes the legacy run logic on the 2200.The 2200 routine finished This gives control back to the Cool ICE service, which retrieves the data result from the 2200 and closes the connection.The Cool ICE service now has the data from the 2200 run in its own local result, and can use it to build the Web page.

By using the correct variable names, we can “fake out” the 2200 run into thinking its input came from the traditional MAPPER terminal screen.At Label 101 the existing internal logic of the 2200 run takes place just as it always has.

Back to MAPPER NTThis slide shows an example of the 2200 run building the data result to be returned to the Cool ICE service.The usual technique (my usual technique) is to build a 2-column result containing field names and their values. These usually correspond directly to a set of variable names that the Cool ICE service will use in building the Web page in the Output Area.The exact formatting is not so important. What is important is that the Cool ICE service receives the data it needs in a format it understands.
172 MAPPER MAPPER Relational Interface Overview of MRIUsing MRIRun statementsRDI user interface runMRI configurationSummaryThis is what I plan to cover in our session today.We’ll examine what MRI is, what makes up MRI, and how we use and configure MRI.Then we’ll look at where MRI is today and where we see the product going in the near future.Because of the widely varying experience levels that members of the audience have with MRI, I’ve tried to strike a balance and present the appropriate mix of background and new information.I’ll be describing the capabilities of MAPPER/MRI, rather than conducting a tutorial on the specifics of how to use and configure it. That information is provided in the Unisys documentation listed at the end of my slides.
173 MAPPER MAPPER Relational Interface Connects MAPPER with popular relational databasesORACLE, INFORMIX, SYBASE, ODBCRDMS2200, DMS II, SQLDBLocal and remote databasesFull update capabilityManage databasesAd hoc access and application developmentDepending on the platform, MRI is either a feature of MAPPER itself, or a separate, but associated product.In all cases, the MAPPER Relational Interface is what enables MAPPER to connect with relational databases.Databases such as RDMS2200, DMS II, Oracle, Informix and Sybase.These databases may be on the same machine as your MAPPER system, or they may be on a remote host.Access to the database is not limited to just queries.You have full update access to your relational database.You can insert, change, or delete lines in tables.You can also create and drop entire tables.Using MAPPER/MRI, you can get to your relational database on an ad hoc basis without writing any code.Or you can develop your own applications.This is far more capability that the typical ODBC interfaces available today.
174 MAPPER MAPPER Relational Interface Why use MRI?Access to relational data from within MAPPER without writing SQLMRI handles the details of each databaseFull power of MAPPER is availableExtensive connectivityApplications are portableUsing MAPPER/MRI, you can access your relational data without having to write any SQL code.MRI handles the specific details of each supported database. Internally, MRI creates the specific SQL for that database.Data is returned in a MAPPER result. At this point, the full power of MAPPER is available to further process the data any way you like.MRI has extensive connectivity capabilities, which enable you to connect with several different relational databases on different hardware platforms, using several different communication methods.Because this is MAPPER, applications are much more easily ported between platforms than other types of relational database applications.
175 How can I use MAPPER/MRI? MAPPER MAPPER Relational InterfaceHow can I use MAPPER/MRI?Ad hoc access to databasesManage your databasesApplication developmentFull power of MAPPER is available3-tiered connectivityPut applications and data where they make senseThere are numerous ways in which your site can make use of MAPPER/MRI.You can have ad hoc access to your relational data without writing any code or having to know SQL.This is done using the RDI run, which I’ll be describing in just a moment.Even though the bulk of database access is for queries, MAPPER/MRI also provides full update capability. This lets you manage your database, rather than just read from it.The MRI run statements let your applications connect to your relational data, and you still have the full power of MAPPER to further process your data and run the rest of the application.Since MAPPER/MRI connects to all 3 tiers of the Unisys architecture, you can put your applications and your data on the platforms where they make sense for your site.
