Abstract:

The most common method of creating and loading a new database is to write a program using the host language macros the database management system provides. As for all software production, the cost of writing this program is high, particularily considering it may be executed only once. The Source to S2K System 2000 Conversion System will generate a FORTRAN program which will load the described source file into the described System 2000 database. The user inputs these file descriptions and the source to target mapping transformations. The systems design is based on a common architecture developed through research of seven current conversion system implementations. This report will present this architecture, detail the design and languages of the Source to S2K Conversion System and comment on its implementation. Appendices include a Users Manual, and examples of generated command files. The system has been implemented in PASCAL in a Control Data 6000 series computing environment.
