Queue and Scratch Queue and Scratch eguns (Programmer) (OP) 17 Nov 02 04:15 Can anyone tell the difference between Queue and Scratch Recrods in IDMS and when each can be used ?Thanks. RE: Queue and Scratch OrionsArrow (Programmer) 24 Mar 03 22:43 SCRATCH records and QUEUE records are used to store some information, temporarily to be used by another process, program or dialog. SCRATCH records disappear when the CV terminates, or when the run-unit ends. A scratch record can be used by other processes, dialogs within that run-unit.QUEUE records remain in the system for a time specified by the programmer, and are unaffected if the CV terminates. A Queue record can be used by different run-units.For example, in an online system, someone may request reports to be created, then he signs off. The info went into a queue record, which is read by the nightly batch job. RE: Queue and Scratch janeidms (Programmer) 8 Nov 05 14:46 We have been told that the queue feature has been replaced by something else and is no longer supported in IDMS. Does anyone know what the replacement is?
