Anubex DataMatch is a powerful, scriptable database comparison tool. It enables automatic validation of batch job results, and can help reduce testing effort dramatically.
Anubex DataMatch and its sibling product TestMatch (for automated on-line testing) form the core of the Anubex Automated Testing offering for mainframe migration projects. DataMatch also works closely together with DataTurn, for automated data conversion.
Anubex mainframe migrations guarantee 100% functional equivalency. This means that for instance running a converted batch job on the new platform should yield exactly the same results as running the original JCL job on mainframe.
To prove this, Anubex DataMatch basically compares the database state e.g. after running a converted batch job on Linux or Windows with the “desired” database state e.g. after running the original JCL job on mainframe.
While this sounds straight-forward at first, several issues make this a challenging task:
Anubex DataMatch is designed with these challenges in mind. The result is a unique and flexible tool that makes batch testing a breeze in any situation.
DataMatch is most often used in the context of mainframe migrations and particularly in testing of JCL conversion. However it is just as useful in various other situations. For instance:
