Related Test Data Management

File-AID/RDX offers developers and database administrators an efficient way to extract, load, protect and delete synchronized subsets of related Db2 and MVS data. It is also used to create and populate test tables that accurately reflect production relationships using a relevant subset of data, all without coding SQL or writing independent programs.

When Db2 or MVS data is related to IMS data, you can use File-AID for IMS to extract the related IMS data. With File-AID/RDX, developers and database administrators can gain more control of extracts and extract-related Db2 data from the most recent full Image Copy using IBM DB2 Batch Utility (DSNUTILB).

  • Extract and load related subsets of data from multiple databases and files
  • Ensure all test conditions are met by selecting the precise application test data you need
  • Customize test data for a particular application and specific conditions
