Lysine

Lysine is an SSIS (SQL Server Integration Services) custom component that enables the inline conversion from EBCDIC (including redefines and packed decimal fields) into an ASCII byte stream to use within the pipeline in your SSIS package.

Getting Started

The major benefits of Lysine are two-fold:

  1. It saves you from having to write a pre-processor to unpack and convert the binary data.
  2. It prevents you from having to pre-process the data saving an extra, and many times costly, trip through the data.

Features

  • Conversion of EBCDIC Field Types
    • Comp3
    • Zoned
    • Redefines
    • Occurs
    • Occurs Depending On
    • Binary
    • Regular
  • Realtime preview of data as file definition is setup in an intuitive UI
  • Inline processing of data -- a single pass through the data.

Proline

Proline leverages the years of experience working with customers throughout the world and in a multitude of industries, to convert EBCDIC data from mainframe sources into data that is useable on modern platforms. Proline has been designed by developers for developers. It's a .NET class library that allows a developer to leverage Amino Software's expertise, with a few simple lines of code, so that the focus can be on building business logic rather than converting archaic binary data formats.

You need Proline if:

  1. Your application requires working with EBCDIC data.
  2. The application you are building is working with that data somewhere other than a database.
  3. You don't quite understand the difference between COMP-3 and a Redefine field
  4. You want to save you and your team months of development time.

Features

  • Conversion of EBCDIC Field Types
    • Comp3
    • Zoned
    • Redefines
    • Occurs
    • Occurs Depending On
    • Binary
    • Regular
  • Compatibility with the Lysine definition XML format (same format produced by our online Copybook Parser).
  • Efficient, single pass conversion, using low level memory operations to squeeze performance out of the data conversion routines internal to the library.
