Installing modules

The installation of AS/400 IBMI engines goes together with the installation of libraries, sub-systems and tables, which are all listed in this section.

  • Two libraries are installed on AS/400 IBMi-i5:
    • DD_V4, which contains the Talend Change Data Capture programs. It is strongly recommended that you do not introduce or modify any object in this library.

      An update will replace all contents of the library.

    • DD_USRDATA contains the parameter definition repository of all the distributions for this source, along with your customized data and your setup.

  • A sub-system, DATA_DIST, is initiated by default. This sub-system is delivered in the DD_USRDATA library. 

    The Jobs are associated with a jobd related to the Job type. 

    The following jobd are included in the DD_USRDATA library:

    Jobd name Description


    For the TCP/IP daemon.


    For source programs.


    Jobd for target program.


    Jobd for the manager.


    Jobd for the Jobs run on starting up the sub-system.

    By default, when the sub-system is started up, the STRDD command is triggered. Just start the sub-system using the STRSBS DD_USRDATA/DATA_DIST command to make the product operational. The source (CLP) of the program started by the command is given in the DD_V4/QSAMPLE file. If you want to change its contents, you must first copy the QSAMPLE source file into another library (DD_USRDATA for example).

  • SCRIPT_JSON, DD_TUN_DST, DD_METADTA, DD_GX_SCRT and DD_PARAM tables for all sources are automatically created in Talend Change Data Capture repository database.
