Koopa 1up

I only just bragged about the first official contribution to Koopa, and here already is a second one. Thanks to Peter Tang Koopa now understands more of:

  • EXEC SQL statements
  • EXEC CICS statements


PS. Here's a teaser from Peter on what he's doing with Koopa:

We are able to run koopa against 20,000 Cobol programs plus another 20,000 copybooks within 4 hours. We have also adapted pig latin (from to include User Defined Functions to extract xml fragments from the results generated by Koopa on a Hadoop cluster for other correlation analysis.

It might be just me, but I find this extremely cool. To paraphrase a well-known slashdot quote: can you imagine a Hadoop cluster of Koopa ? :-)
