12. Stingray Demo Applications¶

Perhaps the most important use case for Stingray is to write data extract applications. This is shown below in Application Level Data Validation Technique. We can also handle COBOL file conversions. This is shown below in Reading COBOL Files.

Additionally, we can use Stingray to provide assurance that our files and our applications both use the same conceptual schema. We need several kinds of assurance.

  • How do we confirm the schema of a given file?
  • More importantly, how do we confirm that an application can successfully use a file?
