Data migration from IMS to DB2

Data migration from IMS to DB2

Hi,

      We are developing data migration programs to convert IMS to DB2
data. We have two methods. Wanted to Know which one takes less time and
the reason behind it ?

Method 1 :

     Use the IMS unload utility and get the IMS database into a single
GSAM file. Write a program which reads this GSAM file and builds up the
DB2 load file.

Method 2:

    Read the IMS database directly and build the DB2 load file.

Thanks,
