Hi All,

Can anyone help me out by explaining how to use checkpoint/restart feature in cobol.
I have gone through the forums to find many posts on this but couldn't find appropriate
examples that could have been self explanatory. Could you please provide me with
a sample code to demonstrate the checkpoint feature in cobol (using RERUN clause
i suppose) and also the corresponding JCL.

Thanks and Regards,
Raveendra.

Hi Iknow,

I too need information on RESTART logic in COBOL.

I tried to open the first link provided by you but it says

"Topic not found
The topic that you have requested is not available. The link may be wrong, or you may not have the corresponding product feature installed. This online help only includes documentation for features that are installed."

Could you please provide an alternative source for the information ?

This topic is 4 years old, do you think that URL's pointed to are still
valid after 4 years.

Expat,

thats true, and i appreciate the TS did a search here.
A google search on "checkpoint RESTART COBOL ibm" (i did it
without the quotes) would have brought him here :

Hello,

Checkpoint/restart should not be implemented for a program. This is a major consideration and should be designed for an application or an environment.

Environments that support checkpoint/restart have a methodology already in place and this should be used to add a new participant. Not something gotten from a forum or some general guideline.

IMHO. . .
