Hi,

Thanks for the link.

I also need document which explains how to create Rexx Panels. Through Panels I need to submit jobs. I would like to have information on how to call Panels through Rexx program.

Regards,
Chandrakanth

There's no such thing as "Rexx Panels"*. Maybe I'm wrong, but I think you're talking about File Tailoring Skeletons, which are described in the Dialog Developer's Guide in the link above.

* Although, there is a *REXX Statement in a panel definition that defines a Panel REXX dialog.

ISPF Panels are written in their own "language" (either the "old" language or the "new" DTL).

You can display ISPF panels using any language that can invoke ISPF services, like COBOL, REXX, C, Assembler, NATURAL etc.

The ISPF Dialog Manager is very powerful. You should also become acquainted with edit macros. Its services can be used to create simple as well as complex applications. The entire ISPF/PDF environment uses the facilities. File Tailoring is the common approach for generating JCL or other datasets. It can be combined with other services.

You need to become familiar with the Dialog Test Facility (Option 7 from the ISPF main menu). Dialogs can be debugged using any interactive debugger and you can combine the debugger with Dialog Test Facility.

You will appreciate how a Dialog application can be integrated with DB2, VSAM or other IBM file structures and supports numerous programming languages (as previously indicated)!

Persistence is the key!
