We have a requirement where we need to catalogue a VSAM dataset from C on Z/Os. I have to develop the program in C because of some other requirement. I came accross BPXWDYN through some forums but dont really know how to use it. It would be really helpful can throw some light on hoe this can be done and also a working example will be very useful.
Thanks a lot for the replies guys.
I am not interested in using Cobol as we need to interact with MVS from an OMVS environment. So What I am thinking is just using C for the entire programming and I need to dynamically build the VSAM file name.
I am thinking like something you were telling too establishing the TSO session and then invoking the TSO commands to define cluster but am not getting any working examples or some standard routines which I can use. I can see that we can use programs like IKJEFTSR and IKJTSOEV but am very new to those too. So dont know exactly how to implement them.
Do you have any ideas or "to Go to" avenues for help.
