Hi all,
Is it possible to get the program's level no from Joblog which is run?

Program is stored in Panvalet.

I have to confirm that level no of program in Panvalet and program which is run should be the same.

Please do let me know if you need any info. I am new to use Panvalet. Sorry.

We maintain a VERSION Number in the program and display it when the program begins. I don't think there would be any way of determining the program version from the log without something like that.

Thanks Craq.

Yes. It's correct. But some programs are not having DISPLAY statement to find out.

How to resolve in this case?

The package PMSS, if you have it, will give a Panvalet directory listing, I believe including program version number. If I remember right from 9 years ago, you would be able to list just one program by name.

If you run this special step just before executing the loadmodule to get the date corresponding to the version, then run something like SUPERC or Fileaid to extract the datestamp on the loadmodule, the two listings can confirm the two datestamps are the same, or different, to the human eye. Version number is so private to Panvalet, z/OS will not even try to display the loadmodule version being executed.

I would not get into the hassle of checking at every execution

even if Your company does not have any source version/control/build/promote product

a periodic health check should be enough
but still the task is not easy
I do not know about about othe source control packages
but with SCLM is possible to add info to the load module in order to see the congruence with the corresponding sources

with anything else You must rely on the vicinity of the timestamps of the source and the load

what if for some reason the source was modified and the compile/ling was done after 2 days...
modified on friday evening, compiled/lnked on monday morning
