Hi,

I have a code which will post JCLs.I need to put a check in program to identify the region in which it runs test or production.

Is there any way to do that.

Thanks,
Dhanya

Hi Dhanya,

Not sure what "post" means.

Alittle more detail might help too. Where does the JCL reside? Does it contain procs? Don't your shop have a prod environment with JCL/source/load libs dedicated? The same w/test.

Or am I misunderstanding your ques?

even if I strongly disagree on the approach
- the application development should not be impacted by system setup
- if the system setup changes, the program must reflect those changes
- the program must keep track of all the possible system combinations

here is a pointer to a code snippet that should be
evaluated and approved by Your support before being used

the best approach would be to pass a parameter
any scheduler can fill the info at submit time,
screening the application from system setup details

Set a working storage copy member in test and production with the same name but different values.
