Hi All,

Please let me know the difference between Trigger job and Successor job in CA7.

Also what is the difference between a Predecessor job and Dependent job in CA7.

Regards,
Manmohan

Find the CA-7 documentation at your site. Look at the CA-7 Primer manual. Find the glossary. Read up on these terms.

Or sit back and think about it.

What does a trigger do ?

What does predecessor and dependant suggest to you.

Sat back. . . .

Thought about it. . .

Thought posting would save any more time sitting back and thinking about it. . .

Neither I thought posting would save my time and nor that I didn't sit back and think. If this question sounds stupid to you, I am sorry I have no regrets.

My question still remains and I hope some one will answer this. The below is the brief...

--------------------------------------------------------------------
Job A is expected not to execute before completion of job B.
--------------------------------------------------------------------
Job Dependency:
UPD,JDEP,A,OPT=A,SCHID=000,DEPJOB=B,LEADTM=99

Job predecessor:
UPD,JOB,A,OPT=A,SCHID=000,PRED=B,LEADTM=99

Both the above serves my requirement, but I want to know the difference.

----------------------------------------------------
Job A and B are not expected to run together
----------------------------------------------------
Case 1:
UPD,JOB,A,OPT=A,SCHID=000,PRED=/B

Case 2: VRM
RM.1
UPD,RM.1,JOB=A,OPT=A,RSRC=ABC,SCHID=0,TYPE=EXC,FREE=F
UPD,RM.1,JOB=B,OPT=A,RSRC=ABC,SCHID=0,TYPE=EXC,FREE=F

Both the above serves my requirement, but I want to know the difference.

Regards,
Manmohan

Actually, the question is, have you looked at anything in the manual? Using a forum as a manual look up service is not a good use of time -- not yours, not ours. Plus, as you've seen, it tends to delay getting answers.

The question did not sound stupid - just lazy.

A more proper way to present your request would have been to read the manual and if there was something that was not clear, post the unclear part of the manual and your question about it (along your actual examples) and someone would be able to clarify.

Once you have actually done the suggested research, let us know if some question remains.

Most of us who support the forum do so to help people learn, not help them be lazy. . .

It's in the 3rd cupboard on the west wall.

Maybe you should ask one of your peers about manual access at your site. We know nothing about your site.

Hello,

If your organization is licensed to use the product, all of the manuals may be downloaded free from the CA Support Site.

Probably, someone has already done this and the material is in a local library.

The documentation is also part of the installation package so definitely there is a local copy somewhere at your site. Finding it will require you to interact with your coworkers, team leader, or site support group.
