Reply with quote

Hi All,

I have the following design requirements to be met.

We have a on-request batch job which updates the records in the database. This batch job uses a file which we manually edit and run the job currently.

Now we have requirement to automate this process. I am novice to MQ series. So I am not sure whether this can be implemented.

Someone suggested the web will pass on the file information to the message queue and then messages will trigger the job. Need your expert advice on getting this implemented or any other design that will suit the current functionality. Thank you!

Thanks!
Toufeeq

Have you checked with your scheduling people for the ways that the scheduling program can be triggered?

Hello and welcome to the forum,

Will the file continue to be edited manually or is the editing to be moved off of the mainframe?

Most scheduling software can be set up to trigger a job on the arrival/creation of a dataset.

I haven't checked with the scheduling people for the program to be triggered, which I will do next.

The editing of the dataset has to be moved off the mainframe as part of automating the process and should be handled by web.

Does web can edit the dataset that the batch job (COBOL-DB2) uses? What are the different scheduling softwares available that support the triggering of this job?

Thanks!

Hello,

Your scheduling people can tell you which is in use on your mainframe. Typically, only 1 is installed . . .

I'm not sure how moving the editing to a different editor automates the process. . . icon_confused.gif

MQ can be configured to start a task when a message arrives. This requires a "trigger monitor" that can be activated by the Queue Manager. We purchased a trigger monitor program from a vendor. The program issued an MVS START command for a started task that submitted JCL.

It looks that you are editing this data at web(or outside mainframe) and sending it to mainframe.

We have several such functionalities. We use MQ series and Q2F adapter. Q2F adapter converts queue messanges and catalogs it into dataset. Corrosponding jobs are scheduled as Dataset triggered through scheduling software (CA7 in my case).

Thanks all for all your inputs.

I am trying to understand which scheduling software is installed on our mainframe to trigger the batch job.

Will keep you posted.

Thanks!
