Hi,

Is there a way to trigger a TWS application using a REXX program or a PL1 program.
The catch is I cannot involve JCL in any capacity.

Using REXX and JCL we can submit TWS applications, I am aware of that.
The challenge is to do it using only REXX (or PL1)

Appreciate all the help.

Cheers

The requirement is to trigger a TWS application using a REXX or a PL1 program without using the JCL.

The program will be launched through a JCL.

kaushik, I'm going to play the Devil's advocate here, and pretend that I have no technical knowledge of TWS. What do you do in, using your terms, "REXX and JCL" that can't be done solely in REXX? What does a batch job do that you can't replicate with REXX exclusively?

Thanks Peter for the reply.
My requirement is slightly different.

The project that i am working on is a TWS upgrade. We are moving from TWS v 8.2 to TWS v8.5.
Few of the programs have CA7 scripts used to demand jobs. CA7 scripts are not compatible in this newer version of TWS
So we are replacing all the CA7 code with TWS code.
One of the PL1 programs has CA7 script coded in such way that jobs are demanded during the execution of the program.
So, the idea here is to demand jobs while the control is within the program.

Can this be done using TWS commands?
