HI karthik1680,

If there are 10 steps with step names as step1, step2...step10. You want to execute exclusively step 5 and step 10 only right. Then In Job card use restart = step5. Then step5 is executed directly without executing first step. We can't use condition codes in JOB statement as it is ignored for execution of first step If I am correct. If you want to execute step10 write COND=((0,lt,step10),even) in EXEC statement of step5. Then step10 is executed even if step5 is not executed successfully.

Mike.

karthik,

Unit testing is a standard process followed in software dev life cycle flow.
Its already explained in prior topics.
It is appreciated if you could search this topic in this forum.

Hi Karthik,

Coming back to your original question.

I have seen this question being posted in the forum many times can you please let me know under what situations one needs to execute the fifth step of the job and then directly the tenth one.
Could you please provide some practical example if possible.

regards,
David.

Hi Karthik,

UNIT TESTING: It is nothing but testing a single module which consists of your modifications according to Fundamental Description.

How to perform: It is usually performed with a debugging tool Xpeditor. I dont know the other ways of testing.

Where to give the inputs: If you have idea about xpeditor, I can go further. Usually we will give data member as a INPUT data for xpeditor. We can also give data filea as an input. IF there is no such inputs, we can give manually by the LINE commands KEEP,KEEPE,KEEPH in the xpeditor itself.

check the logic: If we want to check only our modifications in the module, then we have to place a brakepoint with B as command at the starting line of your modifications. With the help of F9 and F12 functions you can go along with the flow.

Regards,
Mike.
