Using NDM you can transfer a file from One mainframe to anothar.

Yes you can trigger a job on another mainframe using NDM strp.

You request CONNECT:Direct services in the batch environment through the
Batch Interface program DMBATCH. When you submit a job that contains
the CONNECT:Direct commands as SYSIN input, DMBATCH reads the
input stream and processes the requested functions.
DMBATCH supports all CONNECT:Direct commands.

Your Batch Interface job must meet the following requirements:

- You can't use process statements instream. Use the SUBMIT command with
a pre-existing process that contains the process statements.

- DMBATCH processing of the SUBMIT is asynchronous; the batch job is notified of a
successful SUBMIT, but not whether the COPY itself is executed.

- The first command in the instream must be a SIGNON command.

- Each new CONNECT:Direct command must start on a seperate line. You can
split a command across more than one line using the continuation mark.

Sample job Stream to run the Batch Interface:

Code:

//DMBATCH  EXEC PGM=DMBATCH,PARM='YYSLYNN'                 
//STEPLIB  DD   DISP=SHR,DSN=CD.LINKLIB     
//DMPUBLIB DD   DISP=SHR,DSN=CD.PROCESS       
//DMMSGFIL DD   DISP=SHR,DSN=CD.MSG       
//DMNETMAP DD   DISP=SHR,DSN=CD.NETMAP   
//NDMCMDS  DD   SYSOUT=* <= This is optional
//DMPRINT  DD   SYSOUT=*                             
//SYSIN    DD   DATA                                       
  SIGNON USERID=(USERID,PASSWORD)
  SUBMIT PROC=PROCESS MAXDELAY=UNLIMITED                 
  SIGNOFF                                                 
/*

CONNECT:Direct is a peer-to-peer file-based integration middleware optimized for
assured delivery, high-volume and secure data exchange between enterprises. It moves
files containing any type of data across multiple platforms, multiple file systems, and
different media types.

The major components of CONNECT:Direct OS/390 are:

- Data Transmission Facility (DTF), which executes user commands and processes.

- Application Program Interface (API), which enables user interfaces to communicate
with the DTF.

- User interfaces, such as the Interactive User Interface (IUI), browser end
user interface (EUI), the batch interface (DMBATCH), and the CICS interface.

- Transmission Control Queue (TCQ), which is a VSAM RRDS dataset that stores
processes that are executing, queued for execution, held for retry, or held
for future execution.

The CONNECT:Direct process can include many automation options. Some of the
typical ones are:

- RUN JOB. The RUN JOB statement allows a job to be submitted through the JES
Internal Reader. The job must reside in a dataset that is on the node that will
be executing the statement.

- RUN TASK. The RUN TASK statement allows a user program to be executed on the
specified node. The RUN TASK statement is designed so that the process waits until
the task completes before the next process step executes.

- sUBMIT. The SUBMIT statement allows another process to be submitted to either
node.

For more information, please refer to the following documents:

- CONNECT:Direct OS/390 Administration Guide.
- CONNECT:Direct Process Statements Guide.
- CONNECT:Direct OS/390 User's Guide.

Your batch interface job must meet the following requirements:

  • You cannot use process statements in the job stream. Use the SUBMIT command with a preexisting Process that contains process statements.

  • The Process you submit resides in the CONNECT:Direct Public Process Library, allocated to the DMPUBLIB DD statement in the DMBATCH JCL. If the Process does not reside in the CONNECT:Direct Public Process Library, use the DSN parameter of the SUBMIT statement to indicate the location of the Process.

Are any standard models available for the process? Because we are having some model processes like MODEL00, MODEL01, NTCMD01,etc. So many options are specified within those processes. I couldn't understand functionality of those processes and purpose of those options.

The standard Process models start with the "at" symbol (@):

@COPY
@EIF
@ELSE
@EXIT
@GOTO
@IF
@PROCESS
@RUNJOB
@RUNTASK
@SUBMIT

The equivelent Process models that start with the pound sign (#) are the same, just without the comments.

The entire process is described in detail in the "Connect:Direct OS/390 User's Guide" Chapter 7 (Building, Modifying, and Submitting Processes) in the section titled "Using Statement Models".
