Hi! I have a little issue to present to you. I have been asked to create a job that would be triggered by a file. That is the easy part. I understand that a mainframe job can be triggered by a dataset like this:

DSTRIG WAIT4.DATASET
DSNAME 'MY.DATASET.G-'
TAG 'WAITING 4 D/S'
POSTREQ MAINFRAME_JOB
ENDJOB

However, I am having trouble defining a client/server (c/s) job that is triggered by a mainframe dataset file. Usually, a file-triggered c/s job is defined as shown:

File_Trigger WINNT_JOB
AGENT WINNT_SERVER
FILENAME /ftp/my_folder/my_txt_file.txt
TAG 'WINNT_SERVER'
ENDJOB

Here above, the trigger file is on the server and once it's there, WINNT_JOB runs immediately.

So my question to you is this: How would you trigger WINNT_JOB using a mainframe dataset? If my question isn't clear, please let me know. Thank you.

Have a mainframe job triggered by the data set. The job runs FTP to the server putting a file on the server. Trigger the C/S job based on that file.
