Hi,

Is there any TSO/ISPF command to copy the particular job's JCL (shown when using 'SJ' command before the job) to a particular dataset or display it in TSO terminal?


I know the TSO command 'OUTPUT' to copy/Display the JES messages of a job.
Here the JCL present in JESJCL is expanded one.What I need is the JCL
present when using 'SJ' (showjcl) command.

Also let me know if i am missing anything here??


Thanks,
Arun

After your "SJ" line command, why can't you simply do a CREATE primary command and create a new data set or PDS member at that point? Am I not understanding your question?

Read up on the SDSF commands as per the help screens. Especially look for XDC - which is actually a concatenation of 3 line commands.

Thanks for the response.


Hi Terry,

Actually I want to copy the JCLs for the list of jobs.Doing it manually is time consuming.So, I wanted to code a rexx which takes jobnames as input and
copy the JCLs in a file.

So, basically I want to invoke SDSF from Rexx,Is there any possibility??

Hi Arun,
This may be silly, but just a try forgive me if its wrong.

After extracting JES with expanded JCL, issuing X all, F all //, del all x in ispf command using rexx.
Then we might have only JCL lines(I am not sure about sysin and instream lines)


Thanks:-)
Basha.

Hi Arun,

I have been using the below to extract JCL from JES log.

/* REXX */
/* =====================================================================
GETjcl will get the jcl from JES
PLEASE DONT CHANGE THIS MACRO.
================================================================== */
/* TRACE ?R */
"isredit macro () NOPROCESS "
"isredit HILITE JCL "
"isredit HILITE PAREN "
"isredit HILITE LOGIC "
"isredit HILITE RESET "
"isredit exclude all "
"isredit find all ' //' 10 12 "
"isredit find all ' /*' 10 12 "
"isredit delete all x "
i = 0
"isredit (LastLine) = LINENUM .ZLAST"
do until i >= LastLine
i = i + 1
j = 0
do until j >= 5
j = j + 1
"isredit SHIFT ( " i
end
end
Return

I sure this will work. Let me know after testing.

Thanks
Basha

Hi Basha,

Thank you.I too thought the option intially.But as you mentioned instream sysin is the issue.Basically I am loking for how to invoke SDSF thru REXX.


Hi Terry,

You got it right.I am going thru the tutorial.Mean while if you can provide me a simple
example of invoking any SDSF command in rexx it will be helpful.


Thanks,
Arun

Use the SEARCH button above

Type SDSF in the search fields and select only the CLIST & REXX forum.

Press ENTER and you will find lots of useful code snippets

Thanks Terry, I just learned of REXXHELP. It seems very useful. There are numerous examples there, in the 'examples' page.

Hi all,

From my reference to older posts and manuals I confirmed 'SJ' is not available when invoking SDSF in batch and rexx since it uses ISPF service.

see the post below,

http://ibmmainframes.com/about37574.html

So, the only option is constructing JCL using JESJCL.

Thanks,
Arun

a quick and dirty POC
I just plugged in MY job number


the input jcl (submitted)
Code:

 ****** ***************************** Top of Data ******************************
 000001 //ENRICO9 JOB (ACCT),'ZSTEPS',NOTIFY=ENRICO,
 000002 //             CLASS=A,MSGCLASS=X,MSGLEVEL=(1,1)
 000003 //S1   EXEC PGM=IEFBR14
 000004 //SOMEDD    DD *
 000005 AA
 000006 BB
 000007 CC
 ****** **************************** Bottom of Data ****************************


the result a quick and dirty say
Code:

Amazing Enrico !!!! Works perfectly.

This is what I expected.it is worth for the one week.Thanks a lot!!


Meanwhile I just want to clarify some of my queries in the code,


(1) I believe the below codes are not needed for this purpose ( Copying 'JCL' from a job)

Code:
PARSE SOURCE _SYS _HOW _CMD .   
_DBG = 0                       
                               
PARSE ARG ARGS                 
ARGS = SPACE(ARGS)             
ARGC = WORDS(ARGS)             

IF _DBG = 1 THEN DO                                               
    VLIST = RXVARS()                                               
    DO V = 1 TO WORDS(VLIST)                                       
       VNAME = WORD(VLIST, V)                                     
       SAY LEFT(VNAME,20) VALUE(VNAME)                             
    END                                                           
END                                                               
EXIT                                                               
                                                                   
PSA:      PROCEDURE; RETURN                      '00'             
TCB:      PROCEDURE; RETURN     C2X(STORAGE(X2X(PSA(), '21C'),4)) 
JSCB:     PROCEDURE; RETURN     C2X(STORAGE(X2X(TCB(),  'B4'),4)) 
SSIB:     PROCEDURE; RETURN     C2X(STORAGE(X2X(JSCB(),'13C'),4)) 
JOBNUMBR: PROCEDURE; RETURN         STORAGE(X2X(SSIB(),  'C'),8)   
                                                                   
                                                                   
X2X:      PROCEDURE; RETURN D2X(X2D(ARG(1))+X2D(ARG(2)))           


I tried after removing these codes, and it workd same.Please confirm if it is done with some purpose.


(2) Could you please throw some light on the below variables.

Code:
ISFIPUT   = "ON"

Code:
JDDNAME.JDD
&
Code:
JTOKEN.JDD

Code:
ISFDDNAME.1

I can understand JDD=2 since we are using JESJCL,When I gave it 3 it shows JESYSMSG in JDDNAME.JDD.But The file datas shows only JESJCL statements.


(3) Also SJA is not working in online & batch.Is it a special command works only in Rexx?? If so how it is working without ISPF service??



Thanks,
Arun

none of that ...
just the consequence CUT and PASTE and REUSE icon_cool.gif

there are quite a bit of leftovers lines of code in the snippets I post

ISFINPUT according to the manuals controls the retrieval of inline data
( but ... I just tested and it looks like it does not make any difference )

as I said the snippet is a QUICK and DIRTY thing
so instead of using constants ( assuming 2 for the JESJCL <dataset> )
the <dataset> stem should be searched for the proper <dataset>


SJA is supposed to work only for the REXX interface

anyway the SDSF manual is still very imprecise in the description of some facilities
so You will have to experiment a bit

for example using SJA all the <datasets> return the jcl

follow on ...
rxvars is a REXX external function used to find out the names of all the rexx variables hanging around


I found it pretty useful to understand the REXX SDSF interface
quite a few variables are wrongly listed/described in the manual

just use it after every invocation of a REXX sdsf service

and You will gain a lot of understanding on how things work

see here the source and the supporting macros

http://ibmmainframes.com/viewtopic.php?t=59657&highlight=rxvars

here is how to use it ...

Code:
vlist = rxvars()
do v = 1 to words(vlist)
   vname = word(vlist, v)
   say vname value(vname)
end


P.S.

sdsf batch authorization checking works in a different way from the tso one

thats the reason why I have seen quite a few complaints about things working
under TSO and not when invoking the interface from batch
