Hi,

I have an easy treive program running successfully for many years now in prod.
i pulled the easytrieve program to a changeman package compiled it and tried executing with RUN JCL i have from prod. it started giving PREMATURE END OF FILE .

At first i got a S30E abend.. i tried solving it looking at CA help site.

title: ABEND S30E AFTER RELEASE UPGRADE
Advantage CA-Easytrieve Plus is not downwardly compatible. When you compile
and linkedit an Advantage CA-Easytrieve program, you can execute it with
the same release level or higher. If you are getting an S30E abend,
you most likely have compiled and link edited the Advantage CA-Easytrieve
program using Advantage CA-Easytrieve Plus 6.4, but are executing that
program with Advantage CA-Easytrieve Plus 6.3 or lower.
This has never been supported by Advantage CA-Easytrieve, but now that
Advantage CA-Easytrieve Plus 6.4 is 31-bit, the S30E abend always occurs.

After solving this i get

B059 PREMATURE END OF FILE
An end-of-file was detected (on the source program input file) before CA-Easytrieve Plus could identify a valid program. Verify that the JCL statements that associate a data set with SYSIN (SYSIPT) are valid. This message is generated when a null source program is encountered.
Do I have to include any more load libraries in the jcl?


JCL i have used is below
Code:

//S100   EXEC PGM=PXXXXX,                         
//            REGION=4096K,                         
//            COND=(0,LT)                           
//STEPLIB  DD DSN=P123L.BATCH.LOAD,                 
//            DISP=SHR                             
//            DD DSN=SYS1.EASYPLUS.LOADLIB,DISP=SHR
                                             
//QT001INN DD DSN=P123P.QT02A060.DDD.XML.RAP2,     
//            DISP=(OLD,KEEP,KEEP)                 
//*                                                 
//QP001UT  DD DSN=123P.QP02A100.DDD.DL286EF,     
//            DISP=(NEW,CATLG,DELETE),             
//            SPACE=(9072,(700,100),RLSE),         
//            DCB=(RECFM=FBA,LRECL=81,BLKSIZE=9072)
//SORTWK01 DD SPACE=(CYL,1)                   
//SORTWK02 DD SPACE=(CYL,1)                   
//SORTWK03 DD SPACE=(CYL,1)                   
//EZTVFM   DD SPACE=(9074,(5000,200))         
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*                       
//SYSOUT   DD SYSOUT=*                       
//SYSOUTS  DD SYSOUT=*                       
//ABNLNODP DD DUMMY                           
//SYSUDUMP DD SYSOUT=E                       
//SYSIN    DD DUMMY                           
//*                                           


The above jcl has been working ok in prod . when i did a fresh recompile of the program from changeman package, the same jcl gives errors.

I have tried searching the post in CA products forum here, but they are not matching my requirements.

Please learn to use the code tags - shown below - very quickly

Code:
 [code] your code in here [/code]



Is the load module in either the STEPLIB or the system defined libraries.

The load module for my easytrieve program is in STEPLIB
P123L.BATCH.LOAD. SYS1.EASYPLUS.LOADLIB was there from production.

Why do you have a blank line in your JCL? thsat would generate a //SYSIN DD * which would override the one later on.
