Dear nanda,

on mainframes or windows or on any other platform there are some jobs which needs to run regularly, at a particular time.

Daily weekly or yearly
For example your credit card or mobile bill job will run every monthy.

These jobs can be scheduled on mainframes using schedulers like CA-7,CA-5,ESP
If u want more information let me know.

HI Surya,

We can easily schedule any job using CA7.

CA7 is job scheduller developed by CA. For schedulling job you need to contact your operation, because y can not schedul job in Ca7 as you may not have access to it.

Hope this helps

Regards
Rupesh

Hi,

CA7 is scheduller which is use to schedule the job and run at perticular time and we can add dependencies also to run the job. for example, if u have two jobs says A and B. you want to run A job at 8 PM daily and B after A. then you schedule A at 8 PM and add dependencies on B of A

If you want more material you can search teh forum you will get lot of material.

Hope this helps
