Create a WTO message

Postby gvoll » Wed May 12, 2010 4:31 am

I am trying to interface with some existing automation. The existing automation reads WTO messages.

My process would be on an UNIX machine. I can start a job on the mainframe. I just am not aware of an easy way to create the WTO message.

A message with DISPLAY UPON CONSOLE might also work in COBOL.

Hi Bill,

Would the value shown by a /*MESSAGE statement be seen by automation?

Been way too long. . . :oops:

A /*MESSAGE text does appear on SYSLOG (not sure what the routcodes are) but it's at reader time. Probably not what they want.
