i got a little problem. I'm working on my bachelor thesis and I have to write a program which is called by an other programm (let's say "Controller" to this calling programm and "Router" to the called programm).
There are many different Controllers working on a z/OS system initialized by different jobs with differen jobnames. My Router need to know which Controller it was called from. My idea is to analyze the address space my Router is running in. Every Controller got its own address space. So if there are any information about the job creating the address space in the address space, I could solve the problem. I can't solve the problem by adding Parameters, because the interfaces are allready definded.
Do you think it is possible to get the information by analyzing the address space?
Do you know if there is a better solution?
Where can I get information about analyzing the address space? (there are millions of manuals! maybe you can give me a hint
PS My mainframe knowledge is limited. I'm working on a z/OS system for 0,25year now.
