REXX - BATCHJOB

Postby Halka » Tue Dec 11, 2007 5:58 pm

I have to submit a batch job in REXX. I have a program in which i get inputs from the user. And when i press enter it will start searching the filenames i had given as input, in a pds. i am getting the inputs through a panel. and after giving enter after giving inputs, the screen gets locked . what i want is the jcl must run in background as any other jobs and after it gets executed, i need to get notified that the output report generated successfully. i'm getting the message , but my problem is that the screen gets locked when the job is running. i must be able to submit or do whatever while the search job is running.

COULD ANYONE OF U PLEASE HELP?

I'm not sure I follow your problem. Is your application responsible for locking the screen? If not, I think we'd need to know what is causing that to occur. A normal SUBMIT process does not lock the terminal.

I think its because I'm doing searching. It locks the screen until the search gets over. Is it so for all searching programs?..... In mine it takes some time to search. That is why it gets locked. and I'm submitting the jcl through REXX.Could you please suggest any solutions?
