Different classes for different steps

Postby anilvaloor » Wed Jan 23, 2008 5:29 pm

Is it possible to have different classes for different steps ina cobol program.
eg: Step1 class=a
Step1 class=b
Step3 class=3

Thanks in advance-

Huh?? COBOL programs have PROCEDURES, not STEPS. And, I've go to admit, I've never heard of the concept of a CLASS in a COBOL program. Of course, I'm not a COBOL guy, so who knows.

Hello,

No, steps cannot have "different classes".

When a job is submitted, it has a class associated. The entire job is run in a partition/initiator that supports the execution class of the job.
Hope this helps,
