How to reexecute the step after delay time

Postby shyamsaravan » Tue Aug 21, 2012 6:19 pm

Hi;

The Step TEST1 needs to be executed with delay time of 5 minutes for multiple times to avoid the resubmit of the same JCL


//TESTJCL1 JOB (1,2AB,XX-10),'AAAA',MSGCLASS=A,USER=SARETE1 
//TEST1 EXEC TESTWER1,                                               
//           ENV=P,GDP=##,STRPARM=X001####,                         
//           A1AAA011=NNBATCZ0


Can you please give some suggestion to write the JCL

JCL is not a programming language with control structures and you cannot loop -- period.

Furthermore, it is extremely bad programming practice to implement any kind of delay in batch programs.

You need to go back to the start and redesign your process since what you want to do (a) is a BAD IDEA, and (b) won't work no matter what you do.

It's be nice if you tell us what you want to do, possibly then there can be some practical solution to that. Inducing "delay in batch" on zOS was never a good idea, as Robert has said.

If you just want to change the job-name, possibly REXX can be your choice to generate differnt job-names.

Thanks for the reply..In our system we dont have REXX tool..in that JCL the proc TESTWER1 will process the 25000 thousand records,but we have to process 20 lakhs records,so that we are resubmitting the same JCL again and again...To aviod this tedious work.,if any other ways to go in jcl..Please.

Why yes: change TESTWER1 so that it will process all the records.

You mean your shop's 360/195 only has 3 cylinders of DASD available for output? Sounds like you're in a world of trouble, Sunny Jim.
