Pass parameter from MPP to BMP



IBM's hierarchical database management system with a Database Manager (IMS DB) and a Transaction Manager(IMS DC)

Pass parameter from MPP to BMP

Postby LotharLochkarte » Wed Nov 24, 2010 4:18 am

Hi,

I want to save a variable that is produced in a MPP somewhere (without using databases) to read it out by an BMP later.

Does somebody know a storage area where I could save this variable? (an area that is unlikely to be overwritten the next few minutes)

Or any other idea?

Thanks! :)

Hello,

Use the database. . .
Hope this helps,

Unfortunately this is no option.

I am looking for a workaround, even it is a dirty one. (This wouldn't be a problem because we will use this solution only in the test environment, not in production.)

the only solution has been already provided.
ims jobs/transactions run in different address spaces,
the only way for them to communicate is thru a database
( without tweaking zOS )

who decided that "that is not an option ( using a dataabase )" ?

Using a database is too much effort for something that is only used in a testing environment.

I thought of a solution like z/OS name/token pairs. With these pairs I can pass parameters between transactions running in the same dependent region...But not between different dependent regions....

just plain laziness, with a childish initial attempt to make it look like a life saving issue

Hello,

How is this dealt with in production?

This is not relevant for production.

When testing our MPPs we don't know in advance in which region this MPP is going to be scheduled. So we have to search all regions (this can be up to 10) for the displays (or even abend information) manually. (we have some REXX to simplify this, but these little tools also have to search the SYSOUTs of all regions to find the displays of the LAST run. And this searching can take some time because the SYSOUTs are quite large...)
