  13 //* This 370 Assembler program provides different techniques for
  14 //* using the Write-To-Operator (WTO) macro.
  15 //*
  16 //* This set of programs will run on a mainframe under MVS or on a
  17 //* Personal Computer with Windows and Micro Focus Mainframe Express.
  18 //*
  19 //* Micro Focus Mainframe Express, version 2.5 or later (MFE) with
  20 //* the Assembler Option should be used to Animate or visualize the
  21 //* execution of the sample program.
  22 //*
  23 //* The Animator or Debugger is an excellent tool for visualizing the
  24 //* execution of the individual instructions as they execute.
  25 //*
  26 //* This is a very effective way to become familiar with the 370
  27 //* instruction set.

Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section Scripted Build for Assembler Members

Assembler Load members are created by compiling and linking Assembler Source Members that may include additional copy or macro files. This section describes and demonstrates the process for compiling and linking Executable or non-Executable Assembler members. Each approach uses two (2) command files. The primary command files set the environment at the global level and then calls the second command to do the actual compile and link.

Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section Micro Focus Assembler Command Line

This document will focus on the functionality required to do the basic tasks of compiling and linking Assembler Load Members (programs and/or non-executable load members). For additional details and advance functionality refer to the Micro Focus Product documentation.

Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section Environment Variables

The following provides a quick reference for the environment variables used by the Micro Focus Assembler. Their primary purpose is to define the directory structure for the user environment.

Environment
Variable
Description
SYSLIB This environment variable may define multiple concatenated directories separated by a semi-colon (;). It is used to define the directory that contains the Macro and Copy files used by the Micro Focus Assembler (.MAC and .CPY).
SYSLIST This environment variable defines a single directory. It is used to define the directory for the Assemble and Link listing files (.MAT .PRN .LST).
SYSLIN This environment variable defines a single directory. It is used to define the directory that contains the input members for the Micro Focus Linker (.LIN and .OBJ).
SYSLMOD This environment variable defines a single directory. It is used to define the directory that contains the output member for the Micro Focus Linker (.390 and .MOD).
SYSPARM This environment variable defines a single parameter that is used by the Micro Focus Macro Processor as a substitution parameter for SYSPARM.
MACROEXT This environment variable defines extensions to be used for 370 Macro Files. Multiple extensions may be specified using a comma to separate the extension values. The following is an example for defining multiple extensions.
SET MACROEXT=CPY,MAC
  Environment Variables for Micro Focus Assembler

Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section User Defined Scripted Builds for Assembler

This section is divided into three categories that are described in the following three sub-sections of this documents. The input for each category is Assembler source code. The output for each category will be a load member (executable or non-executable) or an object member. Each category has the capability of compiling and possibly linking multiple source members by reading a file containing a list of source member names.

Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section Configure a Server for EBCDIC

The following provides the "How To" information for creating a batch server that will process jobs that are a mix of JCL, COBOL and Assembler.

The server used by the batch applications will be called SIMOBATE. At the bottom of the home page for Enterprise Server Administration select the "ADD" button. The following describes the primary configuration options needed to submit, execute and review jobs that have been defined (or scripted) using the Job Control Language (JCL Members and Procedures).

Enter a Server Name, select the Working Mode and Click the" Next" button. Click the Radio button for Micro Focus Enterprise Server with Mainframe Subsystem Support and Click the" Next" button a second time.

The following shows the next group of configuration options. For items not shown take the default entry options.

Note: For the following and if not required then un-check the TN3270 and ISC listener boxes

Server Name:
SIMOBATE
System Directory:
C:\SIMOSAM1\DEVL\SYS1\LOGS\SIMOBATE

Click the" Add" button.

The "SIMOBATE" server should be added to the Enterprise Server. When the home screen is redisplay click on the "Edit" button, select the "MSS" tab, select the "JES" tab and then enter the following configuration options for the JES or Job Entry Subsystem.

Note: For the following remember to check the box for the "Job Entry Sub-system enabled".

Job Entry Subsystem enabled: 
 
JES Program Path:
$BASEAPP\LOADLIBE;$BASEAPP\SYS1\LOADLIBE;C:\SimoLIBR
System Catalog:
$BASECAT\CATALOG.DAT
Default Allocated Dataset Location:
$BASECAT\APPL
System Procedure Library:
SIMOTIME.PDS.JCLINC;SIMOTIME.PDS.PROCLIB1
 
 Apply 
 

Click the "Apply" button.

Note: Some environment variables are set prior to starting the server. This needs to be done since some environment variables will be used by ES/MSS and other third-party technologies. The decision was made to define the shared environment variables in one place rather than replicate in the two separate environments.

The next step in the configuration of the JES sub-system is to define the JES initiators and have them start automatically when the JES Server (or sub-system) is started. To do this select the "Initiators" tab then click the "Add" button to add an initiator. The following should be displayed.

Add Initiator...
Name:
Class001
 
Class:
1
 
Description:
Initiator for Class 1 Jobs

Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section Test Cases

This section provides a brief description with links to additional information of the critical test cases. The test cases start with very simple requirements and then progress to the more advanced functions and levels of complexity.

Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section Executable Programs

The following test cases will execute jobs that increase in resource access and usage. The process starts with a validation of basic functions and progresses through access capabilities for system and macro libraries. The final testing validates the COBOL calling interface and access to data files.

Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section A Very Simple Program

This is the first test case. It is a very simple program that is used to test the basic configuration options of the Assembler sub-System for a Micro Focus environment. Successful execution will validate the User environment can access the basic Assembler functions provided by Micro Focus.

Link to Internet   Link to Server   Explore a Very Simple Assembler Program that sets a return code to zero and does a return to the calling program. This program performs the same functions of IEFBR14.

Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section Various Formats of the WTO Macro

This test case is used to test the various formats of the Write-To-Operator Macro. Successful execution will validate the function provided by the Macro and confirm the configuration for the Macro Libraries (or Directories) provided by Micro Focus is correct.

Link to Internet   Link to Server   Explore the Formats for the WTO Macro that will display a message to the console or perform a Write-To-Operator.

Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section Macro Files, Maintain Unique Labels

This test case is used to test the techniques of creating a user macro file that maintains unique labels. Successful execution will validate the function provided by the Macro and confirm the configuration for the User-Defined Macro Libraries (or Directories) is correct.

Link to Internet   Link to Server   Explore the Formats and Guidelines for using Macro Files. The task of maintaining unique labels when using macro files to generate code that includes branch instructions can be a challenge. There are various techniques used to solve this problem and each has its own advantages and disadvantages.

Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section Non-Executable ASCII Members

The Micro Focus Assembler has the capability of producing non-executable load members. It is supported in an EBCDIC-encoded Development environment running on a Windows System. If an application is being moved to an ASCII-encoded environment the following may be required.

Link to Internet   Link to Server   Explore The technology to Generate Non-Executable Load Members from Mainframe Assembler Source Code for use with Micro Focus Enterprise Server on a Windows, Linux or UNIX System.

Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section Company Overview

SimoTime Technologies was founded in 1987 and is a privately owned company. We specialize in the creation and deployment of business applications using new or existing technologies and services. We have a team of individuals that understand the broad range of technologies being used in today's environments. Our customers include small businesses using Internet technologies to corporations using very large mainframe systems.

Quite often, to reach larger markets or provide a higher level of service to existing customers it requires the newer Internet technologies to work in a complementary manner with existing corporate mainframe systems. We specialize in preparing applications and the associated data that are currently residing on a single platform to be distributed across a variety of platforms.

Preparing the application programs will require the transfer of source members that will be compiled and deployed on the target platform. The data will need to be transferred between the systems and may need to be converted and validated at various stages within the process. SimoTime has the technology, services and experience to assist in the application and data management tasks involved with doing business in a multi-system environment.

Whether you want to use the Internet to expand into new market segments or as a delivery vehicle for existing business functions or need assistance with converting non-relational data structures simply give us a call at 415 883-6565 or check the web site at http://www.simotime.com
