Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section Introduction

This suite of programs will describe how to submit a second job to the internal reader (or INTRDR) from within the currently running job that is executing a COBOL program. For this example the second job (or submitted job) simply executes IEFBR14 with a return to the caller.

The source code, data sets and documentation are provided in a single zipped file called CBLSUB01.ZIP. This zipped file may be downloaded from the SimoTime Web site. In the Windows environment the file names have file extensions. If the JCL member is uploaded to a ZOS Mainframe from the Windows and Micro Focus environment the file extension is dropped.


We have made a significant effort to ensure the documents and software technologies are correct and accurate. We reserve the right to make changes without notice at any time. The function delivered in this version is based upon the enhancement requests from a specific group of users. The intent is to provide changes as the need arises and in a timeframe that is dependent upon the availability of resources.

Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section Example 01, Simple Job Submit

This example contains two (2) JCL members. The first JCL member executes a COBOL program that will submit a job to the internal reader.

The second JCL member uses IEFBR14 to return to caller and is submitted by the COBOL program being executed by the first job.

Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section Submit a Job to the Internal Reader

The following mainframe JCL (CBLSUBJ1.jcl) executes a COBOL program that will submit a second job to the Internal Reader (INTRDR). The COBOL program is coded to read an 80-byte record sequential file (JCLINPUT) and write to an 80-byte record sequential file (SUBTORDR). The COBOL program is a simply file copy.

The DD statements map the COBOL file names to the actual physical locations. The file to be copied is JCLINPUT and the output file is SUBTORDR. The JCLINPUT file is a member of a partitioned data set (PDS) that contains JCL. The SUBTORDR file is mapped to SYSOUT=(,INTRDR). The JCLINPUT is copied to (or submitted to) the internal reader.

Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section The COBOL Program

The following COBOL program (CBLSUBC1.cbl) will submit a job to the Internal Reader. The COBOL program is coded to read an 80-byte record sequential file (JCLINPUT) and write to an 80-byte record sequential file (SUBTORDR). The COBOL program is a simply file copy. The DD statements in the JCL map the COBOL file names to the actual physical locations. The file to be copied is JCLINPUT and the output file is SUBTORDR. The JCLINPUT file is member of a partitioned data set (PDS) that contains JCL. The SUBTORDR file is mapped to SYSOUT=(,INTRDR) and this copies the JCLINPUT to the internal reader (or submits the job to the internal reader).

Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section Example 02, Job Modify & Submit

This example contains two (2) JCL members. The first JCL member executes a COBOL program that will submit a job to the internal reader. The JCL (or source code for the JOB script) will be modified prior to submission.

The second JCL member uses IEFBR14 to return to caller and is submitted by the COBOL program being executed by the first job.

Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section Submit a Job to the Internal Reader

The following mainframe JCL (CBLSUBJ2.jcl) executes a COBOL program that will submit a job to the Internal Reader. The COBOL program is coded to read an 80-byte record sequential file (JCLINPUT) and write to an 80-byte record sequential file (SUBTORDR). The COBOL program is a simply file copy.

The DD statements map the COBOL file names to the actual physical locations. The file to be copied is JCLINPUT and the output file is SUBTORDR. The JCLINPUT file is member of a partitioned data set (PDS) that contains JCL. The SUBTORDR file is mapped to SYSOUT=(*,INTRDR). The JCLINPUT is copied to the internal reader (or submits the job to the internal reader).

Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section The COBOL Program

The following COBOL program (CBLSUBC2.cbl) will submit a job to the Internal Reader. The COBOL program is coded to read an 80-byte record sequential file (JCLINPUT) and write to an 80-byte record sequential file (SUBTORDR). The COBOL program is a simply file copy. The DD statements in the JCL map the COBOL file names to the actual physical locations. The file to be copied is JCLINPUT and the output file is SUBTORDR. The JCLINPUT file is member of a partitioned data set (PDS) that contains JCL. The SUBTORDR file is mapped to SYSOUT=(*,INTRDR) and this copies the JCLINPUT to the internal reader (or submits the job to the internal reader).

The following program will scan the JCL records looking for the CLASS= text string based on the PARM= data passed from JCL. The CLASS will be changed according to the information in the PARM= parameter.

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 simply give us a call or check the web site at http://www.simotime.com
