Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section Introduction

This suite of programs will describe how to use the INCLUDE capability provided with JES and JCL Members. This capability and the information it provides is quite useful when supporting or migrating a batch application and data from a Mainframe System to a Windows System using Micro Focus technologies.

The source code, data sets and documentation are provided in a single zipped file called JCLINC01.ZIP. This zipped file may be downloaded from the SimoTime Web site. This example illustrates the following functions.

Item Description
1 Create a Partitioned Data Set (PDS) for the JCL INCLUDE Members.
2 Show how to code an INCLUDE statement in a JCL Member
3 Show how to get access to the PDS and INCLUDE Member from the JCL Member at execution time
  Describe and Demonstrate the use of an INCLUDE Statement in JCL

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 Quick Start

This section describes the process for defining the PDS for JCL INCLUDE members and executing the sample JCL Member.

Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section Create a JCL INCLUDE Library

This job (JCLINCX1.JCL) is a single step job that will only need to be executed one time. This job will create the catalog entry for the PDS that contains the JCL INCLUDE Members.

C:\SimoSam1\LOADLIB> ezSUB SimoBATA JCLINCX1.

Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section JCL with an INCLUDE Statement

This job (JCLINCJ1.JCL) is a two step job. The 1st step will do housekeeping to delete any previously created files. The second step will use IEBGENER with DD statements to create a new file. The DD Statement for the new file will use parameters that were defined in the INCLUDE member to create a Data Set Name (DSN).

C:\SimoSam1\LOADLIB> ezSUB SimoBATA JCLINCJ1.

//* Text    - Define a PDS using the IEFBR14 with a DD Statement
//* Author  - SimoTime Technologies
//* Date    - November 11, 2003
//* Version - 03.12.15
//*
//* Technically speaking, IEFBR14 is not a utility program because it
//* does nothing. The name is derived from the fact that it contains
//* two assembler language instruction. The first instruction clears
//* register 15 (which sets the return code to zero) and the second
//* instruction is a BR 14 which performs an immediate return to the
//* operating system.
//*
//* IEFBR14's only purpose is to help meet the requirements that a
//* job must have at least one EXEC statement. The real purpose is to
//* allow the disposition of the DD statement to occur.
//*
//* For example, the following DISP=(NEW,CATLG) will cause the
//* specified DSN (i.e. PDS) to be allocated.
//* Note: a PDS may also be referred to as a library.
//*
//* The //*MFE statement is a comment for Mainframe JCL processing.
//* However, in the Micro Focus environment this statement will be
//* used to determine the location of the directory for the PDS.
//*
//* *******************************************************************

//IEFBR141 EXEC PGM=IEFBR14

Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section Summary

The purpose of this suite of programs is to provide an example of how to use INCLUDE statements in JCL Members and to define the catalog entry for the PDS that contains the INCLUDE Members. This document may be used as a tutorial for new programmers or as a quick reference for experienced programmers.

In the world of programming there are many ways to solve a problem. This document and the links to other documents are intended to provide a greater awareness of the Data Management and Application Processing alternatives.

The documentation and software were developed and tested on systems that are configured for a SimoTime environment based on the hardware, operating systems, user requirements and security requirements. Therefore, adjustments may be needed to execute the jobs and programs when transferred to a system of a different architecture or configuration.

SimoTime Services has experience in moving or sharing data or application processing across a variety of systems. For additional information about SimoTime Services or Technologies please send an e-mail to: helpdesk@simotime.com or call 415 883-6565. We appreciate hearing from you.

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
