This suite of programs provides sample JCL for compiling and linking programs on the mainframe.

The source code, data sets and documentation are provided in a single zipped file called UTLDAT03.ZIP. This zipped file may be downloaded from the SimoTime Web site. The file names have file extensions. When uploaded to the mainframe from the PC 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 JCL Members to Compile & Link

The following describes by example the JCL Members used for compiling and linking programs on the mainframe.

Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section Compile a COBOL Program

The following is an example of the mainframe JCL (UTCOBCOM.jcl) needed to compile a COBOL program. and create an object member.

The job may be executed on the mainframe as an MVS batch job. The JOB and DD statements will require modification prior to execution on a different mainframe environment. The job will not execute on the PC running Micro Focus Mainframe Express. The standard compile process for Mainframe Express should be used.

//SYSLIN   DD  DISP=SHR,DSN=SIMOTIME.DEMO.OBJECT(&MEM)
//SYSIN    DD  DISP=SHR,DSN=SIMOTIME.DEMO.COBOL(&MEM)
//*

Note:  The preceding mainframe job will just create an object member and place the member in the PDS specified by the SYSLIN DD statement. It is a compile only. The next section provides an example of a compile and link.

Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section Compile & Link, Single COBOL Program

The following is an example of the mainframe JCL (UTCOBLNK.jcl) needed to compile and link a COBOL program and create an executable member.

The job may be executed on the mainframe as an MVS batch job. The JOB and DD statements will require modification prior to execution on a different mainframe environment. The job will not execute on the PC running Micro Focus Mainframe Express. The standard compile process for Mainframe Express should be used.

Note:  The preceding mainframe job will create a load member and place the member in the PDS specified by the SYSLMOD DD statement.

Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section Compile & Link, Many COBOL Programs

The following is an example of the mainframe JCL (UTCOBDAT.jcl) needed to compile and do a composite link of multiple COBOL programs and create an executable member.

The job may be executed on the mainframe as an MVS batch job. The JOB and DD statements will require modification prior to execution on a different mainframe environment. The job will not execute on the PC running Micro Focus Mainframe Express. The standard compile process for Mainframe Express should be used.

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
