Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section Introduction

This sample program demonstrates how to access JCL specifications from a COBOL program using the SimoTime Job Query program. Information provided with the JOB and DD statements may be obtained by a simple call. For example, the Job Name and Job Number will be provided to the COBOL program.

This suite of programs requires a Windows System with Micro Focus Enterprise Server and the SimoTime Library.


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 Batch Job Objectives

This example illustrates the following functions.

1. From within a COBOL program demonstrate how to access Job Information provided by the JOB Statement in the JCL.
2. From within a COBOL program demonstrate how to access File Information provided by a DD Statement in the JCL.
3. Demonstrate how to write the JOB and DD information to a SYSOUT device.

The preceding is a list of the Batch Job Objectives.

Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section Batch Job Requirements

This suite of samples programs will run on the following platforms.

1. Requires Microsoft Windows/7 (or later) or Windows/Server.
2. Requires Micro Focus Enterprise Server with a configuration for Mainframe Sub-system Support.
3. Requires the SimoTime Library to be installed. The call to STJQUERY is a SimoTime Job Query program that is included in the Library.

The preceding is a list of the Batch Job Requirements for the Operating System, Sub-systems and Utility Programs.

The  light-red  boxes are unique to the SIMOTIME Technologies using a Linux, UNIX or Windows System and COBOL Technologies such as Micro Focus. The  light-yellow  boxes are SIMOTIME Technologies, Third-party Technologies, decision points or program transitions in the processing logic or program generations. The  light-blue  boxes identify the input/output data structures such as Documents, Spreadsheets, Data Files, VSAM Data Sets, Partitioned Data Set Members (PDSM's) or Relational Tables. The  light-gray  boxes identify a system function or an informational item.

Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section Execute the Batch Job

This Job has been created to run on a Windows System with Micro Focus Enterprise Server (ES). This Job (or JCL Member) may be submitted for execution to a Micro Focus Enterprise Server Instance (SI) that has been configured with the Mainframe Sub-System Option and has the JES function enabled.

The job may be submitted from within Micro Focus ES Administration (a Browser-based Interface) or from a Windows Command Line using the CASSUB Utility program provided by Micro Focus. The following shows the format for the Micro Focus CASSUB command.

C:\SIMOSAM1\DEVL\JCL> cassub -jmembername -rserverinstancename

The following shows the format for the CASSUB command that we used in a SimoTime System environment.

C:\SIMOSAM1\DEVL\JCL> cassub -jJOBQRYJ1.JCL -rSIMOBATA

Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section The COBOL Source Members

This sample job uses the following COBOL source members to build the executable load member that accesses the JOB information. The Job information is obtained by calling the SimoTime Job Query program.

Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section The Sample COBOL Program

This program (JOBQRYC1.cbl) uses a standard COBOL call to communicate with the SimoTime JOB Query program that returns the JOB and/or DD information to the calling program.

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 at 1 415 827-7045 or send an e-mail to: helpdesk@simotime.com
