Table of Contents Previous Section Next Section Introduction

This program is a stub or starter program when creating a new COBOL program or callable sub-routine. It can accept a parameter from the PARM= keyword of the EXEC statement in JCL. It will call the SIMODUMP program to do a HEX-Dump of a of a user-defined data string.

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

Explore the SIMOTIME Web Site for additional information about the technologies and services that are available.


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. Demonstrate how to create a new COBOL program or callable subroutine using a template program.
2. Demonstrate how to use external switches or environment variables to control program behavior.
3. Demonstrate how to access the data string defined using the PARM= function on the EXEC statement of the JCL member.
4. Demonstrate how to write to a SYSOUT device.

The preceding is a list of the Batch Job Objectives.

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.

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
