What needs to be done to have Revolve 7.0 use CA-7 schedule from the mainframe?


What steps are necessary in Revolve 7.0 to utilize the CA-7 job schedules from the mainframe?


1.Change the job stream component to indicate CA-7 scheduler

From the Utilities > Options

  Select  Component Paremeters tab

  Select TYPE: stream

  and click Parse Options to indicate CA-7 schedule

2. Job schedule input report should be prepared with .ca7 extension so Revolve will automatically understand the content of the report. Prepare mainframe report as indicated below.

3. Add the output from the mainframe to the project as a job stream using CA-7 option

From the Revolve on line docs:

Preparing CA-7 Schedules

The CA-7 job schedule information required for Revolve has to be contained in a single LJOB report file. You need to arrange for the report to be generated on the mainframe system and made available as a single file with the extension .ca7.

The report can be generated in the mainframe environment using the LJOB command, specifying LIST=NODD as a parameter.

For use in Revolve, the report needs to be created with the ANSI carriage control characters in column 1. You can do this by including an A in the RECFM DCB parameter. In JCL for example, you can specify DCB=RECFM=FBA.

Note the name and location of the file produced for when you import it into the project.
