Chapter 1:Introduction

ASG provides this guide to IT professionals who work with JCL members containing ESP symbols. The crucial point is that you want ESP to resolve the symbols prior to validation by PRO/JCL in these situations:

A single JCL member.

All the jobs for an Event.

An entire day's (or night’s) schedule.

The facilities provided through the interface are designed to support this wide variety of requirements and enhance the overall quality and efficiency of the JCL processing at any site using the ESP.

Usage Scenarios

There are four basic usage scenarios in which resolution of ESP symbols followed by PRO/JCL validation is supported:

You are editing JCL that contains ESP symbols and want PRO/JCL to validate the JCL after the symbols have been resolved.

You have made changes to the JCL used by an Event and want to use PRO/JCL to validate JCL for the entire Event.

You are working with Events within the ESP environment and want to validate the JCL used by the Events.

You want PRO/JCL to validate an entire batch schedule as ESP will submit it.

In all four scenarios, PRO/JCL performs thorough syntax checking and catalog simulation and creates a Structured JCL Listing (SJL) to show you exactly how the resolution was performed and whether PRO/JCL found any errors in the resolved JCL. See “Catalog (Run-Time) Simulation” on page 2 for more about PRO/JCL’s catalog simulation and see “Viewing the Structured JCL Listing (SJL)” on page 19 for more about the SJL.

Scenario 1 is supported by PRO/JCL Edit macro (JJESP) passing the necessary parameters to ESP, such as event ID; in turn, ESP uses the appropriate SYMLIB for symbol resolution. The Edit macro then invokes PRO/JCL to perform JCL validation.

ASG-PRO/JCL ESP Scheduler Interface User’s Guide

Scenario 2 is supported by PRO/JCL through a batch run and through the TSO command PJEVENT. PRO/JCL confirms that the changes will not create JCL errors when the Event is next run in production.

Scenario 3 is supported through ESP's ISPF interface. While working with events, you

can use the JCLSCAN 1 exit on the Simulate Event Execution Additional Options panel to validate JCL for an event (see “Validating with the ESP JCLSCAN Exit” on page 12). This method integrates running ESP’s event simulation followed by PRO/JCL’s validation, all without exiting ESP.

Scenario 4 is supported by a batch job, ESPSCHED. Use this job when you want to check

a schedule prior to production. It is an effective way to provide early alerts about

potential problems so necessary fixes can be applied in a timely fashion. A batch job skeleton invokes the ESP extraction and symbol resolution processes.

If your site uses PRO/JCL standards exits, PRO/JCL can invoke them in any of these

scenarios.

Terminology

Event

This refers to an ESP Event. In this guide, Validate an Event refers to the processes by which the JCL associated with or generated by an ESP Event is validated by PRO/JCL.

Event Simulation

ESP uses the term simulation to refer to its multi-stage process of simulating an event:

Triggering an Event.

Generating the corresponding JCL.

Resolving ESP Symbols within the JCL (see “Symbol Resolution” on page 3).

Catalog (Run-Time) Simulation

Thorough validation of production JCL requires that the JCL be analyzed on multiple levels to identify potential problems:

On the most basic level, PRO/JCL ensures that the JCL is syntactically correct.

1. See the ESP Workload Manager Reference Guide for more about this exit.

At the run-time level, PRO/JCL identifies:

1

Introduction

environmental errors, such as security violations and programs not found.

dataset disposition errors.

Whether processing a single JCL member or a sequence of members, PRO/JCL uses its powerful z/OS catalog simulation facility to ensure that the JCL steps will create, use and delete the datasets as expected.

Symbol Resolution

For this guide, there are two main types of symbols used in JCL:

Those native to the z/OS operating system and resolved by JES at run time.

ESP Symbols. ESP substitutes the appropriate value when the event is triggered. These are the symbols ESP resolves prior to JCL validation by PRO/JCL.

Validation

In PRO/JCL usage, Validation is the process of analyzing JCL to identify problems that might occur in production (for example, syntax errors, security violations, catalog problems (see “Catalog (Run-Time) Simulation” on page 2), and so on).

JCL Checking

This term is synonymous with Validation.

PRO/JCL ESP Support Basics

The basic concept of all the scenarios described in this guide is the use of ESP’s symbol library (SYMLIB) for the ESP simulation. Because the only way a SYMLIB can be specified is through an Event definition, it is always necessary to provide an EVENTID whenever PRO/JCL ESP support is invoked (see Figure 1 on page 5).

The JCL to be resolved comes either from the EDIT session or from specified JCL libraries. The ESP simulation is first invoked to perform its resolution based on the appropriate SYMLIB. After resolution is complete, PRO/JCL is invoked to check the JCL. All PRO/JCL ESP interface scenarios operate in this basic sequence:

ESP Scheduler uses the appropriate SYMLIB and resolves the ESP symbols and puts the JCL in execution sequence.

The resolved JCL is placed in a sequential file.

ASG-PRO/JCL ESP Scheduler Interface User’s Guide

PRO/JCL reads the JCL in the sequential file.

PRO/JCL performs its validation process, including catalog simulation when checking an Event or a Schedule.

PRO/JCL invokes a standards program, if requested.

PRO/JCL produces its Structured JCL Listing containing the resolved and expanded JCL with all ESP and PRO/JCL messages.

How SYMLIBs are Specified

The four scenarios in “Usage Scenarios” on page 1 can be divided into two kinds as far as the use of SYMLIBs is concerned: those where the SYMLIB is known (Events and Schedules) and those where it is unknown (single members in EDIT).

Checking Events and Schedules

Invoking the checking process for Events and Schedules is straightforward. When checking a specific Event, the Event definition contains the proper SYMLIB reference; also, when checking a complete Schedule, the necessary EVENTIDs identifying the SYMLIBs are contained within the Schedule. In each of these cases, the particular EVENTIDs are known; consequently, the process uses the appropriate SYMLIBs.

JCL Validation for a Single Member

Invoking the checking process for single members is somewhat more complex and done while in ISPF EDIT. Because you are editing the JCL removed from its normal inclusion within an Event, the only way to tell ESP which Event and SYMLIB to use is through the ESP Event Criteria panel. The JCL in the EDIT session is passed to ESP, along with the specified EVENTID and other criteria entered. ESP uses the criteria to simulate the Event and resolve the symbols. If you want to check the JCL using different SYMLIBs, the same PRO/JCL panel allows you to select different EVENTIDs and use different SYMLIBs.

Chapter 2: Using the JJESP EDIT Macro

When you are editing a JCL member containing ESP symbols, use the JJESP EDIT macro to validate the JCL. JJESP invokes symbol resolution, passing the necessary criteria to ESP so that it can perform its symbol resolution. See Figure 2 on page 8. Then, the resulting JCL is given to PRO/JCL for validation.

There are two essential considerations for ESP:

Specifying the subsystem running ESP.

Specifying an EVENTID so ESP uses the appropriate SYMLIB reference.

Optionally, you can give ESP a ROOTJOB and up to four user-parameters. See “Using the ESP Event Criteria Panel” on page 21 for more about the fields in the ESP Event Criteria panel.

ESP uses the Event-referenced SYMLIB to perform resolution on the JCL from the EDIT session. After that, PRO/JCL performs its validation and displays the resulting Structured JCL Listing in Browse mode. See “Viewing the Structured JCL Listing (SJL)” on page 19 for more information about the SJL. After review, you can return to the original JCL in the EDIT session for further modification and checking.

If the JCL under consideration is used with multiple Events with many different SYMLIBs, you can run PRO/JCL several times, entering a new EVENTID each time into the ESP Event Criteria panel. This checks the JCL with each event and associated SYMLIB.

Notes:

You must have a personal ESP ID identical to your TSO ID. Consult your ESP administrator for assistance.

Only those Events to which your ID has access will be available.

Because the job is being checked on its own and not as part of an Application, Event or Schedule, PRO/JCL might issue error messages such as ‘DATA SET NOT FOUND’ that can be confusing without the knowledge how a job is related to a schedule.

Chapter 3: Validating Events

There are many situations where you might want to check all the JCL in an Event. Perhaps you have modified some of the execution JCL members, added or changed an ESP symbol, changed the execution sequence, added a new job in the sequence, and so on. Whenever this has happened, you will want to get the ESP symbols resolved and then have PRO/JCL check the entire Event for JCL errors.

With the jobs presented to PRO/JCL in execution sequence, inter-job catalog simulation is done in addition to the regular syntax and environment checking. This function can be invoked in a variety of ways:

In ISPF foreground through the TSO PJEVENT command.

Through a batch job.

From within ESP through its JCLSCAN exit.

Because of the way PRO/JCL handles multiple jobs aggregated into a sequential dataset, you should consider the effect of the Input Statement SPLITJOBS parameter. With this parameter, PRO/JCL completely processes each job individually. Without this parameter, PRO/JCL processes all the jobs in the file. For detailed information about the use of SPLITJOBS see the ASG-PRO/JCL User’s Guide.

Validating with the TSO PJEVENT Command

This command can be used any time you are in ISPF. The command invokes the ESP Event Criteria panel as shown in Figure 3. Fill in the data fields as necessary. ESP resolves symbols first followed by the PRO/JCL validation. The resulting Structured JCL

Listing will be displayed in BROWSE mode. It may be printed with the DSPRINT 2 command, if needed.

Note:

The PRO/JCL run-time options values are derived from Run-time Options members.

2.This is the standard TSO print command. If this feature does not work, check with your system administrator for alternatives.

3 Validating Events

Validating an Event in Batch

Another way to have ESP resolve symbols and then use PRO/JCL to validate an Event’s JCL is to set up and run a batch job. The template in Figure 4 on page 12 is the ESPEVENT member of the SAMPLIB library. You enter the information needed for ESP to find, collect and prepare the JCL. The sequential dataset is allocated in STEP01. This dataset name is passed to ESP in STEP02. ESP places the resolved JCL into the sequential file. The file is passed to PRO/JCL in STEP03 for processing and the creation of the Structured JCL Listing. This is an excellent way to verify that changes to the execution JCL will not cause production problems.

The two required input parameters are SIMULATE EVENT and PRINT. If you wish to specify a ROOTJOB or other parameters like USER1, add them using correct ESP syntax. For example,

SIMULATE EVENT(ASG.SIMJOB) - ROOTJOB(MYJOB.A) - USER1(Parameters as needed for ESP) - PRINT('ASG.TEMP.ESPLIST')

To make ESPEVENT ready for execution

1 Modify the jobcard.

2 Change the DSN of the temporary dataset (ASG.TEMP.ESPLIST) to something workable at your site.

3 Place the ESP subsystem name in the ESP SUB SYSTEM ID field (SUBSYS(ESP)).

4 Set up the ESP SIMULATE command parameters

(SIMULATE EVENT(ASG.SIMJOB)) as needed.

5 After submitting the job, check the resulting output for any error messages from ESP or PRO/JCL.

Notes:

The PR1PROC used in STEP03 is the procedure to invoke PRO/JCL from batch jobs. This PROC is included with the regular PRO/JCL installation. It might be desirable to make a copy of it and modify it for your particular use.

You might want to make changes to the options settings PRO/JCL uses for its processes that are different from the usual ones in use. If you need help with this, consult your PRO/JCL administrator or contact ASG using one of the avenues listed in the preface of this guide.

ASG-PRO/JCL ESP Scheduler Interface User’s Guide

Each job in the Structured JCL Listing will have //* comment cards inserted by ESP stating the source library and member name for that particular job. See “Viewing the Structured JCL Listing (SJL)” on page 19.

Any JCL errors found by PRO/JCL resulting from the syntax check, catalog simulation, other checks or improper symbol resolution will be displayed in the Structured JCL Listing.

Validating with the ESP JCLSCAN Exit

There might be times when you are working within ESP to set up or modify an existing Event and you want to check the JCL after symbol resolution. A convenient method is to use PRO/JCL with the JCLSCAN exit provided within ESP. The procedure to do this is shown in Figure 5 on page 14, Figure 6 on page 15 and Figure 7 on page 16.

All the related ESP parameters are taken into consideration by ESP when it does its symbol resolution. A key point is that the prepared JCL from ESP is in execution sequence so the PRO/JCL validation and catalog simulation will accurately reflect the run-time environment.

Notes:

3 Validating Events

The exit name to use is PROJCL (with no slash) not the registered trademark “PRO/JCL”.

The Structured JCL Listing will have a set of //* comment cards for each job indicating the library and member name from which the JCL was derived.

The execution of PRO/JCL takes place in your TSO address space. You will not be able to do anything else in your address space until the process is finished - usually only a few seconds, but this depends on system load and Event size.

When the process is done, PRO/JCL displays the resulting Structured JCL Listing in BROWSE mode.

You can print it using DSPRINT.

Press PF3 to display a list of ESP messages associated with ESP simulation.

If you put an asterisk (*) in the OUTPUT DATASET field on the SIMULATE EVENT EXECUTION panel, ESP makes the resolved JCL available for viewing. To see the resolved JCL, PF3 from the SJL; ESP displays its messages. While viewing the messages press PF7 to page up to the resolved JCL. Press PF3 again to quit and return.

If your site is running more than one PRO/JCL started task, you need to modify a line in the D0JEEPJ exec:

Before:

(note the value is a single blank)

session_id = " "

After:

session_id = "ID=x"

where x is the started task identifying letter.

Chapter 4:Validating a Schedule Forecast

There might be times when you want to perform a PRO/JCL validation on an entire night's production batch run. For this batch-oriented task, you use the existing PRO/JCL SAMPLIB JCL member, ESPSCHED.

There are three steps in the batch job. The first step allocates the temporary dataset into which ESP places the resolved JCL. The second step activates ESP through a supplied PRO/JCL assembler module. The third step invokes PRO/JCL for validation of the resolved JCL in production sequence. The temporary dataset is referenced as ddname JCLFILE in its allocation in STEP01, referenced as JCLOUT in the SYSIN parameters for ESP in STEP02 and as ddname JLJOB for use by PRO/JCL in STEP03 (see Figure 8 on page 18). Be sure the same dataset name is used in all three places. If you want to look at the resolved JCL for troubleshooting purposes, change the DISP in ddname JLJOB to KEEP.

In brief, when the run is complete, you first check the ESPSCHED job output for return codes and ESP messages to make sure everything ran as planned. Then, look for any errors that PRO/JCL has found that will cause problems during the batch cycle. Accordingly, review the error messages in the Structured JCL Listing and determine what needs to be done to make the corrections prior to the start of the shift.

Because of the way PRO/JCL handles multiple jobs aggregated into a sequential dataset, you should consider the effect of the Input Statement SPLITJOBS parameter. With this parameter, PRO/JCL completely processes each job individually. Without this parameter, PRO/JCL processes all the jobs in the file en masse. For detailed information about the use of SPLITJOBS see the ASG-PRO/JCL User’s Guide.

To validate a schedule forecast, copy the ESPSCHED member from the PRO/JCL SAMPLIB library and modify it (Figure 8 on page 18)

1 Modify the job card.

2 Insert the valid ESP subsystem name on the EXEC CYBJS000 step and specify the Schedule Activity Report parameter ‘SAR’.

3 On the SADGEN control statement, specify the starting and ending dates and times and the dataset for the SAR output.

4 Substitute a valid dataset name for the job to use in the JCLFILE and JLJOB DD statements and in the SADGEN input cards (as shipped, the dataset name is

TEMP.SCHEDULE.JCLOUT).

Chapter 5: Viewing the Structured JCL Listing (SJL)

After ESP simulation and PRO/JCL validation, PRO/JCL produces the Structured JCL Listing. Figure 9 on page 20 shows the before picture of the JCL. The member is shown for reference against the Structured JCL Listing in Figure 10 on page 20. Important items to observe are:

The resolved source JCL statements. (See 1 in Figure 10 on page 20.)

The comment lines inserted by ESP. (See 2 in Figure 10 on page 20.)

The dataset associated with the EVENTID. This line is also inserted by ESP. (See 3 in Figure 10 on page 20.)

Comment lines inserted by PRO/JCL. In the case of processing done through the JJESP EDIT macro, PRO/JCL gives ESP the JCL from the EDIT work area to resolve the JCL. These lines remind the reader that the validated JCL was from the EDIT work-area and not from the member referenced in the line marked by 3. (See 4 in Figure 10 on page 20.)

Error messages and other analysis data inserted by PRO/JCL. (See 5 in Figure 10 on page 20.)

For complete details about the remainder of the Structured JCL Listing, refer to the ASG-PRO/JCL User’s Guide. It describes details about the format and notational conventions used in the report.

Chapter 6: Using the ESP Event Criteria Panel

First PRO/JCL and then ESP perform validity checks on the values entered. If either program finds an error, PRO/JCL returns to the ESP Event Criteria panel displaying the error message. Correct the error, and press ENTER again.

Anytime PRO/JCL displays this panel it inserts the most recently used values for the fields.

Basic Definitions

EVENTID

The EVENTID is divided into the PREFIX and the DESCRIPTIVE NAME fields, as you are accustomed to seeing in the ESP panels. You may type in the values directly, using wild-cards in DESCRIPTIVE NAME, just as you would in the ESP panels.

If you leave the PREFIX part blank, it defaults to the current GROUPID (which is the same as your TSO userID).

If you use a PREFIX you are not authorized to access, PRO/JCL displays an ESP error message. Correct the entry and retry.

If you leave the DESCRIPTIVE NAME blank, PRO/JCL gets a list of descriptive names from ESP for the PREFIX and displays them. Type S next to the one you want to choose and press ENTER.

USER PARAMETERS and CASE SENSITIVE

If values in the USER PARAMETERS fields are case sensitive, type a Y in the CASE SENSITIVE field.

ESP SUB SYSTEM ID

This field contains the subsystem identifier for the LPAR that ESP runs in. If your site has a single ESP Subsystem, then you can set this field once and forget it.

ASG-PRO/JCL ESP Scheduler Interface User’s Guide

If you're not sure of the ESP Subsystem ID, put blanks in the field and press ENTER. PRO/JCL will display a list of subsystems. Type 'S' next to the ESP Subsystem, and press ENTER. If you have an ESP subsystem for testing, you can use this field to switch simulation between the testing and production subsystems.

Display Simulation Messages

ESP generates messages during its simulation; put a Y in the DISPLAY SIMULATION MESSAGES field to see these messages see Figure 12 on page 23. Put an N to bypass their display.

RTS Member

Type the name of the RTS member you want to use; if one is assigned by the PRO/JCL administrator, that one will be used.

JMP Library and JMP Name

Type the full dataset name and the member name of any JMP program you want to use. PRO/JCL ignores input in the JMP Library and will run its validation process without calling a JMP unless there is a member name in the JMP name field.

ESP Event Criteria Panel Messages

This subsection presents the common error messages you might encounter when using the ESP Event Criteria panel.

PRO/JCL Messages

Depending on user input, PRO/JCL displays messages in the ESP Event Criteria panel alerting users to non-valid input values. PRO/JCL first looks at the ESP SUB SYSTEM ID field and compares the value there with the IDs in the LPAR list. If the name is found then PRO/JCL looks at the EVENTID fields; otherwise, PRO/JCL displays a list of subsystem IDs in the Select ESP Subsystem panel.

If PRO/JCL finds the DESCRIPTIVE NAME field blank, it queries ESP for a list of Events authorized for the PREFIX and displays the list. Otherwise, it passes all the fields to ESP.

Subsystem subsysname not found

For the ESP SUB SYSTEM ID field, if you put in a subsystem name that is not in the LPAR, PRO/JCL displays the list of subsystems in the Select ESP Subsystem panel and the message. Choose a subsystem from the list and press Enter.

A Subsystem Name Was Not Selected

For the ESP SUB SYSTEM ID field, if you do not select a subsystem name from the Select ESP Subsystem panel, PRO/JCL redisplays the ESP Event Criteria panel and this message.

RTS Member not found

For the RTS Member field. The member specified in the RTS Member field does not exist.

Data set not found

For the JMP Library field. PRO/JCL cannot find the dataset with the name given in the JMP Library field.

6 Using the ESP Event Criteria Panel

Member Not Found

For the JMP Name field. PRO/JCL cannot find the member named in the JMP Name field. This implies that the library in the JMP Library is valid.

Enter Y or N

For the CASE SENSITIVE and the DISPLAY SIMULATION MESSAGES fields. Enter

Y for YES or N for NO in the CASE SENSITIVE and the DISPLAY SIMULATION

MESSAGES fields.

An Event Name Was Not Selected

For the DESCRIPTIVE NAME field. If you blank out the DESCRIPTIVE NAME field, PRO/JCL displays the Select an Event panel. If you do not select an Event name from this panel, PRO/JCL displays the ESP Event Criteria panel and this message.

ESP Messages

If ESP detects errors, PRO/JCL displays them in the message field of the ESP Event

Criteria panel. See Figure 13 on page 26.

Subsystem subsystemname Not Found

If the name you type or insert into the ESP SUB SYSTEM ID field does not contain a

working ESP system, PRO/JCL displays the ESP Event Criteria panel and this ESP

message where subsystemname is the erroneous name.

Group Name Error

If you do not have access to the group name you typed in the group name field, PRO/JCL

displays the ESP Event Criteria panel and an ESP message.

Descriptive Name Not Valid

If you enter a non-valid DESCRIPTIVE NAME, PRO/JCL displays the ESP Event

Criteria panel and an ESP message.

ASG-PRO/JCL ESP Scheduler Interface User’s Guide

Schedule Time Not Valid

If you enter a non-valid schedule time, PRO/JCL displays the ESP Event Criteria panel and an ESP message ESP607E SYNTAX ERROR STARTING AT.
