Dynamic Association Between Asynchronously Submitted Job and System Input Data

Job stream system input (SYSIN) data cannot always be submitted with the job. The mechanism described allows dynamic association between asynchronously submitted jobs and SYSIN data.

The following steps permit the association between asynchronously submitted jobs and SYSIN data: 1) Define two kinds of jobs to be recognized by the reader:

a. Data jobs, and

b. Process jobs;

SYSIN data for process jobs may be entered separately as a data

job;

2) At the time a process job is read by the reader, the input

queues are scanned for data jobs of the same name as the

process job. The SYSIN data associated with all such data

jobs is entered in the spool file by the reader, as

associated with the process job and all record of the data

job is purged. Process job may now use the SYSIN data

exactly as if it had been submitted directly with it.
