Abstract

Described is a means by which Cross System Execution (CSP/AE) applications are as program objects in an OS/400* Release 2.0 In IBM System/370 (S/370) environments, where CSP set currently resides, CSP/AE applications are by calling a CSP/AE interpreter that is passing to the application name as a parameter. This approach invocation and linkage conventions for end users high-level languages to call or transfer control to applications. It also requires an Application Load (ALF) with special tools for management of CSP/AE

Applications As OS/400 Program

       Described is a means by which Cross System Execution
(CSP/AE) applications are as program objects in an OS/400* Release
2.0  In IBM System/370 (S/370) environments, where CSP set currently
resides, CSP/AE applications are by calling a CSP/AE interpreter that
is passing to the application name as a parameter.  This approach
invocation and linkage conventions for end users high-level languages
to call or transfer control to applications.  It also requires an
Application Load (ALF) with special tools for management of CSP/AE

      For the OS/400 R2.0 CSP/AE environment, a "Create" is supplied
with CSP/AE that actually creates a program object (object type *PGM)
for each CSP/AE  It is designed such that other high-level and end
users use standard OS/400 program conventions without regard to
special for either the invocation or object of CSP/AE applications.

      CSP applications are actually defined and generated in a
environment using a S/370 CSP/AE product.  This results in a building
of multiple "modules" of organized in tables that are stored in a
S/370  The ALF is a virtual storage access method (VSAM) data that is
accessed during CSP application execution by the CSP/AE product
interpreter.  A single application simultaneous access of several
"modules" from the for application execution.  When an application is
moved copied from one machine to another, special S/370 are required
to understand the module that allow for packaging all the related
into a single sequential file that are then moved the source machine
to the target machine.

      An AS/400* CSP/AE is architected to mask these internal from
both the administrative tasks of CSP applications on an AS/400 as
well as end users and high- level languages invoking a app...
