GitHub herc-tools V1.0 released
The project contains tools for the handling of batch jobs in a Hercules plus MVS 3.8J environment, specifically
- hercjis -
batch job preprocessor and submission tool, supports
variable substitution and file inclusion and allows to build jobs on the
fly from modular building blocks. Can submit directly to a
sockdevreader or write the created JCL to a file.
- hercjos -
- hercjsu - analyses batch job output files and generates compact summaries. Very helpful when a larger number of job outputs have to be checked.
hercjisshould work with all OS running on Hercules.
hercjsuhandle, at this point, only output from
MVS 3.8Jsystems with the
JES2configuration distributed with the Turnkey Systems, tk3 and tk4-.
The large number of different batch jobs created in the
mvs38j-langtest project called for a tools to build them on the
fly form building blocks, and after a few design iterations
hercjis was born.
s370-perf involve a large
number of jobs. Checking them manually quickly gets boring,
hercjsu was developed to quickly analyze the job output,
check for aborted steps, and to create compact summaries.
I hope these tools are also useful for other applications.
