BASIC EXECUTION - IBM Mainframe

When you have completed the preparatory work for your VS COBOL II program (designing, coding, translating, defining table entries, compiling, and link-editing), the program is ready for execution. You can use cataloged procedures to combine the compile, link-edit, and execute procedures in your programs. VS COBOL II programs can be executed under the following systems or subsystems:

BASIC EXECUTION

Executing Your Compiled Program under MVS

The general job control procedure for an execution job step in MVS is as follows:

Executing Your Compiled Program under MVS

Executing Your Compiled Program under TSO

The TSO CALL command executes programs in load module form. Specify the name of the data set that contains your program in load module form:

Executing Your Compiled Program under TSO

If you omit the descriptive qualifier and the member name, the system assumes LOAD and TEMPNAME respectively. If your load module is in the data set user-id.LIB.LOAD (TEMPNAME,enter:CALL LIB).

Executing Your Compiled Program under CICS

Three VS COBOL II facilities help you to prepare your program for execution under CICS:

  • The global default options module (macro 1GZOPD) for setting default run-time options
  • The application-specific options module (macro IGZOPT) for passing run-time options
  • The tuning table (macro IGZTUNE) for defining application-specific space management tuning factors

Executing Your Compiled Program under IMS

Three VS COBOL 11 facilities help you to prepare your program for execution under IMS:

  • The global default options module (macro IGZOPD) for setting default run-time options
  • The application-specific options module (macro IGZOPT) for passing run-time options
  • The tuning table (macro IGZTUNE) for defining application-specific space management tuning factors
