Presenter: Larry Bolhuis

Topic: IBM i Advanced Interactive Work Management

As systems drop their hard wired 'Twinax' devices, controlling interactive system use has become more and more a problem. With POWER7 system dropping twinax altogether, the only method to gain 5250 access to the system is via Telnet. And yet have even more power to run many applications on a single system image each with differing requirements for backups and maintenance. How can the users of these systems be controlled in a flexible manner that keeps them informed about the system state yet keeps them out of what is not currently available?

  • In this session we will learn advanced work management techniques that will help you control when and in what subsystems interactive users may work.
  • We'll learn how to keep their batch work out of interactive systems and how to keep them informed via the signon screen.
  • You will be given access to all the code to use on your own system.

Learning Objectives:

  • Build interactive subsystems.
  • Create routing programs which direct users to the proper subsystem, or keep them off.
  • Stop those nasty programmers from running jobs in interactive subsystems.
  • Customize the Sign-On screen for dynamic updates.
