TWSeasy – Application Definition and Planning

Simplified submission of TWS ad-hoc jobs

Application Definition and Planning (ADP) Mode greatly extends the accessibility of TWS for z/OS across your organization without increasing the workload on production personnel. Users who have little or no experience with TWS for z/OS, such as system programmers, database administrators and application developers, can define and plan applications in an easy and fast manner through one ISPF screen, without having to work with TWS for z/OS online. Specific fields like Application Id, Entry Op No and Exit Op no can be prepopulated further simplifying the definition process.

ADP Mode can also be used by production control personnel that want to define and plan an ad-hoc application using only one screen.

Automated generation of dynamic TWS ad-hoc Jobs

Applications can be defined and planned both in dialog and in batch. Using TWSeasy ADP in batch allows for the generation of dynamic ad-hoc jobs. For example a database utility could run and generate ad-hoc jobs through ADP Mode that will compress the appropriate databases.
