Summary:

If you need to run multiple version of CA-XCOM concurrently for background processing, you can create an additional environment for each of the versions.

Instructions:

There are two commands for defining and activating the environments.

  • CRTXCOMBGE - Create CA-XCOM background environment
  • CHGXCOMBGE - Change CA-XCOM background environment

CRTXCOMBGE creates and optionally activates an environment for the background processor consisting of a subsystem, controller and devices. Each library can have its own environment (as long as each environment uses a different subsystem name), but only one of these environments in a library can be active at a time.

The table below describes the CRTXCOMBGE keywords and values:

Keyword

ValueDefaultDescription
LIBAny valid AS/400 name up to 10 charactersNoneThe library in which the environment is created
SUBSYSTEMAny valid AS/400 name up to 10 charactersNoneThe subsystem under which the environment runs
COMMENTRY*YES or *NO*YESSpecifies whether a communications entry for APPC *ALL is added to the subsystem description
AUT*CHANGE
*ALL
*USE
*EXCLUDE
*LIBCRTAUT
*LIBCRTAUTThe authority granted to *PUBLIC for objects created for the environment.
ACTIVATE*YES or *NO*YESSpecifies whether the environment is activated after it is created

CHGXCOMBGE lets you change from the currently active background environment to another previously defined environment.

The table below describes the CHGXCOMBGE keywords and values:
