Question:

What is the purpose of BPXBATCH program, used to run the NetMaster Java Task ?

 

 

Answer:

BPXBATCH makes it easy to run shell scripts and executable files that reside in hierarchical file system (HFS) files through the MVS job control language (JCL).

Using BPXBATCH saves the trouble of going into the shell to run scripts and executable files as well as enabling REXX execs to be executed.
