XCOMJOB Parameter Classes

The batch interface for CA XCOM Data Transport makes available a large number of transfer control parameters. They are divided into two classes, based on where they can be used in the XCOMJOB JCL. One set of parameters can be specified only in the PARM field of the EXEC statement, and the other can be specified only in the SYSIN01 DD statement. These two sets of parameters are known as PARM parameters and SYSIN01 parameters.

The batch interface for CA XCOM Data Transport makes available a large number of transfer control parameters. They are divided into two classes, based on where they can be used in the XCOMJOB JCL. One set of parameters can be specified only in the PARM field of the EXEC statement, and the other can be specified only in the SYSIN01 DD statement. These two sets of parameters are known as PARM parameters and SYSIN01 parameters.
A few batch interface parameters have a dual status and can be specified both in the PARM field and the SYSIN01 DD statement. However, if a parameter is used as a PARM and a SYSIN01 parameter in the same XCOMJOB JCL, its use in the SYSIN01 statement takes precedence over its use in the PARM field. Likewise, a parameter's specification in the CA XCOM Data Transport control library, CAI.CBXGPARM, overrides its PARM field specification. PARM parameters, on the other hand, override their counterparts in the Default Options Table, which is the lowest level in the hierarchy of the CA XCOM Data Transport parameter categories.
In the following sections, the PARM parameters and the SYSIN01 parameters are described.
