Interacting with JCL Jobs

You can run jobs on an enterprise server that include ACCEPT FROM CONSOLE and DISPLAY UPON CONSOLE statements. When execution reaches a DISPLAY UPON CONSOLE statement, the display text is displayed in the console log and the job log, and the job continues. When execution reaches an ACCEPT FROM CONSOLE statement, the job pauses and asks for input using pages in ESMAC.

There is also a facility for replying to ACCEPT FROM CONSOLE statements in basic ESMAC for running Web services, and this is available to JCL jobs. For more information see the sectiion Interacting with Services in the chapter Administering Servers Using ESMAC in your Configuration and Administration Guide.
