4.11.4 Submit a Process to Batch Directly from Your Own Application

This section has so far described how to submit a process to batch from within LANSA. It is possible to submit a batch process directly from your own application program or from command entry.

The direct submission of a process is achieved by specifying parameters on the LANSA command or when calling the LANSA program.

 Accessing LANSA described how LANSA could be invoked by be executing the command:

LANSA

or by calling LANSA:

CALL LANSA

To submit a process called HISTORY to batch directly from your own application, without going though the normal LANSA menus, the following command could be used:

LANSA SUBMIT HISTORY

or by calling LANSA:

CALL LANSA ('SUBMIT' 'HISTORY')

Either the LANSA command or the CALL command can be compiled into your own application programs and the name of the process to be run can be passed as a variable instead of a literal.

The LANSA or CALL commands can be executed from an interactive application or from a batch application.

Additional parameters on the LANSA command and the LANSA program allow the passing of parameters from your application program into the process as well. This a very useful facility because the parameters are submitted with the process. Refer to the LANSA Command.
