CONNECT

The CONNECT command connects to the IBM i host machine. If no HOST keyword is present then the connection is established using the native access method.

 

 CONNECT ----- HOST -------- host:port ------------------------>

 

           >-- USER -------- user profile --------------------->

 

           >-- PASSWORD ---- password -------------------------|

 

Keywords

HOST

Nominate a host to connect to. If no HOST keyword is present then the connection is established to the same machine where the JSM Server is active.

USER

User profile to be used for connection to host.

PASSWORD

Password for supplied user.

Comments / Warnings

To use the CONNECT command without specifying a specific HOST, USER and PASSWORD, the JSM Server must be running on the IBM i where you are attempting to retrieve spool files.

Examples

RDML

 

USE BUILTIN(JSM_COMMAND) WITH_ARGS('CONNECT') TO_GET(#JSMSTS #JSMMSG)

 

or

 

CHANGE FIELD(#JSMCMD) TO(''' CONNECT HOST(ISERIES1) USER(USERXX) PASSWORD(XXXXXX)''')

USE BUILTIN(JSM_COMMAND) WITH_ARGS(#JSMCMD) TO_GET(#JSMSTS #JSMMSG)

 

RDMLX

In this example you explicitly OPEN the JSM Server on the IBM i where you intend to retrieve spool files. By nominating the <host>:<port> on the JSMX_OPEN command you can then CONNECT to the same server without specifying a HOST, USER or PASSWORD.

 

* connect the JSMX client to an IBM i based Java Service Manager and start a thread for the service

use builtin(jsmx_open) with_args('ISERIES1:4570') TO_GET(#jsmxsts #jsmxmsg #jsmxhdle1)

 

* Load the service

#jsmcommand := 'SERVICE_LOAD SERVICE(PDFSPOOLFILESERVICE)'

use builtin(jsmx_command) with_args(#jsmxhdle1 #jsmcommand) TO_GET(#jsmxsts #jsmxmsg)

 

* connect to the IBM i host

use builtin(jsmx_command) with_args(#jsmxhdle1 'Connect') TO_GET(#jsmxsts #jsmxmsg)

 

or

 

If by default the JSMX_OPEN connects to a JSM Server running on a different machine than where you want to retrieve the spool files information, you will need to supply the HOST, USER and PASSWORD for the machine you want to CONNECT to.
