Can I loop a step?

We have a job that frequently crashes in a step because of a database lock (it runs when CICS is active). Is there a way to test the return code and if is is equal to a certain value (I can set that in the program) then retry the step? Ideally, retry it in xx seconds.

This time we are driving the web side and need to execute DFHLS2WS to turn th...

Instruction timings

In the old days IBM published an Assembler Data Card that listed all of the BAL instructions, along with their cycle times. Does anyone know if there is something similar for the ZOS system?

Yes and no. There is other processing, even more time consuming that this. I was going to post that snippet next for help. But I wanted to go at it one function at a time. I don't know what portion of the 11 seconds is in this vs the other function, I imagine this is 1/3 of that time. The second fun...

Bit of help with code

I have a task that I coded to process an XML stream being sent through MQ. One of the segments of the program is to parse the data stream, looking for characters th...
