Can you explain the tech details behind this?
Is this related to what Gary stated about CL has 32 limit for auto clearing.

The usual official reply:
Do not CALL the cl program.
Make a *CMD object and use that to execute the program.
This WILL make the issue go away.

when called from AJS
Sent by: midrange-l-bounces@xxxxxxxxxxxx

I have a CLP program that I call from AJS (Advanced Job Scheduler)
Intermittently, the 2nd parameter is getting garbage characters at the
end, shown via dump of CLP pgm.
In the CLP program, parm 1 length defined as 15, parm 2 length defined as
The lengths being passed from AJS are less, 12 and 33.

Program . . . . . . . . . . . . > ICAPICMD Name
Library . . . . . . . . . . . *LIBL Name, *LIBL, *CURLIB
Parameters . . . . . . . . . . . > ''

+ for more values > 'sudo /sbin/service jboss-as start'

From the CLP dump
&CMD *CHAR 41 'sudo /sbin/service
jboss-as start E seque'

The "E seque" is the garbage, causing the CLP to fail.

Is this an AJS parameter issue?

Thank You
