RE: CLP pgm with 2 paramters intermittently getting garbage when called from AJS



fixed

I had to laugh at this discussion. Just this morning I got bit by the 32 character bug when testing something from a command line. Once I dumped the CL, the problem/resolution pretty much jumped off the screen. Passed 33 chars to a 35 long parm and ended up with two nulls that some vendor software did not like.

It's been years since I ran across this but funny that, after resolving my issue, I logon and see this whole thread.

Paul:

Count the characters between the single-quotes.

You did not provide enough characters for the size of the parameters you
stated was defined in your CL program. =-O

It should look like:

CALL PGM(XCAPXCMD) PARM('10.5.173.150 ' 'sudo /sbin/service
jboss-as start ')

Or, as Rob suggested, create a command, so then you can just specify
something like this:

XCAPXCMD SYSTEM('10.5.173.150') CMD('sudo /sbin/service jboss-as
start')

and the command processing will take care of ensuring the correct
number of characters are actually passed to your program.

HTH,

Mark,

From any job in AJS
If I make the lengths match and/or make it a CMD, should resolve the issue.

Paul:

Show us the line of code that invokes this ... e.g. as defined to the "advanced job scheduler") ... then perhaps we can help?

All the best,

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 41.
The lengths being passed from AJS are less, 12 and 33.

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
