>> I have a situation where I have a batch job that needs to know if
another batch job is running, so that if it is, the first batch job will
abort only a portion of the run. <<

What works well for batch jobs is to allocate the program object for
exclusive use from within the job itself. Other jobs can then try to
allocate it and act accordingly if the request fails. As soon as the job
ends, the lock goes away.
