The only ways I know to monitor for ENDJOB/ENDSBS/ENDSYS are:

1/ Signal handler - see the signal handler API section of the Unix API
reference manual.  Specifically, the sigaction() function to monitor for
the SIGTERM signal.

2/ Invocation exit programs - see the C runtime and MI library reference
manuals.  atexit() is used to specify a procedure that will be invoked
during normal end.  atiexit() is used specify a program that will be
invoked during abnormal end.

3/ ILE APIs - see the Activation Group and Control Flow APIs in the ILE
CEE API manual.  Specifically, the CEERTX and CEE4RAGE APIs.  The handler
registered with CEERTX is invoked for ENDJOB *IMMED, and is invoked after
the controlled delay time elapses for ENDJOB *CNTRLD.  It also gets
invoked for any exit except a return.

4/ Scope messages - see the message handler API manual.  Specifically, the
QMHSNDSM API (as mentioned in other threads).  If you send the scope
message to *EXT you can monitor for ENDJOB etc.

Since ending a job does not raise an exception in that job you cannot use
the condition handler APIs.
