I've got a project, where I'd like to have a bunch of parallel batch
jobs behaving thusly:
All of them are running through the records of a file, in RPG, executing
"process x" (involving a single-record web service that takes time to
process the record it's fed, apparently well beyond the time needed to
transport the data) upon them.
I know we have exclusive locks at the file level, but I can't remember
whether or not we have it at the record level, in a form that can be
used in RPG, with native record-level access.
It would be nice for each of these parallel jobs to be able to simply
grab the next record that isn't already done, and isn't already being
processed by a sister job.
