Use the JOB_INFO table instead. https://www.ibm.com/docs/en/i/7.3?topic=services-job-info-table-function

I think I found the issue.

The pgm B submits the web service calls to a jobq that has only 10 active jobs.
So, a couple of jobs would be sitting in the jobq waiting to be started.

The pgm that checks if the job is active is using the Table(QSYS2.active_job_info()), which does not see it.

I created a new jobq that has more active entries.

How can I change the sql to see the jobs waiting on the jobq?

I think you may be better served to have the web services jobs write their results (records) to a data queue, and have a single program that reads from that *DTAQ and writes to a file ... (that could even be "Program B" in your original post that could also act as the "listener"...)

Data queues perform much better than any database file I/O, either native or SQL-based.

Also, you could then have each web services program send a special message like "**EOF**" (or "*I AM DONE*") to tell the listener job when it has finished ... this should make it much easier for "Program B" to know for certain when they are all finished.

Just my two cents ... :-)

I am adding some additional logging to nail it down.
I am having a sneaking suspicion that the web service pgms are NOT actually done. That would make the most sense.

I second FEOD(N)..

Additionally, I'll say that FRCRATIO(1) is never the right answer now-a-days...

Lastly, if the submitted web programs are truely done, ie. those jobs have ended. Then there shouldn't be any reason not to see the records regardless of FRCRATIO() or the use of FEOD(N).
