Jobs scheduled within a USoft application can be executed in many different ways. Here is a possible scenario.
To execute jobs scheduled within a USoft application:
|1.||Define an overall USoft batch scheduler job that inspects the job scheduler information and mark all jobs that should run, together with their parameters.|
|This job can perform any number of checks to find out if jobs should really run, with what parameters, in what order, etc.|
|2.||The batch scheduler job also contains an export task generating a RUNBATCH.EXE command line for each job to be run and exporting these command lines to an executable JOBS1.bat batch file.|
|3.||Finally, the batch scheduler job contains an action task with the action:|
|This system call will trigger the actual job execution.|
|4.||Call the batch scheduler job at regular intervals, e.g. every 24 hours, using a time-based operating system command triggered by the system date and time.|
