Level of WLM knowledge required for SP

Raquel Rodriguez

Level of WLM knowledge required for SP
We have SPAS Stored Procedures currently, but we will
soon be converting to WLM Stored Procedures.

We do have WLM implemented at our shop (by systems
programer) but I will be solely responsible for
conversion of Stored Procedures from SPAS to WLM.

How much knowledge about WLM is required for effective
conversion? What is the quickest way to acquire that
level of knowledge? "MVS Workload Management" manual
seems too detailed and rambling for my purpose.

TIA
Raquel.

(in response to Raquel Rodriguez)
WLM Stored procedures require a WLM Application Environment, which can be
set up and maintained (if you would like) by the systems programmer. A WLM
environment is created in two steps. Step 1 is to define the environment to
WLM, which could be done by the systems programmer. Step 2 is to define a
started task JCL stream for the address space that will get created when WLM
dispatches the stored procedure. This JCL will need to have all DD
statements required by the stored procedure. The stored procedure is a
consumer of WLM services, so other than altering the DDL to specify the
appropriate WLM ENVIRONMENT, and converting the Link Edit step to use
DSNRLI, you really don't have to worry about WLM.
