Rational Developer Traveler MVP2 (1.0.2) is now available, and can either be accessed in a hosted environment or installed locally. (If you would like to try RD Traveler in either environment, let us know and we'll help you get started)
Now that MVP2 is available, it is time to share the enhancements that we are considering for MVP3, which include:
Job View - A Job view will be provided so that users can view and manage jobs on the host environment. To find a specific job, or jobs, the following filters will be provided for this view; Name, Owner, Queue, ID, and Class. Once a set of jobs have been located, users will be able to sort the jobs in ascending or descending order by clicking on a column header in the job listing table. Users will also be able to Cancel or Purge one or more jobs by selecting the jobs in the job listing table and choosing the appropriate action.
Job Status View - The Job Status view will provide additional job information that is not found in the Job view, including Completion Status and links to the job output. If the job was submitted with RD Traveler, the Job Status view will also contain a link to the JCL that was used to submit the job. The Job Status view will be accessible from the Job view by clicking on a job ID, or from the JCL Submit progress message that is displayed after pressing the Submit button in the JCL Editor.
TSO Shell - A TSO Shell will be provided for invoking TSO commands on the host environment. A user will be able to create more than one shell instance at a time, and each shell instance will have its own command history that can be accessed by pressing the up arrow in the command line.
We are excited to hear what people think of these new features, and we are even more excited to make them available to everyone in our next release. If you have any questions or comments about what we are planning for our next RD Traveler release, feel free to post them here.
