Alternative DD names in user builds
You can use the DD names list field in the translator to specify a list of alternative DD names for the data sets that the translator uses. You can specify alternative DD names for Enterprise COBOL and Enterprise PL/I user builds.
DD names list usageThe method for using the translator DD names list field varies depending on whether you are running the user build for Enterprise PL/I or Enterprise COBOL.
For Enterprise COBOL, DD name substitution works when the compiler is started through
an assembler program, as in IBM® Engineering Workflow Management (EWM). For
the user build, the JCL must be built with the default DD names. However, if there is a DD
allocation for MYPRINT and in the DD names list
MYPRINT is in the
SYSPRINT position, the
MYPRINT data set definition is used. The
generated JCL uses
SYSPRINT instead of
following DD allocation example,
SYSPRINT is defined as well as the alternative DD
name. In this case, only one DD statement is generated in the user build JCL.
SYSPRINT, with the data set definition provided for member name, is used.
