Starting QMF as a Db2 for z/OS stored procedure

The stored procedure interface to QMF for TSO allows any software program that can call a Db2® for z/OS® stored procedure to start QMF for TSO. The interface can also run a predefined QMF query or procedure and receive up to 21 result sets back, including one for trace data.

Instructions about installing the components of the interface and verifying that it is working correctly are described in the steps to install the stored procedure interface. Similar to QMF batch mode, no panels can be displayed when QMF is running as a stored procedure, so any QMF procedure that runs after QMF starts cannot issue commands such as LIST or DISPLAY.
