How do I launch a Frog? Let me count the ways......


Presentation

Over the years SOE/WAPL has been associated with the concept of juggling frogs, a reference to the developers analogy that working with the IBM Workload Scheduler for z/OS (IWSz) Programming Interface (PIF) is somewhat akin to juggling frogs, its slippery and bits of it, like frogs' legs, get in the way - it's difficult, but with time and perserverence it can be done.


However, not everyone has the desire to juggle frogs, they just like an easy way to get WAPL to do something.

This session is a basic overview of the various ways you can spawn WAPL, as a job or a started task, as an IWSz operation, from IWSz exits, or even customised in the panels.

With luck there may even be a demo of some simple Wapl tasks. 

No frogs were harmed in the making of this presentation
