It is possible to create jCL programs, which will be run automatically, each time a user logs in or logs in to a specific account. Simply create a jCL program with the same name as the account or user, and put "jshell -" on the last line of the login script (usually ".profile").
This feature can be used for example, to configure the jSHELL environment, implement a security system, or display an initial menu.
For example, let's assume that all users who login to an account called SALES must be offered an initial menu, which is a jBC program, called MENU held in a file called PROGS. You would create a jCL program in the MD of the SALES account and call it SALES like this:
PQN HRUN PROGS MENU P
Each time a user logs in to the SALES account, the system will search for a program called SALES in the MD of the account. The jCL program will then run the MENU program from the PROGS file.
Back to jCL.
