Terminating a File Trigger in DEseries

    Hi Team,

     

    We have a requirement as follow, but I am unable to implement it in DESERIES.

     

    There is 1 application which has 4 jobs

     

    Application (TEST_PROGRAM)

    Job A (SAP R3)

    |

    Job B (SAP R3)

    |

    Job C (File Trigger) - Name of the file will be same but size of the file will vary everyday and old files will be deleted.

    |

    Job D (This job needs to run only if there is a FILE, if the file is not received or not there for any day, then Job D should  not be running and application should be in SUCCESS.)

     

    Also, whatever the day is (whether we have file there or not), the application - TEST_PROGRAM has to be successful and not in FAILED state.

     

     

    How can we setup this in DESERIES? I don't find any functionality like autosys - where if the file is not there for 5 mins, then it will terminate the file trigger job and in turn whole application can be considered as SUCCESS?

    This is what i would do not sure if anyone else has a better answer.  I would put job D in a seperate application with a File Trigger Event.

     

    Application (TEST_PROGRAM)

    Job A (SAP R3)

    |

    Job B (SAP R3)

    |

    Job C (File Trigger) - Name of the file will be same but size of the file will vary everyday and old files will be deleted.

         Once complete TEST_PROGRAM will complete

              if a file is created TEST_PROGRAM_2 will trigger and Job D will run,

              if no file nothing happens

     

    Application (TEST_PROGRAM_2)

               - with a FILE TRIGGER EVENT.  This way the job only triggers when a file is there and is not loaded everyday

    Job D
