We have long ago standardized on using Connect:Direct for data set transmissions. Someone (before my tenure) decided the we should handle this is the following (IMO overly complicated) process.
My thought is that it would be more streamlined to have Connect:Direct execute U7SVC to either post the creation of the dataset. That posting could serve as a dataset trigger for jobs or it could satisfy a dataset requirement that exists for a job.
My company is big on adopting "best practices". Thus I am asking if there is a technique that is considered a best practice.
Jeff, the scenario you described is basically the same regardless if you use SASSTRLR or U7SVC. The 2 programs uses the SVC. I don't believe switching from one to the other will buy you much. The event driven process you are currently doing, I would consider a best practice when it comes to Connect Direct.
