currently, I am working on two big tasks and would be very happy about it, when you could help.
We have a Scheduler on the Mainframe (z/OS: Control-M, ESP) and the Spring batch jobs are running on a AIX machine within a ApplicationServer (WAS) and Spring Batch Admin.
I think there are different ways, for example calling a webservice with curl, message-queues, and so on. Are there any Best Practices how to trigger the jobs on the AIX-machine from the host? But my main question ist: How do you control the status of the job with the scheduler? Polling against the Batch-Database?
How do you transport the logfiles to the Mainframe? Normally in Spring Batch the log4j-Framework is used. But it only logs to the AIX-Filesystem. Are there any possibilities to transport the log-output directly to the Host (Beta93/Beta92)? Maybe with log4j-Appenders over MQ?
