I have an app and it shells and IBM communication app which sends me to a user sign on. I need to sign on because the files I need to access are within the mainframe side of things.
Once at the sign on I am outside my app so if I sign on I get to the dos prompt which is where I want to be, but my app is in limbo.
Once I reach the dos prompt I need to move files-change dir-etc. I can do this with a bat file. But as I'v stated, my app is (I don't know where it is), I've left it behind at the sign on.
How do I
1. use my app to sign on and proceed with shelling the bat file.
2. have my app kick in after I sign on
What I am missing is the ability to signon as user and then proceed.
Just the middle..I can do the steps before and after...I need the communication.
Hope this makes sense.
