Question:
On the iSeries, we have a CL that calls a GoAnywhere project. If an error is raised in the GoAnywhere project, how can the CL retrieve that error?

Answer:
The following example allows you to specify your errors with the Raise Error task and retrieve those in the calling CL.

Sample Project:
Code: Select all
<project name="Test" mainModule="Main" version="2.0" logLevel="verbose">
	<module name="Main">
		<createFileList numFilesFoundVariable="FileCount" version="1.0">
			<fileset dir="/temp" />
		</createFileList>
		<if condition="${FileCount==0}">
			<raiseError version="1.0">
				<message>WAS1001 - Unexpected error!</message>
			</raiseError>
		</if>
	</module>
</project>
Sample CL:
Code: Select all
             PGM
             DCL        VAR(&MSG) TYPE(*CHAR) LEN(100)
             DCL        VAR(&MSGID) TYPE(*CHAR) LEN(7)
             DCL        VAR(&GAMSGID) TYPE(*CHAR) LEN(7)
             DCL        VAR(&LOWKEY) TYPE(*CHAR) LEN(4)
             DCL        VAR(&HIKEY) TYPE(*CHAR) LEN(4)
             DCL        VAR(&MSGKEY) TYPE(*CHAR) LEN(4)
             DCL        VAR(&ERROR) TYPE(*CHAR) LEN(5) VALUE('NO')

             /* Send a message so we can capture the low key value for later.   */
             SNDPGMMSG  MSG('Preparing to RUNPROJECT') TOPGMQ(*SAME) +
                          KEYVAR(&LOWKEY)
             RMVMSG MSGKEY(&LOWKEY)

             RUNPROJECT PROJECT('/Test')
             MONMSG     MSGID(GAE1002) EXEC(DO)
                 CHGVAR VAR(&ERROR) VALUE('YES')
             ENDDO

             /* Send a message so we can capture the high key value for later.   */
             SNDPGMMSG  MSG('RUNPROJECT complete') TOPGMQ(*SAME) +
                          KEYVAR(&HIKEY)
             RMVMSG MSGKEY(&HIKEY)

             IF  COND(&ERROR *EQ 'YES') THEN(DO)
                 /*-----------------------------------------------------------------*/
                 /* LOOP TO RECEIVE MESSAGES WITH RCVMSG COMMAND                    */
                 /*-----------------------------------------------------------------*/
                 CHGVAR %BIN(&MSGKEY 1 4)  (%BIN(&LOWKEY 1 4) + 1)
                 LOOP:

                 RCVMSG     PGMQ(*SAME (*)) MSGKEY(&MSGKEY) RMV(*NO) +
                          MSG(&MSG) MSGID(&MSGID)
                 MONMSG CPF2410 EXEC(DO) /* HANDLE MSGKEY NOT FOUND                 */
                   RCVMSG     MSGTYPE(*EXCP) RMV(*YES) /* REMOVE UNWANTED EXCEPTION */
                   GOTO       SKIP
                 ENDDO

                 IF  COND(&MSGID *EQ 'GAE9898') THEN(DO)
                     /* Parse out return from &MSG */
                     CHGVAR VAR(&GAMSGID) VALUE(%SST(&MSG 22 7))
                     /* [9001 - Raise Error] WAS1001 - Unexpected error!   */
                     /* 12345678901234567890123456789012345678901234567890 */
                 ENDDO

                 SKIP:
                 CHGVAR %BIN(&MSGKEY 1 4)  (%BIN(&MSGKEY 1 4) + 1)
                 IF (&MSGKEY *LT &HIKEY) GOTO LOOP

             ENDDO
