HCL Workload Automation, Version 9.4

Java jobs

A Java job runs a Java class of your choice.

A description of the job properties and valid values are detailed in the context-sensitive help in the Dynamic Workload Console by clicking the question mark (?) icon in the top-right corner of the properties pane.
This section describes the required and optional attributes for Java jobs. Each job definition has the following format and arguments:
Table 1. Required and optional attributes for the definition of a Java job.
Attribute Description/value Required
application name java
jarPath The directory where the jar files are stored. This includes all jar files stored in the specified directory and all sub directories.  
className The name of the class that the job must run.
parameter key The parameters to be used when running the Java class.  
For more information about developing a Java job, see Developer's Guide: Extending HCL Workload Automation.
The following example shows a job that runs a class with name com.ibm.test.Test and parameter failExecution:
