Resolution

Based on the "java.lang.RuntimeException: default directory must be absolute" message, one of the directories/paths specified may not available for some reason. It is likely that one of the file systems is not mounted. These are the ones to verify are available, valid, and accessible:

  1. Check the JCL for the following possible DD statements. The specified paths are examples only, as your may be different.
    //SMPJHOME DD PATH='/usr/lpp/java/J8.0_64',PATHDISP=KEEP
    //SMPCPATH DD PATH='/usr/lpp/smp/classes',PATHDISP=KEEP
    //SMPNTS   DD  PATHDISP=KEEP,
    //             PATH='/u/users/userid/RCVORDER'
  2. Check the <CLIENT> input for the following possible tags.
    javahome="/usr/lpp/java/J8.0_64"
    classpath="/usr/lpp/smp/classes"
  3. Check that the OMVS HOME Directory associated with the userid assigned to the job submission is valid and accessible.
