I have a batch URT for a COBOL program running in z/OS. What URT option should I use?

The manual states that the DBURINF COBOL=YES option is only for z/VSE.

Should I use LE=YES?



Programs running under z/OS.



The COBOL=YES option is only for zVSE.

For z/OS the DBURINF LE=YES option is available for COBOL programs that will run under the z/OS Language Environment runtime. 

If the z/OS Language Environment runtime option RTEREUS=ON is used to create a reusable runtime environment and OPEN=DB is used in the DBURINF  macro then you should also specify the DBURINF option LE=YES.

You also will need to concatenate the CA Common Services CAW0MAC macro library and the LE macro library CEE.SCEMAC to the SYSLIB DD statement in the assembly step JCL, otherwise you will get ASMA057E Undefined operation code messages.
