Issue/Introduction

Have written a CA Endevor Application Program Interface (API) program in REXX and getting the following allocation errors when the Generate processor is executed:

C1A0010E ALLOCATION ERROR RC=0410-0000, DDNAME=SYSEXEC 
C1A0011E IKJ56246I DATA SET NDVRSBX.TECHUNIT.ADMIN.REXX NOT ALLOCATED, FILE IN USE 
C1A0010E ALLOCATION ERROR RC=0410-0000, DDNAME=SYSTSPRT 
C1A0011E IKJ56246I SYSOUT DATA SET NOT ALLOCATED, FILE IN USE 
C1A0010E ALLOCATION ERROR RC=0410-0000, DDNAME=SYSTSIN 
C1A0011E IKJ56246I FILE SYSTSIN NOT ALLOCATED, FILE IN USE 

Cause

The Generate processor contains a step that executes a REXX routine. The data sets required by REXX have already been opened and allocated to the API calling REXX routine and cannot subsequently be allocated by the REXX step in the processor. 

Environment

Release:
Component: ENDBAS

Resolution

REXX cannot be used as the API programming language if any of the processors execute REXX routines.  

The API program needs to be rewritten in Assembler or an LE-compliant language to eliminate the allocation errors.
