z/OS Mainframe ftplib subclass

Project Description

A FTP subclass which adds some Mainframe z/OS features like job submission, execution of sql/DB2 queries, …

Usage

import zosftplib
Myzftp = zosftplib.Zftp(mvshost, mvsuser, passwd,
                        timeout=500.0, sbdataconn='(ibm-1147,iso8859-1)')

Features

submitting sql/DB2 queries and retrieving their outputs

with open('/tmp/systables.csv', 'w') as outfile:
    for line in Myzftp.exec_sql("SELECT * FROM SYSIBM.SYSTABLES WITH UR"):
        outfile.write(';'.join(line.split()) + '\n')

submitting batch jobs, pending their outputs

# easy job for zos:
job = Myzftp.submit_wait_job('//IBMUSERX JOB MSGLEVEL(1,1)\n'
                             '//STEP001 EXEC PGM=IEFBR14',
                              purge=True)
print "rc:", job["rc"], "Jes status:", job["status"]
for line in job["output"]:
    print line

This produces the following output:

rc: RC=0000 Jes status: OUTPUT (job purged)

z/OS Catalog and JES spool informations

for x in Myzftp.list_catalog('SYS1.*'):
    print x["Dsname"], x["Dsorg"], x["Used"], "tracks"

# print all "ACTIVE" jobs:
for job in Myzftp.list_jes_spool('', '', 'ACTIVE'):
    print job

This produces the following output:
