    QUESTION:

    Can AO trap a message written to an OMVS log file?


    ANSWER:

     

      If the message is written to the OMVS log file only (i.e. it is not issued as a WTO as well), then AO cannot trap such a message.  
     
      If the log is file is allocated via a DD statement in the JCL, you can use the SUBSYS=xxxx option to direct that output to a subsystem, you can then use the EXT event type to trap the message written to the file   .

    EXT event type is described in this section
