Harry Reisenleiter, VP Communications
25 JAN 2011 – MVP Systems Software, Inc., a leader in enterprise batch job scheduling and workload automation software, has released JAMS 5.2 which includes more than a dozen new features and enhancements, all of which have been requested by customers. One of the most important new features in JAMS 5.2 is the new Online Jobs Library which includes dozens of application-specific jobs as well as VMware, Windows Workflow, PowerShell, and UNIX jobs. These sample jobs can be downloaded into an existing JAMS installation and instantly be leveraged by clients.
JAMS 5.2 also includes:
- New PowerShell cmdlets for connecting to IMAP and POP mail servers; Connect-JIMAP and Connect-JPOP. These cmdlets support connecting to email servers using the latest industry security standards including SSL.
- Support for JAMS Parameter validation. This powerful feature ensures the correct parameter is entered and allows for selecting a parameter from a predefined list.
- Support for Job Audit Trails to track changes performed to jobs within the current schedule. This feature records changes made in releasing a job, canceling a job, or adjusting a job’s parameters from the monitor view.
- Support for email trigger definitions. Email triggers allow for submitting a JAMS job based upon the receipt of an email.
- Support for defining parameters at the Execution Method level. This allows jobs of the same type to easily share parameters.
