The job sequence supports the following types of activity:
v Job. Specifies a server or parallel job.
v Routine. Specifies a routine. This routine can be any routine in the InfoSphere
DataStage Repository (but not transforms).
v ExecCommand. Specifies an operating system command to execute.
v Email Notification. Specifies that an email notification is sent at this point of the
sequence (uses SMTP).
v Wait-for-file. Waits for a specified file to appear or disappear.
v Exception Handler. There can only be one Exception Handler in a job
sequence.The Exception Handler is executed if a job in the sequence fails to run
(other exceptions are handled by triggers) or if a job aborts and the
Automatically handle activities that fail option is set for the sequence. Use a
Terminator stage to ensure that the sequence is stopped cleanly if certain
situations arise.
v Nested Conditions. Allows you to branch the execution of a sequence depending
on a condition.
v Sequencer. Allows you to synchronize the control flow of multiple activities in a
job sequence.
v Terminator. Allows you to specify that, if certain situations occur, the jobs being
run by a sequence are shut down cleanly.
v Start Loop and End Loop. Use these two stages together to implement a
For...Next or a For...Each loop within your sequence.
v User Variable. Allows you to define variables within a sequence. These variables
can then be used later on in the sequence, for example to set job parameters.

The activity stages are controlled by the setting of their properties (see Activity

To add an activity to your job sequence, drag the corresponding icon from the tool
palette and drop it on the Diagram window.

You can also add particular jobs or routines to the design as activities by dragging
the icon representing that job or routine from the Designer's Repository window
and dropping it in the Diagram window. The job or routine appears as an activity
in the Diagram window.

Activities can be named, moved, and deleted in the same way as stages in an
ordinary server or parallel job.
