There is some overlap, ya.
I have a feeling that it can't be done. The UI does something similar, but that doesn't mean that the API is available.
Maybe my question was too big and I should have broken it down into questions like:
- From my own java program, can I build a file with JobScript and turn it into a job? Can I turn it into a Job in the enterprise server (TAC)
- From my own java program, can I then compile that Job that I built from JobScript?
- From my own java program, can I remotely request that Job be run as a Distance Run?
- From my own java program, can I remotely request that the Distnace Run be killed?
The UI does these things, but that doesn't mean I can from my own program. If there was a command line interface, I could wrap that (I don't *want* to, but I could.) I don't know if there is documentation on the CLI.
