We finally got the jars from IBM. I have a simple web app that submits a batch job using JobOperator.startJob(...).
However, some of the APIs in JobOperator (like getJobNames etc.) haven't been implemented yet. IBM is doing another
code drop on 2/12 and thats when these APIs are expected to work properly.
I am working on the asadmin commands (listed in the dependent bugs). These commands will not function properly
until IBM implements some the methods in JobOperator.
The initial (not fully operational) version of these asadmin commands will be available in a week (by 2/8) from now
and it can be used by UI to get started.
