Chain : In case you wanted to take this run the chain of Jobs then go with this option
Check Class : ABAP class that is used to check the parameter values the user enters.To be able to use all methods that are pre-delivered and up-to-date make sure that the check class inherits from the abstract class CL_APJ_JT_CHECK_BASE.
Value help : In case of value help inherit the interface IF_APJ_RT_VALUE_HELP_EXIT will inherited for the F4 helps.
