Hi All,
In GDG we used to have PS file as our generations.
Instead of used PS files can have VSAM Files as Generation.
(I got this question in an interview, my answer for that is "no, v can't " but the person who in the interview panel, not agreed with me. I justified my point. but he is strong in his point. i asked directly to him .. but he didn't say the way how we can achieve that one).
If i am wrong please let me know how can v do that.
thanks in advance.
Regards,
Anand

hi Rupesh,
Suppose we are creating a VSAM thru JCL - in this scenario.
we have to execute the program IDCAMS.
If we are going to have the VSAM as we discussing above. which program we have to exectue.
if we are creating the VSAM in previous step, it's not like that of GDG right. The naming canbe like a GDG, but we can't adopt the properties of GDG like that of SCRATH and all.
This is the justification given by me, But he is not ready to accept that one. He just stick on his point.
Please people, consult with your friends and team members regarding this.
With Regards,
Anand
