Use the JOBCAT DD statement to define a private VSAM or integrated catalog facility user catalog for the duration of a job. The system searches the private catalog for data sets before it searches the master catalog or a private catalog associated with the first qualifier of a data set's name

Use the JOBLIB DD statement to:
Create a private library.

Identify a private library that the system is to search for the program named in each EXEC statement PGM parameter in the job. Only if the system does not find the program in the private library, does it search the system libraries.

Hi All, I know that JCLLIB is used to code the proc libraries(these libraries are used to search the PROCs which is coded in the EXEC statements), and you are saying JOBCAT also for the same purpose. It means JCLLIB and JOBCAT is same?

Thanks!
Rathna.
