I don't think this what you are asking, but one per job?

Hello,

If you define what you mean by
Quote:
a JCL
we can provide more definitive answers. Depending on what "a JCL" is, the answer could be One, Many, or None.

As far as I know, there is no limitation on the number of JOB statements within a single stream (member SUBMITted considered a single stream), however - remember that you have a limitation of 255 steps per job.

Hello,

There is no limitation for the JOB's. After the first job's Null parameter (//) you can imdiately start the next JOB. Similarly you can have N number of jobs in a single member.

But I recommend you to use only one Job per member and strictly follow the coding standards. which will help you when you have JCL problems.
