We can tell the JOb to refer to Physical dataset by giving the corresponding DD name in the JCL.
//DBDNAME DD DSN=ACTUAL PHYSICAL Dataset
In some work sites there will be default physical dataset name allocation in that case you dont have to give the actual physical dataset name.
To use this default there should be some library like DYNALLIB in the JOBLIB statement of your job
Thanks devzee, but in our case, we were using those DD names for our old JCLs, but when new version of IMS was implemented, after that we didnt require to use those DD names. The IMS would resolve those on its own.
Someone actually told me that RESLIB actually takes care of these. is that true?
