Hi vayunandanrao,

Joblib/Steplib is used to give a reference to a dataset which will be used for serching the data while executing the job. The dataset used in the joblib is used for the whole job while the steplib is used for only one step.
and the steplib dataset overrides that of joblib.
is that enough?

Hi,

The dataset you give in Joblib or Steplib is a special type of PDS which contains load modules of the programs(as members) you want to execute thru the jcl you submit.

Joblib dataset is whole for a job and steplib dataset is just for that particular step.

If you specify just joblib and no steplib for the step, the load module of the program executing in that step will be searched sequentially in the dataset you specify in joblib.

So joblib/steplib dataset are totally different from other datasets which are used by the programs as Input/Output files.
