Assume a program is there along with psb being generated for it. If I write a new program accessing same database and same segment in those databases, can I use the same PSB in the JCL to run my program.

Hello,

If you keep them separate, it will help with configuration management and impact analysis. . . .

FWIW.

My 2 cents....as previously stated....you should always have a separate PSB for each program. If someone just happens to change a "global" PSB and you fail to change your program, you are in big trouble. This is a standard at most installations.

Hi,

According to our shop, the protocol is that if you are creating a new job stream and new programs it is recommended to create new PSBs also. This is the standard we follow.

It might vary from company to company and from client to client.

Thanks.
