No, there is not.

You'll need an external event processor, something that it time-aware, to drive this type of process.

If the job is to be submitted later the same day, you can issue time-based automatic commands thru JES2. We have a job that runs after midnight to queue up all the automatic commands for the day.

Code:
$T A,T=12.30,'$VS,''I SMF'' '
will issue the command I SMF at 12:30. You could have a command to submit jobs from your JCL library.

not clear on your command,
can you be specific on where to give the commands.

let's take an example, suppose if i want my jcls to run every friday 5AM then

what are the commands?
where to give the commands?
how will the jes2 recognise that job should run every friday if we place those statements?

The command is entered at the console or thru JCL statements in a submitted job if you're allowed. After midnight Friday morning the command should be entered. All commands are for the same day.

You need a simple started task to copy your JCL to the INTRDR. Check SYS1.PROCLIB(RDR) for a sample.

To submit your job at 4:00 pm, use command

Code:
$T A,T=16.00,'$VS,''S RDRTASK'' '


For more info, check the JES2 books for Automatic Command processing.
