First of all, you are not allowed to post your email address, so you need to remove that from your signature.
Your question is rather confusing. Let me try to break it down, and then you can fill in the missing information.
My jcl contains 3 joblib's...
Just to be clear as to the definition of a JOBLIB:
Use the JOBLIB DD statement to identify a private library that the system is to search for the program named in each EXEC statement PGM parameter in the job. A private library is a partitioned data set or partitioned data set extended on a direct access device. Each member is an executable, user-written program.
and each joblib contains around 24 steps
Do you mean than each JOBLIB contains around 24 programs? They wouldn't contain steps, whatever you mean by that term.
what I want to know is how to directly execute the job3 (3rd joblib ) and 5th and 8th step under job3 without creating a seperate JCL
Do you mean you want to execute STEP3, STEP5, and STEP8 without executing the steps in-between (i.e. STEP4, STEP6 and STEP7)?
The fact is i have 2 joblibs in my jcl e.g. job1 and job2, can i directly execute step 4 and step5 without executing the step1,2,3 and step6 in job2?
Also i want to know how many restart and condition parameters can be coded in one jobcard.
