Job limitationfrom a jcl is only limited to the number of max JCL steps as you'd have to submit jobs thru steps.

and limitation of steps is 255.

Hi,
I think the correct answer is 15 jobs .
One job contains 255 steps as limitation.Therefore each of the 15 jobs can have a limitation of 255 steps.

Do you have any proof or documentation to offer to back up your claim of only 15 jobs?

My guess is that the limit is dictated by the size of the Queues and/or Spool space used in submitting the jobs for execution, not the number of jobs.
