because it would be stupid

in IT terminology is essential to good communication
a simulator is a completely different thing from a FULL implementation of DB2

db2 express is not a simulator is a full DB2 SQL implementation for the windows platform AMEN
like up to a certain extent, MySQL,PostgreSQL,...

Many years ago we used a desktop product called PROX/MVS. (I may not have the name right, but it was marketed with the Microfocus family of products). It was a JCL simulator that also included a SORT utility that was reasonably compatible with the real thing. As I recall, it supported simple SORT and INCLUDE/OMIT cards, but I don't think that it supported the more advanced DFSORT features, even back then.

I do not know if the product is still available.

There may be a sort utility as part of the Z390 project. I'd check there. Doubtful if it supports the full syntax though as it would be quiet an undertaking to duplicate it.
