Use the WRITER parameter to name an external writer to process the sysout data set rather than JES. An external writer is an IBM- or installation-written program.


as documented in the "z/OS V1R7.0 MVS JCL Reference":

I'm not a Systems Programmer, so I can't provide much detail about External Writers. However, this link, and the Appendix it refers to, may be of value:
