using internal reader we can submit a job using another job

Code:
//STEP050 EXEC PGM=IEBGENER
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*
//SYSUT1 DD DSN=SYSPDA.JCLLIB(JCL2),DISP=SHR
//SYSUT2 DD SYSOUT=(A,INTRDR)
//SYSIN DD DUMMY


let jcl2 be the sub jcl then copy that job file to internal reader using IEBGENER that will make 2nd jcl executing one

Hello,

JCL doesn't "call" JCL - that may have been what they were looking for or possibly the question was re-worded in the post.

JCL can do as the suggestion send other JCL thru the internal reader.

Another way for one JCL to invoke another is with a PROCedure or nested PROCedures where one PROC executes another.

Please let us know if the replies do not answer your question.

JCL cannot call JCL, is this a trick question?
Programs can call programs by a number of means - FTP, MQSeries, Sysplex messaging, Batch Pipes, shared dataset etc etc....
