HI icon_lol.gif ,

GENERALLY WE PEOPLE WILL HAVE ONE JOB CARD IN A JCL.I THINK WE CAN HAVE ANY NUMBER OF JOB CARDS IN A JCL.IS THERE ANY LIMIT OF HAVING NUMBER OF JOB CARDS AS WE GOT MAX STEPS SHOULD BE LIKE 255 IN EACH JOB.BUT MY DOUBT IS WHATS THE PURPOSE OF IT AND IN WHICH CONTEXT WE WILL USE THIS.

IF WE CODE 4 OR 5 JOB CARDS IN A SINGLE JCL CAN I HAVE SAME STEP NAMES IN ALL JOBS.LIKE IF I HAVE 2 STEPS STEP1 AND STEP2 IN A JOB,CAN I USE SAME STEPS IN ALL JOBS.IF SO HOW CAN I UNDERSTAND WHICH STEP BELONG TO WHICH JOB.IS THERE ANY DIFFERENTIATION FOR THIS.

PLEASE SOMEONE CLARIFY MY DOUBTS.

THANKS AND REGARDS
ANURADHA

Hi ANURADHA,

Let me start by saying that a lot of these ques can be answered by running tests or reading the manual to get the answers you seek. An added advantage to that approach is that you'll learn more and remember better.

Job JCLs are completely independent of each other; they can contain identical JCL cards.

The Job listings are separate. If you submit 2 or more jobs with the same Jobname it's up to you to decide which is which on the O/P Q. Put a different //* comment card in each, or note the time each job started, etc.

3rd party job schedulers can link multiple job jobstreams to run in a pre-ordained order.

Regards, Jack.

Anuradha,

May I ask you why do you always ask questions in CAPS? Caps means you are demanding and Shouting. Please don't shout at us.
