If both STEPLIB and JOBLIB card are present in a JCL job what will happen?
is JOBLIB searched first and then STEPLIB after? or only STEPLIB will be searched?

Thank you.

Hi,

To specify the location of the program that is specified in the EXEC statement, both JOBLIB and STEPLIB statements will be used.

JOBLIB belongs to all the steps in the Job and should be immediately followed by job statement. Where as STEPLIB is available to the particular step only.

STEPLIB has got higher priority over JOBLIB.

Hope this clarifies ur question....

thank you guys.
the book says "The system ignores the job library for a step that has a STEPLIB DD statement."
so im assuming only the STEPLIB is searched. Thank you again.

Hi Gautam,

In both the cases STEPLIB and JOBLIB libraries, STEPLIB will be considered on high priority basis and after that JOBLIB will process.

hey guys this is what actually happens...... joblib will be smply ignored....it will not be searched at all.

13.3.4 Relationship of a JOBLIB to a STEPLIB

Use a STEPLIB DD statement to define a private library for one job step in a job. If you include a STEPLIB DD statement for a job step and a JOBLIB
DD statement for the entire job, the system first searches the step library and then the system library for the requested program. The system
ignores the job library for a step that has a STEPLIB DD statement.

hy,
referr to the z/OS library search order...

JPA (Job Pack Area)
STEPLIB/JOBLIB/TASKLIB
LPA (Link Pack Area)
LLA (Library Look Aside)

but read the manual for detailed information
