Abstract

When customers want to build Job Control Language (JCL) jobstreams for batch tools to support all the database objects in their shop they do not have a comprehensive tool to assist them. Similarly, if they are converting from an OEM to IBM tool jobstreams, then they face a similar dilemma. Jobstreams have to be built manually, so this would be very time consuming and susceptible to human error. Database registration with the DBMS is also a time consuming process, even if semi-automated processes exist, substantial data entry would be required.
