Abstract

This invention describes a generalized method for combining user- supplied information with system-supplied information to generate a job stream for the execution of a job on a computer. The user supplies a skeletal file which is used as a model of the job stream to be produced. The skeletal file contains "keywords" which are used to represent information which is to be substituted in the skeletal file to produce the job stream. These keywords are resolved from user-supplied and system-supplied information to produce the job stream. The system- supplied information originates in a system control data set (SCDS). The SCDS contains information about resources and events tracked by the system.
