This course teaches:
- how to code JCL (Job Control Language) statements to obtain a correct execution of programs and the correct treatment of data sets;
- the interpretation of job output via SDSF (Spool Display and Search Facility) in order to correct possible errors as soon as possible;
- the use and creation of procedures.
No public sessions are currently scheduled. We will be pleased to set up an on-site course or to schedule an extra public session (in case of a sufficient number of candidates). Interested? Please contact ABIS.
