Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

The internationally bestselling guide to JCL programming for today's enterprise programmers and developers

A significant upgrade to IBM's System 390, zOS has simplified the process of setting up and configuring the mainframe while providing improved performance. Along with special features designed for e-business applications, zOS also offers support for 64-bit real storage, improved security, and support for Intelligent Resource Director (IRD). In order to send batch programming work orders to this powerful operating system, programmers can utilize the job control language (JCL). Revised and updated to incorporate these changes, this book will show you step by step all the ways you can use JCL with zOS. This new edition combines an easy-to-follow tutorial for programmers new to JCL and a programming reference for more experienced users. Brown also presents several examples that focus on the concerns of PC programmers as well as sections on programming in multiplatform environments. Other new features to the book include:
* A thorough review of changes in the latest versions of JCL and zOS
* An extensive coverage of JCL in batch programming and production jobs
* Chapters on Linkage Editor, IBM utilities, Sort/Merge utility, VSAM, TSO/E, ISPF, and REXX
* Helpful chapter-end exercises

Format: Paperback
I first encountered this book in edition 1 as a programer. We were on Edition 2 when I was a project Lead and everyone in my staff was issued a copy. On Edition 3 I was teaching a college course on JCL and had the text changed to this excellent reference. I am now a consultant and just finished a two day seminar to familiarize a group of analysts with their computing environment and the necessary JCL to get things done. I showed them edition 5 and recommended they get a copy. I believe that right now an order for about 12 copies of this tool is being approved. Very simply this continues to be the best overall resource on JCL in print. The additional information on TSO and SMS make it the single most powerful technical resource on the market. I have been in data processing for almost 23 years and have yet to encounter anything better.
