nothing so great being told there
I wonder with what kind of incompetent people the has worked withIn the land of the blind, the one-eyed man is king
all the issues he deals with are just part of the basics of operation management ...
and all at the end comes to analyzing resource contention issues
and good application documentation, planning and periodic review .
the people writing jcl should follow the application recommendations
so is not jcl that is poorly written, the issue lies at least one step above!
JCL in se is not good or bad, it just implements a process according somebody else requirement
if the application support/planning tells that the outlook for data volume is 382 zillions of megabytes
the people writing JCL must setup things with that in mind ...
when planning for the application deployment somebody else should have already taken care of that
