why should we rewrite the manuals ?
go thru the forum, pick a jcl and using the manual try to do a bit of homework Yourself

here are a few links where somebody has already written what You ask for
http://www.simotime.com/indexjcl.htm

and the mother of jcl knowledge

z/OS V1R6.0-V1R10.0 MVS JCL User's Guide
http://publibz.boulder.ibm.com/cgi-bin/ ... 0712160458

z/OS V1R10.0 MVS JCL Reference
http://publibz.boulder.ibm.com/cgi-bin/ ... 0604022956

even if they are not the latest ones, more than enough to get You started

and here is must for a beginner in the mainframe zOS world
http://www.redbooks.ibm.com/abstracts/sg246366.html

and good manners dictate not to use sms slang and to check the syntax of Your posts
sloppy posting style will not make people eager to help
cheers

Also, please realise that JCL is NOT a PROGRAMMING language but a JOB CONTROL language. IT lets the operating system know what programs you want to execute in what sequence and which datasets each program needs plus environmental information for datasets, memory, time, etc.
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.

As you requested, here's a simple job stream:
//JOBNAME1 JOB
//STEP1    EXEC PGM=IEFBR14
Job card parameters depend upon the site -- there may be accounting parameters, programmer name, job class, message class, and other optional values -- read the manual to find out what they are. Which, if any, are required (and for the accounting parameter the format is totally site-dependent as well) entirely depends upon the site -- so you would have to fill them in depending upon your site. STEP1 is the optional step name, and IEFBR14 is the program being executed.

You've enough answers, deemis, but to be honest, even if I try to read between the lines - I fail to comprehend this question at all, let alone the-attempt-to-answer! What is being asked?

I could almost give him/her the benefit of the doubt as it looked as though the post was made late on Friday afternoon so they may re-appear on Monday. However, the skillset includes JCL so this request should never have been made.

I think people who has more knowledge should help others.

And also send them links of documentation.
But writing one simple JCL program and explain in simple language should not be a problem of experience people in the forum except me.
This will help us who are learning JCL. In my humble opinion If reading manuals is only a solution than we do not need forum.

thanks

WHY... this is not a charity,
but still we reply on our own time, our own equipment, free of charge, and most of the times we test the snippets we post ( at least I do )
and all that is more than what can be reasonably expected
,
so You have no frigging reason to tell us what we should/should not do, and how,
for what reason for example should we waste/spend time rewriting what has already been written
And also send them links of documentation.

go see an ophthalmologist :geek:
if instead of posting such stupid remark You had clicked on the first link posted ( the simo stuff )
You would have noticed that it is almost a full training course on jcl basics ( and more )
but naturally You were too busy criticizing to notice :evil:
In my humble opinion If reading manuals is only a solution than we do not need forum.

Your opinion is not humble, just plain inconsiderate
in my experience after <Anybody> gets a complete answer He/She will never look at the manual
and will keep asking lazily for help expecting Us to do the joib for which He/She is being paid for

this is a help forum, not a training one, or a do my work because I am too lazy to do it
the TS did not ask for help... he asked for training
better read and understand before criticizing
cheers
