JCL is used on IBM mainframes running z/OS, not on Windows. You can install Hercules on a Windows machine and then implement MVS on Hercules if you want to use JCL on a Windows machine. However, as far as I am aware there are no software products on a Wndows machine that allow you to directly execute JCL.

You cannot as JCL is specific to mainframe - the nearest Windoze thing would be a .bat file
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.

Hello,

As Robert mentioned, you can "build" a mainframe on your PC. Check the Hercules website.

I will say though, setting up Hercules requires one be experienced on the mainframe, rather than a new student.

You might look here and see if you are interested:

Good luck :)
Hope this helps,
