ALTERING GDG DEFINITION 5. DELETING GDG 6. IMPORTANT PRACTICAL QUESTIONS 1. INTRODUCTION Generation Data Groups or GDGs are a group. This facility is called Generation Data Groups (GDG). . There are two types of mainframe processes: Batch Processing Online Transaction Processing. JCL & VSAM: Hi all, I want to know the major difference between the dataset and GDG. reagrds akshatha.

In the world of programming there are many ways to solve a problem.


JCL referenced the GDG as a group the output file should have all six records each of the individual data sets associated with the GDG has two 2 records. The GV00 has been deleted. Advantages to grouping related data sets include: We have a team of individuals that understand the broad range of technologies being used in today’s environments. The function delivered in this version is based mainfframe the enhancement requests from a specific group of users. SimoTime has the technology, services and experience to assist in the application and data management tasks involved with doing business in a multi-system environment.

All of the data sets in the group can be referred to by a common name. The documentation and software were developed and tested on systems that are configured for a SIMOTIME environment based on the hardware, operating systems, user requirements and security requirements.

That is, each data set is historically related to the others in the group. SimoTime Technologies makes no warranty or representations about maindrame suitability of the software, documentation or learning material for any purpose. The SimoTime Home Page.


The data will need to be transferred between the systems and may need to be converted and validated at various stages within the process.

In that case, the dataset in the procedure can be overridden in the JCL.

JCL – Defining Datasets

The preceding job that is described in Step 6 created an output file. Temporary datasets need storage only for the job duration and are deleted at job completion.

We specialize in preparing applications and the associated data that are currently residing on dgg single platform to be distributed across a variety of platforms. Following is the syntax:. SimoTime Technologies shall not be liable for any direct, indirect, special or consequential damages resulting from the gdv of use, data or projects, whether in an action of contract or tort, arising out of or in connection with the use or gdb of this software, documentation or training material.

If a user has a SimoTime Enterprise License the Documents and Program Suites may be available on a local server and accessed using the icon. The two zeroes on the end of the name are used to represent mainfrxme volume number that is used when the file is stored on media maijframe the use of multiple volumes.

Delete Functions, Use with Caution. New system-managed data sets are always cataloged when allocated, with the volume assigned from a storage group. Copyright IBM Corporation What is a VTOC? We appreciate hearing from you. The input used by this suite of programs is maifnrame within the programs. Process a Generation Data Group. A SimoTime License is required for the items to be made available on a local system or server.

JCL, Execute the Jobs. The DSN value can be made up of sub-names each mzinframe 1 to 8 characters length, separated by periods and of total length of 44 characters alphanumeric. Outdated or obsolete generations can be automatically deleted by the operating system. Whether you want to use the Internet to expand into new market segments or as a delivery vehicle for existing business functions simply give us a call or check the web site at http: A mainvrame data group GDG base is allocated in a catalog before the generation data sets are cataloged.


These tables are provided for individuals that need to better understand the bit structures and differences of the encoding formats. Quite often, to reach larger markets or provide a higher level of service to existing customers it requires the newer Internet technologies to work in a complementary manner with existing corporate mainframe systems.

This document and the links to other documents are intended to provide a greater awareness of the Data Management and Application Processing alternatives.

The remaining generation data sets will be retained.

Please note that the dataset is referred as STEP1. The Gnnnn is a generation number from to and the Vnn is a volume number from mxinframe to 99, this is typically GV00 and so on. Before you create the files that attach to a GDG base you may want to create a model dataset that contains the DCB information for the files. Aminframe SCRATCH parameter specifies that the oldest generation data set will be uncatalogued and deleted when the generation limit is exceeded.

SimoTime Technologies was founded in and is a privately owned company.
