JCL Acronym of Job Control Language , as the acronym signfies controls and monitors the job activities submitted to the OS Kernel.
JCL own the major role in MVS as scheduling, monitoring, controling, alerts , tasking, etc , hence it takes the 60% of the Mainframe usage.
Mainframe environment contain many batch and job scheduling applications that are
controlled by JCL. Hence the most crucial task for us here is to develop an environment such
the jobs continue to run with ease without hindering the workload.
This batch processing environment primarily involves the conversion of JCL statements into
shell commands / scripts to monitor the mainframe capabilities with that of Linux which
analyzes your JCL for any errors and converts it into a structured script such that it can be
executed in Linux.
The JCL is recoded to SHELL SCRIPTING on Linux
