is it possible to submitt more than one job in job card in 
jcl? and if yes than is it necessary to have the jobs same 
 Question Submitted By :: JCL
I also faced this Question!!     Answer Posted By  
# 1
We can submit more than one job from single JCL by giving
multiple job cards in the JCL.

Its not necessary to have the same job name for all the
jobs. If all the jobs have the same job name, then the
jobs will be in queue to finish one by one.

Please let me know, if you are exepecting something

we can submitt more then one job in a sigle job card, and
the job name will be diffrent (this is mandatory)
Is This Answer Correct ?    8 Yes 4 No
# 3
1. There can be only 1 job in a jobcard.
2. There can be multiple jobs in the JCL(Job stream, I mean
the file-PS/PDS in which you have your jcl)
3. Say when you submit the JCL with 2 jobs, jobs will be
submitted, The job having class & priority as higher will
execute first. well let me give you an example.

JOBA(Jobname1) - Class(A), Priority(10)
JOBB(Jobname2) - Class(A), Priority(12)

In this case, JOBB will run first instead of jobA since
priority is higher.

Say you want to run JOBB only after the execution of JOBA
then make the job name same as JOBA

Change Jobname2 as Jobname1 and submit the jcl.

JOBB will run only after JOBA.

Hope your understand

# 4
when we submit job or jobs get different classes..
if job name is same output would be unpredictable coz MVS
can run any of the job..once job is executed MVS is not
going to execute another job with the same name.

so the jobs with the same name will be executed but output
will be unprectable.
Is This Answer Correct ?    3 Yes 5 No
