what is a cataloged procedure ?



what is a cataloged procedure ?..

Answer / shakila vinayagam

A procedure that you catalog in a library is called a
cataloged procedure.



A cataloged procedure may consist of these JCL statements:
CNTL, command, DD, ENDCNTL, EXEC, IF/THEN/ELSE/ENDIF,
INCLUDE, OUTPUT JCL, and SET. Optionally, a cataloged
procedure can begin with a PROC statement and end with a
PEND statement. If coded, PROC must be the first statement
in the procedure.

The library containing cataloged procedures is a
partitioned data set (PDS) or a partitioned data set
extended (PDSE). The system procedure library is
SYS1.PROCLIB. The installation can have many more procedure
libraries with different names. You can also have
procedures in a private library. The name of a cataloged
procedure is its member name or alias in the library.



When a cataloged procedure is called, the calling step
receives a copy of the procedure; therefore, a cataloged
procedure can be used simultaneously by more than one job.
