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.

JCL – Defining Datasets

In the world of programming there are many ways to solve a problem. Hence, the dataset is deleted when the job completes execution. For new non-system-managed data sets, if you do not specify a volume and the data set is not opened, the system does not catalog the data set. Since the DSN name mianframe the GDG name without an appended GnnnnVnn segment each of the individual data sets or files will be processed as a contiguous file starting with the last created data set. GDG is created as the output.

Therefore, adjustments tdg be needed to execute the jobs and programs when transferred to a system of a different architecture or configuration.

What is a GDG?

The DSN value can be made up of sub-names each of 1 to 8 characters length, separated by periods and of total length of 44 characters alphanumeric. Delete Functions, Use with Caution. The function delivered in this version is based upon the enhancement requests from a specific group of users. Define a GDG Model. Once the fee is received by SimoTime the latest version of the software, documentation or training material will be delivered and a license will be granted for use within an enterprise, provided the SimoTime copyright notice appear on all copies of the software.


Temporary datasets need storage only for the job duration and are deleted at job completion. We specialize in the creation and deployment maindrame business applications using new or existing technologies and services.

The maximum number of generations that you can associate with a base is Next, run the jobs described in Steps to create additional data sets. Notice the appended segment of GV00 on the data set name. The first group of documents may be available from a local system or via an internet connection, the second group of documents will malnframe an internet connection.


The GV00 has been deleted. The following is a summary of the jobs or JCL members included in this suite of programs and mianframe typical process of execution and review. 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.


The remaining generation data sets will be retained.

The model data only needs to be a VTOC entry and does not require disk space to be used. SimoTime Technologies makes no warranty or representations about the suitability of the software, documentation or learning material for any purpose. Process a Generation Data Group. In a standardised JCL, the program to be executed and its related datasets are placed within a cataloged procedure, which is called in the JCL.

Please note that the dataset is referred as STEP1. Mianframe Agreement and Disclaimer. The SCRATCH parameter specifies that the oldest generation data set will be uncatalogued and deleted when the generation limit is exceeded. Explore the Glossary of Terms for a list of terms and definitions used in this suite of documents and white papers.

This section includes links to documents with additional information that are beyond the scope and purpose of this document. For example, the data set name LAB. Subsequent files are then named by incrementing the generation number resulting in filenames mainnframe in GV00 through GV A generation data group GDG base is allocated in a catalog before the generation data sets are cataloged.

All of the data sets in the group can be referred to by a common name.
