As a result, old jobs have to be modified or new ones created.
The problem arises that production JCL cannot be adequately tested.
What are JCL checkers?
The function of a JCL checker is to find errors in the JCL before it is used in the production environment.
For this, individual jobs must be checked when they are created (directly when they are changed in the ISPF-Edito as well as after they have been changed by the ISPF dialogue).
How to optimise your JCL
New or modified JCL is a potential source of errors for your production.
A JCL management tool is indispensable for this.
