Abstract: WebSphere Java Batch is IBM's solution based on the JSR-352 Java Batch open standard. You may want to integrate a Java Batch job as a step inside a traditional JCL batch job that already does a bunch of other things. In that case you may have to be careful about how the processing in the JCL step that is the Java Batch job interacts with the processing in other steps of the JCL. In this paper we'll take a look at some of the intricacies of dataset allocation on z/OS that can become a factor in creating multi-step JCL jobs that include steps that drive Liberty Batch jobs.
