What is a generation data group? That is, each data set is historically related to the others in the group. If the attributes and organizations of all generations in a group are identical, the generations can be retrieved together as a single data set. Advantages to grouping related data sets include: All of the data sets in the group can be referred to by a common name.

The operating system is able to keep the generations in chronological order. Outdated or obsolete generations can be automatically deleted by the operating system. Generation data sets have sequentially ordered absolute and relative names that represent their age. The operating system's catalog management routines use the absolute generation name. Older data sets have smaller absolute numbers. The relative name is a signed integer used to refer to the latest 0 , the next to the latest -1 , and so forth, generation.

For example, the data set name LAB. A generation data group GDG base is allocated in a catalog before the generation data sets are cataloged. 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. New system-managed data sets are always cataloged when allocated, with the volume assigned from a storage group.

JCL - Defining Datasets

The individual files within a group have a generation number added to the end of the name to make each file name unique. Subsequent files are named by incrementing the generation number resulting in filenames ending in GV00 through GV Once the GV00 is reached the numbering will start again from GV G — Stands for Generation number — Value range — V — Stands for Version number — Value range 00 — 99 The two zeroes on the end of the name are used to represent a volume number. You can set the limit of the related files generations We can easily keep track of all generation of data sets We can delete or un-catalog the older generation Any particular generation can be referred easily.

The DSN parameter refers to the physical dataset name of a newly created or existing dataset. 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. This is called Backward Referencing. Concatenating Datasets If there is more than one dataset of the same format, they can be concatenated and passed as an input to the program in a single DD name. Overriding Datasets 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.
