Job have 3 steps in 1) Step01 creating New GDG file(+), 2) Step02 Delete file(+), 3) Step03 create new GDG file with same file name JCL has been executed twice What is the version for that file?

  1. gdg(0)

  2. gdg(+3)

  3. gdg(+4)

  4. gdg(+2)

Correct Option: C

AI Explanation

To determine the version of the file after executing the given JCL steps, let's analyze each step:

1) Step01: Creating a new GDG file with the same file name.

  • This step will create a new version of the GDG file with a higher version number.

2) Step02: Deleting the file.

  • This step will remove the current version of the GDG file.

3) Step03: Creating a new GDG file with the same file name.

  • This step will create a new version of the GDG file with a higher version number.

Since the JCL has been executed twice, the final version of the GDG file will be increased by 2 (one for each execution of the JCL).

Given that the initial GDG file version is 0, the final version of the file will be gdg(+4) (0 + 2 + 2 = 4).

Therefore, the correct answer is C) gdg(+4).

TSO command what is an SDSF?

  1. special display screen facility

  2. Spool display & search facility

  3. special display & search facility

  4. Spool dispaly screen facility

Correct Option: B

AI Explanation

To answer this question, we need to understand what SDSF stands for and its purpose.

SDSF stands for Spool Display and Search Facility. It is a command in TSO (Time Sharing Option) that allows users to display and manage the output spool files on a mainframe system.

Option A) "Special Display Screen Facility" is incorrect because SDSF does not refer to a special display screen facility. It specifically deals with spool files.

Option B) "Spool Display & Search Facility" is correct. This option accurately describes what SDSF stands for.

Option C) "Special Display & Search Facility" is incorrect because SDSF does not refer to a special display facility. It is specifically designed for displaying and searching spool files.

Option D) "Spool Display Screen Facility" is incorrect. While it is similar to Option B, it does not include the search functionality that SDSF provides.

Therefore, the correct answer is B) Spool Display & Search Facility.
