This is an example of a COBOL program and JCL that will create and process a Generation Data Group or GDG on a Mainframe System with ZOS or a Linux. Generation Data Groups (GDGs) are group of datasets related to each other by a common name. The common name is referred as GDG base and each dataset. JCL & VSAM: Hi all, I want to know the major difference between the dataset and GDG. reagrds akshatha.
