JES3 to JES2 Migration Considerations

A draft IBM Redbooks publication


This IBM Redbooks publication provides information to help clients that have JES3 and are considering a migration to JES2. It provides a comprehensive list of the differences between the two job entry subsystems and discusses the actions and products that need to be considered.
There are numerous reasons why an enterprise might consider changing their job entry subsystem. Whether such a move is appropriate depends on the functions you are exploiting, and the effort and expense that would be involved in moving to JES2. This book provides all the information you need to make an informed decision about the right direction for enterprise.
The book is aimed at operations personnel, system programmers, and application developers.
