Title: Correcting job control language job errors

Abstract: A method of correcting job control language (JCL) jobs scans a JCL job against a set of JCL syntax rules. The method automatically corrects any syntax errors discovered during the scanning, thereby forming a corrected JCL job. The method then runs the corrected JCL job. If the corrected JCL ends abnormally due to an execution error, the method then automatically determines if the execution error is recoverable. If the execution error is recoverable, the method automatically corrects the recoverable error to form a recovered corrected JCL job. The method reruns the recovered corrected JCL job.
