An example of such IMS JCL is shown below:

//MYJOB JOB 12345,HF,MSGCLASS=X,CLASS=K

//S1 EXEC PGM=DFSRRC00,REGION=4M, ,

// PARM=(DBB,DSNMTV01,MYPSB)

//DFSRESLB DD DSN=IMS.SDFSRESL,DISP=SHR

//DFSESL DD DSN=IMS.SDFSRESL,DISP=SHR

//STEPLIB DD DSN=IMS.SDFSRESL,DISP=SHR

//IMS DD DSN=IMS.PSBDBD.LOAD,DISP=SHR

//*

//DDITV02 DD *

 DSNP,SYS1,DSNMIN10,,R,-,MYCONN,MYPLAN,MYPGM

//DDOTV02 DD DUMMY,RECFM=V

//DFSVSAMP DD DISP=SHR,DSN= IMS.PARMLIB(DFSVSAMP)

//*

//NCDCHKPT DD DSN=NULLFILE,DISP=SHR

where values on DD statement DDITV02 are as follows:

DSNP  is the name of the DB2 subsystem
