Summary: 

SENDJOBS may be sent to or from any XCOM partner. The job must be in a valid format to be submitted on the partner. Jobs may only be sent. There is no RECEIVE JOB. The contents of TESTJOB must be a job all ready to run on the target system. If it is being sent to another z/OS system, it will be submitted to the internal reader "as is". you will not find a copy of the job on the target system.  If being sent to a LINUX or Unix system, you may need to set up the environment inside the job.   A SENDJOB may be sent from other platforms also.
