I am trying to document a JES2 JCL file process and I am looking for input into the software best suited to document the process and procedures. The process has multiple files / JCL / Proc / output for print. I have been using Visio but I am curiousas to the use of other tools.

Some years ago, we used a very expensive upper CASE tool (Method/1) to design, document and manage the systems lifecycle. However, we soon found that Visio was about as good as it gets. In fact, the vendor for the CASE tool later eliminated the internal tool and linked in Visio.

So my answer is to not spend too much time looking for a better solution, but to move ahead with the toolset you now have.

Visio is OK however I have found a tool (cheaper than visio) Smartdraw (www.smartdraw.com) Simple things make it better e.g. When using it for Data Structure Diagrams the arrows stay linked to the Opbject so it can be moved around and keep all the links.

The only thing Visio can do is have more that one diagram in a file on different pages. But visio is restictive to having ONE page setup for the file.
