Well, since the author of the blog already stated, that he stopped using JCL *long ago* he
should stop to spread such FUD. JCL 1.1 was released to solve those problems and you might
have been also better off to give details instead of repeating other peoples rumours. JCL
is used wide-spread and you will always include some dep that is based on JCL. Therefore any
howling does not help. If you have problems, we try to solve it, but not by switching to a
different framework that has its own problems if it is used in the wrong way.
