There are those who will argue that putting the journals and

That's all well and good until you start getting cross library
transactions you want to use commitment control on.
I make a sale. I want it to update customer data in ARLIB. I also
want it to update salesperson data in CRMLIB. And I want to use
commitment control. If the operation fails it should roll back the
previously written data. Hard to do when your data resides in two
different journals and journal receivers.
While there may be other\valid reason(s) to avoid having the journal
reside in the same library as the data, the above example does not
present a valid reason. The implicit or explicit ROLLBACK or a COMMIT
functions just fine in the scenario that is described.
