There are several software packages available that provide ways of saving and restoring spool files. BRMS is just one of these products. Basically, they all utilize the CPYSPLF command to a folder or database file.
As of V5R4 though:
Native Spool File Save/Restore via new SPLFDATA parameter on save/restore commands
- support to save/restore entire output queues (no support for individual spool files)
- BRMS now uses this method to save/restore spool files
