Hello,

For more info please look a few lines down in the CICS forum - there were a couple of threads on this last week.

Following was posted by UmeySan in the discussion:
Quote:
What is the differences between operation of Pseudo-Conversational and a conversational program ?

A In a conversational mode, the program accomplishes the conversation by simply sending a message to the terminal, and waiting for the user to respond, and receiving the response from the terminal. The system that sits idle without allowing an other operation while waiting for the data is called a conversational program.

In a Pseudo-Conversational program, a program attempts a conversation with a terminal user, it terminates the task after sending a message with a linkage for the next task. When the user completes the response the next task is automatically initiated. Pseudo-conversational program's uses the CICS resources such as control tables efficiently.

Hope that claryfies all.

Regards, UmeySan

A transaction which seems to hold a "conversation" with the user.

Primarily, during the user think time, generally the biggest time consumer of any transaction, the conversational transaction just waits for the user to respond, tying up resources (fortunately not cpu time) while the pseudo-conversational transaction, after sending the date to the user, makes note (one way or another) of where it is in the flow of the transaction cycle and ends, returning all resources (except its notes). When the user finally responds, it starts up again, reads its notes and (seamlessly) continues the transaction at hand.

A Simple Analogy

Conversational Processing

Going to Workplace everyday by your own Two-wheeler

(The two-wheeler is parked, till you return)


Pseudo-Conversational Processing

Going to Workplace everyday by a Public Bus

(The bus is always on road making more trips for others)


Where vehicle is the CPU.

No, not if the (same) program is smart enough to know where it is in the conversation....
