hi,
is it possible to switch between conversational and non-conversational programs?
Is it possible to use the CHNG, ISRT, PURG calls for this switching?

Thanks,

To end the conversation, Program A can do either of the following:

Move a blank to the first byte of the transaction code area of the SPA and then return the SPA to IMS.

Respond to the terminal and pass control to a nonconversational program. This is also called a deferred program switch, but Program A ends the conversation before passing control to another application program. The second application program can be an MPP or a transaction-oriented BMP that processes transactions from the conversational program.


Depends on what you want to achieve with the switch. Please explain what your goal is.

In our shop we run an online application as follows:

    1. Find or insert customer at the terminal
    2. After processing the customer one makes a choice.
    3. Processing is switched to a program which decides which transaction is to be started.
    4. The destinated transaction takes over and one proceeds entering data.

hi ,
We are also looking for something similar. But some of our programs are non-conversational so was just trying we can switch back and forth among these programs of which some are conversational and some are non-conversational.

Thanks,

Process 2 uses terminals and has a CHNG and ISRT call to the program for process 3.
The 3rd proces is a program not communicating to terminals; this one just decides which transaction is to be started and executes the proper CHNG and ISRT. From process 4 there are again terminals involved and a CHNG /ISRT to the program of process 3.

So: 2 CHNG/ISRT --> 3 CHNG/ISRT --> 4 --> CHNG/ISRT --> 3 CHNG/ISRT --> 2
