I have an online program that access some files. Is it possible to know the files used by that program with out seeing the source code. This is an interview question faced by one of my friends..

Hi,

Please Check this Link,
If the status is open (O) then it is used. No otherwise

During the fact, CEDF/X will let you see each EC but it will really slow down the execution....After the fact, you could dump AUX trace for the transaction, if you had been running it.....

The only thing that an open status can tell you is that the file is open, nothing more.

From a CICS screen how can i get these details. I mean what is the command to get these details. Even the program name is nowhere mentioned. So how could v know that these files are getting used by a specific program??
