A. A unit of work assigned by Operationg System.
B. An entity to initiate ta task
C. Must have a transcation identifier entry in the transction control table
D. Support multitasking by initiating the same task if the transction is initiated again within
a short span.
2. Program-A passess by 30 bytes to Program B through COMMAREA
Program-B Has defined its DFHCOMMAREA to be 50 Bytes.
If Program-B tries to access bytes 31-50 what will happen?
A. It abends with ASRA
B. It abends with SOC4
3. When a program transfers control to CICS
A. A new task is created
B. the tranid is changed
C. it causes and implicit SYNCPOINT
D. All the other options listed for this questions
4. Use of PACKAGES in DB2 utility that is used for making the DB2 Catalog up-to-date?
A. Locking the entire transaction during bind of plan
B. Avoiding binding a large number of DBRM members into a plan
C. Locks the entire transction during automatic rebind of a plan

5. The linkedit step in a complie link JCL for a COBOL program, writes the load module to
A. SYSOUT DD statement
B. SYSLIB DD statement
C. SYSLIN DD statement
D. SYSLMOD DD statement
E. Either SYSLIB DD statement or SYSLIN DD statement depending on whether IEWL or HEWL os coded on PGM= parameter in the link step
6. Operating System issues SOC1 completion code when?
7. Point out that is not true w.r. to File Maxx VSAM Transparency Facility(VTF) (Pls tell me a VTF)
A. Most reads and updates are performed randomly
B. Batch programs that must read entire VSAM files sequentially are already, or can easily become
, insensitive to the order in which records are returned.
C. Each VSAM file may consist of many different kinds of records, each having a different record
length. However, all records of the same type have the same or nearly the same , length
D. None of the above
8. Following points is/are true w.r. to Record Level Sharing(RLS)
A. RLS addresse physical data integrity issues, such as read consistency, record locking and system logging. But it does not address logical issues, such as enforcement
and protection of bussiness or integrity rules.
B. Under RLS, VSAM retains most of its functional limitations . VSAM does not support multiple -field composite keys,multiple valued keys, NULL
-suppressed keys, and/or non-unique alternate indexes with unlimited occurences of the same key value. Each VSAM index remains confined to a single base cluster,
and cannot extend across cluster boundaries
C. Under RLS, VSAM remains an underlying architecture that is not appropriate for relational
/SQL Processing. Although third party products allow sql queries of VSAM file, VSAM itself is not
well suited to such queries.
D. All the above

CICS book autor kagayama..helps in most of the questions
6 S0C1 occurs when
Amode was set to 24, but a branch was attempted to a
31-bit or (on z/OS) a 64-bit address
Tried to read a file that was not open
Misspelled DDNAME followed by attempted I/O to same file
Missing DD card followed by attempted I/O to same file
Recording mode was wrong, or density was incorrect
COBOL: subroutine prog ID was the same as the entry name tried to call within COBOL sort I/O procedure tried to call a subroutine which could not be found incomplete DCB for SORTIN file using sort verb, DDNAME was not SORTOUT when the "giving" option was used.
