There are two ways to find
One is
Find for the keyword 'EXEC CICS' in the program. If it finds then it is a online program otherwise it is a Batch program.
second one is
Go to Endevor option 1.1.1.1.

ENVIRONMENT ==> PROD
SYSTEM ==> MEMB
SUBSYSTEM ==> MEMB
ELEMENT ==> PROGRAM NAME HERE
TYPE ==> PUT * HERE
STAGE ==> P FOR PRODUCTION AND S FOR PREPROD

THEN ENTER

it will give the type of program

If it is a COBOL 3 PROGRAM it will give => BATCB3
If it is a COBOL 2 PROGRAM it will give => BATCB2
If it is a COBOL 2-DB2 PROGRAM it will give => BATDB2
If it is a COBOL 3-DB2 PROGRAM it will give => BATDB3

Likewise it will give for CICS also

Hope this information will help u

Also we can identify whether its an online pgm or a batch without opening the pgm itself.We can identify them by its name.

As per programming standards,CICS program is identified by the letter 'C' as the middle letter of the program name and BATCH program is identified by the letter 'B' as the middle letter of the program name.

Eg.;

1) xyzC123 is an online program(identified by 4th letter as 'C').
2) xyzB124 is a batch program(identified by 4th letter as 'B').

I won't agree with you. These standards differ from shop to shop. Each shop will have their own naming conventions.

Yes.Standards may differ icon_smile.gif .

This standard way of naming convention is one of the best and easiest way of identifying whether its online or batch.Doesn't it seems so?

The original poster was asked about differentiating Online and batch programs. And was not asking for the naming standard that you are following.
I would not have to disagree with you if you posted your reply as a suggestion rather than giving a statement like

Just to make a point that your post may mislead the original poster icon_lol.gif
