To start a transaction in CICS all that is required is to login to CICS and give the task name that invokes this transaction. After that the transaction is visible when i CEMT I TAS command is given. is there a CICS command to stop a transaction? I am working on a CICS program (transaction) that gets started in the morning and runs throught out the day. It interacts with MQ and is used as an interface program with other systems. If this transaction needs to be stoped abruptly an appropriate message is sent through MQ and on reading this message the program terminates by itself. This method of termination does not work in development all the time, espicially if the progam goes into an infinite loop (because of new code)while doing a test. Is there any CICS command to stop it then.
I dont have access. But system operations have all the required access, but are not very clear on the procedure to do this. If I know what the command is I can atleast tell them to see if it will work. they have the command to disable the task that is used to start the transaction but not to stop the transaction.
