Hi All,

Can anybody explain about the usage of CA utility DADSBBI in CICS?

I saw it is used to allocate and deallocate datasets in online/batch region. But it is also used to initialize CICS transaction. I'm a bit confused how this utility is working exactly.

Thanks in advance.

Hi.

It is part of CA's CA-DADS for CICS product. This specific module, if I remember correctly, is the DADS Batch Interface, which allow interfacing with CICS from batch.

Thanks Ofer71,

In my case, we have the load of this utility to use. So we are unaware of the performance of this utlity.

Whenever we use this utlity we use to give a file in DADSBIF parameter. I guess this file is to capture all return codes and error codes encountered during a transaction. Apart from this, Is there any specific significance for the file? The same utility is enabling a CICS transaction too. I just need to know about the significance of this utility. I here by pasted the code. Please let me know if anybody knows about this in detail.

//DADSBIF EXEC PGM=DADBBI
//STEPLIB DD DSN=DADSPLUS.LOADLIB,DISP=SHR
//DADSBIF DD DSN=DADSPLUS.DADSBIF,DISP=SHR
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*,DCB=(LRECL=133,BLKSIZE=133,RECFM=FBA)
//SYSIN DD *
FUNCTION=DADS,APPLID=(CICSAPPL,CONTINUE)
COMMAND=START MYTR (TRANS DATA - 35 chars)
//

Thanks in advance!

Hello,

The posted jcl should start a transaction named MYTR in the CICSAPPL cics region.

As mentioned previously, it is a way to interface with CICS from batch.

Thanks alot for your explanation Dick,

Apart from initiating a transaction in a particular CICS region, there are some more parameters which we use to pass. Do you people have any idea about the following parameters?

REQUEST=(A,C,R10TRAN)
(TRANS DATA - 35 chars)
