Hi,

I have a couple of on-line screens where user can input some data, which will be updated to an IMS DB. I want to run a batch job periodically which also tries to update the same database.

I dont want to bring down the CICS region while the batch is running,

Is there any method to implement this without bringing down the region.

Thanks.

You can try writing your own EXCI interface between batch and CICS.

From what you described, easiest approach would be a vendor product
that allows you to write some batch cobol code to logically feed data
into your existing on-line Screens without bringing down cics. (no changes
to the on-line program).

suggest you reveiw BatchCICS-Connect >> www.batchcics.com

sample batch code:

exec hbi run transaction ('xxxx')
inbound map ('xxxxxxx') mapset ('xxxxxxxx')
outbound map ('xxxxxxx') mapset ('xxxxxxxx')
end-exec

search the CICS doc with the string "shared database"

Since You did not tell anything about Your environment we cannot
give any advice, just make suggestions

If You have the proper setup ( cics/ims)

You could run Your batch IMS jobs, with full integrity, as BMP
