Hi

I could not find any information about TWA in neither Natural Help nor on the net.

I have not understood the concept of TWA.
Explanations are welcome

The TWA (Transaction Work Area), was originally defined for use in MACRO/CICS programs (COBOL, Assembler, etc) and is still used in many Command-Level/CICS programs to this day, but has fallen out of favor in many shops, primarily because it is considered an "Affinity".

It is defined at the PCT (Transid) level in CEDA/RDO.

For more information, please refer to the Resource Definition Guide, Application Programming Guide and Application Programming Reference manuals, applicable to your CICS version/release.

NATURAL uses TWA as its main communication tool between the NATURAL entities and CICS (something you would do with COMMAREA when using COBOL).
