Hi,

In what context you here this? 'Standalone' is an english word which stands for 'individual', 'unconnected' and 'region' means 'area'...so an 'unconnected area'..

In CICS there are AOR(Application owning region), TOR (Terminal owning region),FOR (File Owning Region) like that there is also a stand alone region....

Only if u know CICS you will know these

Just a guess !

Usually CICS is setup with many regions dedicated to different tasks
( for example )

TOR - Terminal Owning region
AOR _ Application Owning
FOR - file owning region

a standalone region would be in this sense a CICS setup where all the functions/facilities
are implemented in a single region

Hello bmathuri and welcome to the forums,

No, he was simply trying to find where you were coming from as your first post did not conform to the forum "rules for posting". When you post a new topic, you want to specify a meaningful topic (which you did) and then include detail info abut your request in the body of the topic. Your topic text contains the forum "first time info" and nothing about your request.

Possibly another way to think of a "standalone region" is one that is not part of some MRO configuration. As Enrico mentioned, it is self-contained.

My location shown under my avtar is Mumbai, India but now a days I work in MST timings, so actually above time is equivalent to 1:00 A.M. (midnight) here in U.S. (MST). I sware, if I work this late I'm never in a mood of fun & never I was.. icon_smile.gif.

Well, 'we' usually assume that what "happens" at 'our' shop (shop, the mainframes wolrd of the company in which we work) same "terminologies" are applicable all over, but sometimes they are not; as stated by enrico

Well, nothing to worry, we all were caught in this once in a while.. icon_smile.gif

bmathuri,

In addition to all the regions, there is also a DOR(data owning region) . May be fOR region also refers to the same but just thought of mentioning.
