Do we have any tool or can we write some JCL to compress
Files which are open in the CICS environment and currently in use
without having to close them in CICS.

If already posted , kindly provide the link .

you can directly compress datasets on 3.4 by entering command Z but dataset must be closed for this action else you wil receive a error that dataset is open.

Hello,

Why do you think you have to compress cics datasets while cics is running?

This is not the requested answer. . . Name the ddnames or dsns.

You may want to consider changing these datasets to PDSE.
