1. Google two-phase commit and read the Wikipedia article.
2. CICS programs that are invoked via a transaction must be defined in the PPT or the transaction will not run. The question is asking whether this is also true for programs invoked via a COBOL CALL statement.

If your CICS system has program autoinstall turned on then a PPT entry will be created as each one is called so you don't need to have every program pre-defined.

Your questions sound like interview questions ?


CALLED" programs do not need CICS entries.

Non-Dynamic CALLED" programs are link edited' at compile time
with your CICS program
