Hi,

I am working on a cics dispatcher (A). It gets the input from a queue and at the end of each record processing it needs to call a module (B) with a linkage copybook. Now my question is my program A need not to wait for return from module B, it can continue with its next record processing from the input queue.

Is it possible? If so please explain me how? I don't think that program B name should be present in the program A's plan/dbrmlist. please correct me if I am wrong.

Have you looked at EXEC CICS START TRANSACTION?

needs to call a module

WTF are you tasked with a CICS problem when you don't understand basic COBOL?

you have no choice; if you use a CALL to prgm B, then A will wait until B returns/ends.

Hello,

So to do what you want to do, you have to look at alternatives to CALL . . . If you even attempt this at all. . .

Let's say there are 10000 queued "input messages" I suspect 10000 spontaneous transactions should not be dispatched as quickly as the queue can be read.

There may be something i am missing, but i suspect this is not a proper assignment/requirement for a trainee. . .
