Hi,

I am running into a abnormal issue with Rexx for CICS. I have a ROR (Rexx Owning Region) that is connected to all of the regions in my shop. I have a TSQ model that is routing all traffic to the ROR.

Yesterday, I accidentally put myself into an infinite loop in a test region within a rexx program. Unfortunately i was unable to force the transaction out, so I had to just bounce the region. Once the region came back up, I fixed my loop issue and tested the program again.

Now the program is randomly executing the code. It is almost like the file structure is trashed. I turn on the trace, and watch the program execute line 71, 72, then randomly execute 111.

When I look at the source, it looks the same as before. I am guessing there is an object file that Rexx for CICS uses to execute the code.

Has anyone ran into an issue like this?

By the way, are there any forums or websites dedicated to Rexx for CICS? The documentation I can find for Rexx for CICS is of course the IBM Manual (poorly written) and a Share conference presentation.

FWIW, I have ZERO experience running REXX in CICS. Is REXX really necessary for what you want to do?

Would you have an alternative? CICS/Assembler perhaps?

Bill

The primary reason we have Rexx for CICS is the capability to execute CEDA commands programmatically and the fact that Rexx does an awesome job at parsing data... It's not something that we have to have for everyday use. I just use it occasionally to write a fast script that I don't want to take the time to write in cobol.

With SA/390 (if installed) you could execute INGCICS commands
incapsulated in Rexx procedures.

There is Vendor Software product that allows you to logically
communicate with any CICS transaction , including CEDA
from COBOL code (Batch program or CICS program).
