Reply with quote

Hi

I am in the process of testing if an existing transaction will execute fine in a test region or not. However I do not know how this transaction is triggered.

I know of the following methods of starting a transaction and have already explored in my application. Am looking for other possible ways which could be in effect -

1. Start a transaction from native CICS screen
2. Triggering transaction using MQ Bridge
3. Coding EXEC CICS START in one of the application programs
4. ...
5. ...
6. ...

The SME of the application is not available and hence I am seeking help on this forum.

Regards
Bharat

Check the program for an ASSIGN STARTCODE API and hopefully, there are comments which will indicate the correct (or only) acceptable startcode value.

Some of these values are "TD", "SD", "S ", etc.

They are documented in the applicable CICS Application Programming Reference manual.

4. PLT entry during CICS start up
5. Triggering transaction via TD queue

and, as Bill suggested, check the start codes for other ways.

Also, transaction may be defined in terminal definition so that any input received from the terminal runs a pre-defined transaction with all input treated as data.
