Hi,

Would there be any practical scenario where conversational programming must be used and pseudo conversational programming can't satisfy the requirement?

Thanks
Pranav

Any situation where there is no direct human interface to the CICS application.

Gary, sorry I did not understand. If there is no human interface, between whom the conversation is going on? Any practical application where you have seen it's usage?

Thanks

IBM transaction CECI and Compuware transaction XPED are two examples of Conversational Transactions.

Its not that there's a conversation going on. The technique is conversational.

In conversational programming, all storage allocated to a process is allocated from start to end. In pseudo-conversational, the process is made up of several sub-processes, for each of which storage is allocated. Storage in each part of a pseudo conversation is freed when that part of the process ends. Thus memory can be freed during the operators' 'think-time'.

Where, say, a message from a front-end system is received (maybe over WebsphereMQ), the message can be processed in its entirety without need for allowing for operator 'think-time'. This would be handled by a conversational application.

GaRRy.

LU6.2 (APPC) communications occur in a conversation -- the two systems exchange data until they've finished in a single transaction.
