While using that PCB from within a program, IMS will allow retrieval calls (G). It will read the segments even if some other program has them marked as updated but not committed (O). If it gets locked out of a segment because of an update from another program, it will wait a moment, then try again (T). It will allow position functioning using the D command code (path calls) (P).

I give you that information in return for a promise that you will never argue with anyone else using it as a reference. Instead, open the "IMS Utilities Reference: System" and read about the options yourself.

Thanks Dick!

Thanks Ed! Your reply had certainly helped me understand how GOTP actually works even after going through IMS manuals and reading posts out on google. I had read IMS manual as well but couldnt find exact working of GOTP. Thanks again!

Good to hear.

We use GOTP for all read-only jobs, like report extracts.

We use AP for all update jobs.

For a certain FEW read-only jobs, we use GP, which makes sure we only get committed changes while reading.

The cool thing about the "T", is that it can be coded for. When the lock out occurs, the COBOL program gets a 'GG' status code. So you can make the program go back and try it again several times. There is no U3303 abend in this case.
