I am deleberatly genrating transaction dump using below syntax. The dump is generated but I dont want the CICS task to actually abend but the processing flow should continue.

The only reason I require DUMP to see the contents all the involved programs at certain point in the logical flow.

So question is can I generate dump without actually abending the task?

Forgot to post syntax.

Code:

EXEC CICS DUMP TRANSACTION COMPLETE                           
     DUMPCODE ('1234')
     RESP (TP-RESP-CODE)                             
     RESP2 (TP-RESP2-CODE)                           
END-EXEC

Why did you not test yourself, to find out that the EXEC CICS DUMP is just producing a transaction dump, and NOT abending the task, compared to EXEC CICS ABEND, which also produces a transaction dump AND abends???
If you run CEDF to debug your program you can se what you want.

Wait wait... it sounds as if they DID try it, and the CICS task went down.

I think the real problem is that the CICS task abended even using the "DUMP" command.

Is that true?

Or abended for some reason irrelevant to the DUMP command, just by coincidence

If the DUMP actually caused an abend, talk to your support, since it shouldn't according to the documentation, there is probably something awry somewhere.

I investigated this further and came to know that with the DUMP genration the HANDLE ABEND comes into picture and labled para for abend handling is executed and the consequent logical flow of the program is not executed.

Is this expected behavior? If yes then is there any work-around for this?

The Handle Abend is a very special command, and must be used with care. and can be used only if you really know what you are doing.
This doesn't seem to be the case.
The normal behavior is, of course, to handle an abend-situation.

Why have you included a Handle Abend?
