Hi,

Currently there is a batch job that triggers a CICS mapless transaction to do some business process.

The new requirement is have the same job trigger the CICS mapless transaction even if the CICS region is down.

Just want to hear your thoughts if this is possible or any one has faced this before.

Regards
Mags

Since a CICS transaction REQUIRES CICS resources to be able to execute, if the region is down, exactly how do you think the transaction can acquire the resources to execute? It's not like a COBOL batch program where the files are specifed in the ENVIRONMENT DIVISION!

Hello,

Why does this need to be a cics transaction?

I've not yet seen cics "things" done when there is no cics active to support them. . .

Good day to all!

When I read this post I am convinced that the dept who wrote the requirements doesn't know anything about the CICS system. First, if the CICS region is down how are your going to trigger the CICS transaction to run the program? I really think that the requirement is to write a batch job to do the same process as the online program is doing in updating certain files (like rolling over dates) that is define to the CICS region. Your job stream should run a utility that will test to see if the CICS region is up if true then trigger the online transaction otherwise execute the new program which will do the process thru batch.
