We have made a few updates to our COBOL code to internally restart our program retry the IDMS command when there is an IDMS deadlock eg. Error code - 1229. But usually this kind of scenarios occur only in production and does not normally comes up in test environment. Is there any way I can recreate this scenario in test environment ? I mean to get an explicit lock on the record (using dmlo or something) so that when program executes the statement will encounter the deadlock.
