Hi,

I have a CICS program and corresponding transaction which gets executed from a batch program. How can I get control of execution of this CICS program to see why its abending.

Is there a way, when a CICS program is called from a batch program within xpediter, I get control of the CICS program in xpediter or CICS itself? I put a break point in CICS program, but didnt get control. Is there a way I get control across terminals?

Thanks,
Gopi

You can always add displays and check corresponding CICS region job to see the cause.

We can intercept in Xped. May be the control did not even cross the break point in your case.

don't have access to manual or mf but,
in cics xped, you can trap a transaction or module
by putting all * (e.g. ***********) in the terminal name field on the screen.

but, be sure you are the only one testing, you will catch all invocations of the trans/module.

i think it is menu option 0.6 but I don't remember. you will have to explore.

the * trick was not ever documented (as of 2012 when I last worked) but it works.

putting DISPLAYs in a cics module used to be a no-no
if for no other reason, all the background shit that it started.
MY OPINION - if you have xped, you certainly do not need displays for debugging- batch or cics.

Thank you all... putting ** in the terminal ID worked.
