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?

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.
