Reply with quote

I have a requirement in implementing time stamp in CICS with the below format.
Code:
2003-04-24T10:01:02+00:00
YYYY-MM-DDTHH:MM:SS+..


1. When i searched in google i got to know it is RFC3339 format. Is there a way to populate current time stamp with the above format in CICS?

2. I am able to populate date, time value with filler like the below but unable to populate last 5 characters(00:00).
2003-04-24T10:01:02+

Can you please let me know how to populate only time zone value in COBOL-CICS program. I hope +00:00 indicates the time zone value. Please correct me if i am wrong.

Code:
EXEC CICS ASKTIME ABSTIME(time-variable) END-EXEC
EXEC CICS FORMATTIME ABSTIME(time-variable)
          DATESTRING (data-area)
          STRINGFORMAT (RFC3339)
          END-EXEC
is how I would do it (although I would add RESP and a response variable). time-variable is an 8-byte packed decimal and data-area is PIC X(64).

After getting a chance to test the commands, what is actually needed is
Code:
EXEC CICS ASKTIME ABSTIME(time-variable) END-EXEC
EXEC CICS FORMATTIME ABSTIME(time-variable)
          DATESTRING (data-area)
          RFC3339
          END-EXEC
