Currently my CICS program writes to a Intra-partition TDQ which in turn invokes another CICS transaction.
My organization is moving to High-availability platform where Intra-partition TDQ will not be supported anymore.
My question is - Can I use EXEC CICS START to invoke the same transaction that is currently being triggered by TDQ? Will this give same/similar asynchronous behavior as with TDQ?

P.S. I understand that the program that currently processes messages from TDQ will have to change to RETRIEVE from COMMAREA now.
The original process is in place for 15+ years and noone knows if there was s specific reason why a TDQ was used here.

It may be because it is based on Trigger level , check it out DCT.

However, you could do CICS START but when you move to High-availability ( CICSPlex) you would need to talk to your site support staff first to see how the affinities needs to be handled.
