The transactions I am developing are behaving unexpectedly.
Here is what happens:
Transaction LONG is supposed to be a long-running transaction. It listens to an IP socket and starts transaction DOIT whenever a message arrives.
But, instead of running and finishing in a split second, transaction DOIT enters "first dispatch wait" state, and becomes active only if I take LONG down.
Because I am still in an early stage of testing, I start LONG from my terminal, I also have tried CECI START locally and remotely, but the behavior doesn't change.
I checked definitions, nothing stands out and I am out of ideas. What do I miss ?

Since "DOIT" is in a wait until you terminate "LONG", it would suggest that "DOIT" may be waiting for the terminal which is hekl by "LONG". Does the "LONG" task issue the EXEC CICS START specifying the termid? (Or perhaps there is another resource which both require?)
I recompiled the LONG program with the INCLUDE EZACICAL, I bounced the CICS and retried.
Unfortunately, I still have an excessively long "QR TCB elapsed time" in the LONG transaction, and the started DOIT transactions are still delayed.
