Pure CICS programs are usually identified by looking 'EXEC CICS' statements in them.

For DB2 programs - you should look for 'EXEC SQL' statements.

COBOL programs are identified by the fact that they are written in the COBOL language.

I don't know what do you mean by 'jcl programs' ?

JCL Statement syntax :
Identifier Name Statement operands Comments
//JOB1 JOB ,,NOTIFY=$SYSUID
If you find statements which start with // in first 2 columns and the first statement is either JOB or PROC then its a JCL.

Correct me if I am wrong....

Hi,
In addition to the above you doesnt see any fd entries in CICS program,

if you find // in cols 1 and 2 it may be jcl or proc,as said above if you find job card information it is a jcl if you find the first line as "//memebername proc ***** then it is a proc

There are few ways by which you can check without opening a program also.
1. check the compile JCL or Run JCL

only COBOL : proc used IGYWCLG
COB, DB2 : There will be a BIND Step and proc is DSNHCOB
COB, CICS : BMSJCL for MAP only.
proc used is DFHEITVL

2. There is a search string option in ISPF by which you can search a particular string in a program without opening the program. By using that option you can search if EXEC CICS and EXEC SQL commands are there in the program or not.
I don't remember the exact option but probably it is 3.1.3 or 3.1.4 .

Correct me if I am wrong.

Ranjit....
