Hi,

It will be helpful if you can provide sample PL/I-CICS combination programs.

Thanks,

No you don't. Presumably the people hiring you know that you have not done the PL/1 & CICS combination before and would not expect you to know. On of the first things you can do when you get to your new desk is look at current programs - you may even be working on an existing program. If you really want to know beforehand there are examples in the manuals - don't know which ones but Google will lead you to the right one(s) (try PL/1 & CICS as your search argument).

Hello,

There is sample code in the CICS Application Programming Reference manual, available via the "IBM Manuals" link at the top of the page.

If you've already done COBOL/CICS, you won't find a default data-name of "DFHCOMMAREA". It's a COBOL thing. PL/I (like Assembler) is more flexible and the commarea can be named to anything you'd like. However, if existing programs use a previously defined commarea data-name (or for that matter, follow any other standards), then you should follow their lead, so as to continue using these standards. Your colleagues will appreciate your efforts. icon_wink.gif Cuteness or "Cowboy Like" style can be a liability and may not be appreciated. icon_mad.gif
