Hi

I have a program that START a transaction TRANB with a delay of 10 mins. I know that all the trasaction with START DELAY will be placed in ICE chain. Now i want to modify my program in a way that it checks if there is already any transaction ICE chain before i issue a START TRANB again.

How can i check through my application program if a transaction is already in ICE chain. I checked the manuals but didnt get any clue.

do a search on ICE in the CICS forum.
I seem to remember (one or two years ago)
a thread about this.
you could also search on Bill Boyle, as he usually answers CICS questions.

which manuals did you check. did you look at the RED Books?
also, i would suggest googling ICE Chains in CICS.

Hi

Yes i searched in google but didn't get any API commands for this. I only got the expalanation and how to see ICE using OMEGAMON.

Let me search in our forum also

Have you looked at the EXEC CICS INQUIRE REQID command? These a section where browsing the REQIDs is mentioned.

I would concur with Garry. Make sure that when you issue the START for TRNB transaction, that you include a unique REQID in the command.

Then as Garry receommends, in the program that issues the START, before this Start, issue an : EXEC CICS INQUIRE REQID for this unique REQID. If found, then bypass your START
