CICS questions

Post by cobolhunt » Thu Apr 26, 2012 4:27 pm

can anyone answer these questions quickly ?
1) To receive the characters from the terminals as they are (ie "a" != "A") we need to use ---------- option

2) CICS Program A does a static CALL to Program B. Program does not have Local program entry in the region. What happens now?

3) A program Z can be invoked from multiple transactions that updates a CICS shared resource. There is high possibility that the program can run concurrently. How do you serialize the shared resource access in the program?

4) CICS Program X creates a TSQ in MAIN storage, before issuing a SYNCPOINT the program abends. What happens to the TSQ and is there a way to recover TSQ?

the way it works with questions and answers:

1. you pose the question and then provide what you think is the answer.
if you don't know the answer, hit the books!

2. we respond, when we have time, if we want to.

You need not post the same thing on multiple forums. . .

Sometimes the penalty is a bit of a flame, sometimes the duplicate(s) are deleted, and sometimes (on forums where the moderators have more control), the userid is banned/removed. . .

And the more you mention "quickly" the less likely you are to recieve a quick, usable reply. . .
