My memory is rusty for CICS TS1.3
If I have a COBOL program which "CALLS" an assembler or COBOL program (dynamic or static) (it does not do a EXEC CICS LINK/XCTL) is this still regarded as a NONO in CICS.
I now that the calling program can be deemed no reentrant/reusable as the storage from the called program is static (working storage or the assembler constants is modified) and is not transaction independent as the programmer has not done a getmain nor does cics recognise the working storage or the assembler storage as being RENT.
Am I correct in thinking this still the case as it was under CICS 1.3 to CICS 4.1.
Can someone confirm as I Cannot find it in the CICS manuals.
