Re:CVs up during ""soft"" timechange?

Discussion created by ca.portal.admin on Mar 15, 2006
our tech folks have decided now is the time to do a spring-foward time
change without benefit of IPL - I was asked, and I do not have clue, can
the IDMS regions stay up during a ""soft"" (if that is the cirrect
termonology) time change? or must they be doen to refresh any system
registers (such as time) that acquired at CV startup ??

Re: Starting a CICS transaction from IDMS
"Thanks to everyone who responded. I used the printer support as suggested as
part of the solution. The original requirement was to provide a mechanism to
read data from DB2 on a remote machine from within an ADS dialog without
using sockets or spending any money. I think we have a workable solution.

I didn't suggest APPC as I believe it to be yesterday's technique, I would
have preferred to use sockets but the CICS people weren't receptive to that.

Anyway, thanks for the ideas.

Jim.

Hi John,

If you have UCF printer support set up, you can have the background task
write the parameter information to a ""dummy"" UCF printer id. You define
the dummy printer id just like any other UCF printer. On the CICS end, in
the DCT entry, you define your own program for reading the parameter
information from the temporary data queue and then have that program kick
off a CICS transaction. We do something like this to kick off a CICS
background task to transmit electronic work orders. One thing to keep in
mind is that the first record in the temporary data queue contains some
control information, and I believe the parameter information may start in
the second record in the queue. I know that this is just a rough sketch,
but maybe its enough to give you some ideas.
