Re: calling ADS from DC COBOL

I believe there are many applications that execute ads dialogs
by=0D=0Asysg= enning the dialog name as a task and invoking adosrun1 as
the=0D=0Aprogram= =2E That's a tried and proven method I think=2E
However, that's not=0D=0A= the same as calling or linking to an adso
dialog, as starting a task can=0D= =0Aonly be done with a return
next-task code 'xxxx'=2E there is a method= =0D=0Athough, because i've
seen adso start a task/program in the cics regio= n,=0D=0Abelieve it or
not, and they in turn started on in the idms region= =2E
UDAS=0D=0Aanyone? I dont remember the details, but I remember reading=

Re: calling ADS from DC COBOL
"We do it here. Some of our programmers call it ""the magic link"". It's
not simple - you have to write special transfer programs on both sides
to pass/retrieve the PDAT storage and start the correct program on the
receiving side.

But this is transferring control to a new task, not calling or linking.
So not a solution to the original question.
