Re: Passing data to new task

Hi Kay:

As I'm sure you're aware, you can't pass a parameter list to a task via
DC ATTACH. However, you can pass a parameter list via DC SETIME (use
TYPE=WAIT,INTVL=0). I've used this before, so please feel free to email
me directly if you'd like additional information about SETIME.

Of course, you can use DC ATTACH, but you'll have to use conventional
data passing structures/methodologies, including user storage,
Scratch/Queue/database records, etc.

All of the above options have various ramifications, but SETIME is
probably the very easiest to implement.

Regards,

Tom Schoenborn

Re: Upgrade to CICS 3.2
"Recommend having APAR's (this was for R15.0 QO79400 and QO83569), most likey equivilants are availbable for R16 or it's on the Base Tape. There is a PIP within these APAR's I would read as well, for there was one more APAR (I didn't need that one)

Anyone know of any issues with the UCF interface when going from CICS
3.1 to CICS 3.2 on z/OS and R16 SP1 ?

Re: Passing data to new task
"Tom, I hope this is not a dumb question: Could the second program be written in COBOL, and still be able to access the parameter list?

The reason I am asking these questions is that we are looking for a way to kick off a new process from a database (schema) procedure. The database procedure is assembler of course, but we would rather write the new process in COBOL. (I believe an ADS mapless dialog is out of the question. Please let me know if I am wrong about that.)

I think the other solution might be to write the passed data to a queue with a trigger level of one, as per Gary's suggestion. (I also like Gary's TCP/IP suggestion, but am not thrilled with the idea of trying to do that in assembler...)
