Subject: a dilemma (my lack of ADS exposed again)

our developers have asked us to create a clone database (a collection of
10
segments) within the same development CV as the original (this will
never
be done in prod).

the caveat - they want to be able to execute all programs against either
database with no program changes. For batch - no problem - sysidms to
the
rescue - but CICS is a problem

from a CICS menu - the app jumps into the CV and executes a ADS/A user
menu. We can determine from what CICS the jump came from - we could move
something to DB-NAME in the premap and response of the user menu dialog
-
however - since the user menu does no DML - no bind takes place and no
dbname is set

does an execute next function extend a run unit - or at least preserve
the
dbname (of it did - i would put SOME dml in the user menu to force a
bind)?
is there any other way to preserve the dbname across sibling dialogs
within
an ADS/A structure? or is an exit the way to go?

any thoughts would be greatly appreciated

"Chris,

The ADS/A response definition screen will allow you to define how the
next dialog will be initiated. Execute next function will execute what
is specified, when the next dialog is initiated. Below is an example of
the response definition screen.

John
