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

Why can't you set the dbname in ads by issuing the DCUF command by
calling the program, the dbname is stay set until something changes it
just like the dictname does when you set it by doing a DCUF SET DICTNAME
