intyerface batch with cics

Postby sidmorgy » Fri Jun 11, 2010 6:47 pm

I have a series of online programs that the users utilize to issue payments to clients. Each payment must go thru at least two screens and about 4 CICS programs. (There are many XCTLs.) These programs are exceedingly complex and convoluted.
To make a long (and proprietary) story short, I have a file containing client data that needs to be processed thru these online programs.
Is there a way I can write a batch program to read the file and kick off a CICS transaction -- or series of CICS transactions -- to issue the payments?

Hello and welcome to the forum,

There are tools available that allow batch to do what i believe you want. They are not free. You need to ask your system support if any of these is available on your system.
Hope this helps,
