Clarification on CICS transaction.

Postby Viswanathchandru » Wed Mar 16, 2011 11:12 am

I have a CICS transaction and when i trigger the transaction in the cics region by giving the transaction id as "LMCF" i'm not getting anything. i mean to say the cics screen remains black without any abends or errors(neither output nor abends is thrown). I dont know what has gone wrong. When i trigger another transaction i'm getting some response(either output or some abends). Can anyone tell me what could be the reason for this. Thanks for your time.

Start CEDF on your terminal, then run your transaction. CEDF will stop on each EXEC CICS command so you can find out what's happening in the program.

Nobody can guess what is wrong with your program, but it sounds like you are not sending out your mask. Enter CEDF first, then enter your transaction name, this way you can follow the CICS commands that are being issued.
