CA IDMS CICS Considerations

DC/UCF supports the following TP-monitors: CICS, CMS (z/VM), CA IDMS, DC, TSO, and batch. When using any of these TP monitors, you can execute programs that use CA IDMS central version database services.

DC/UCF supports the following TP-monitors: CICS, CMS (z/VM), CA IDMS, DC, TSO, and batch. When using any of these TP monitors, you can execute programs that use CA IDMS central version database services.
Each CA IDMS program that executes under one of these TP monitors must be link edited with the appropriate program interface module. To execute CA IDMS central version programs under TP monitors other than CICS, use the standard CA IDMS batch interface or a custom TP-monitor interface. This section describes the interfaces you need for CICS.
The CA IDMS CICS interface consists of three components:
  • A stub module generated by the IDMSCINT or IDMSCINL macro that is linked with application programs requiring CA IDMS services.
  • A stub module that is linked with a site-specific CICSOPT options module and exit routines.
  • A site-independent interface module called IDMSCCMN that contains containing only CA-supplied code.
Both the standard IDMSINTC and the IDMSINTL interfaces conform to this architecture.
