Access to Unix system services through other application languages

Will CICS, in the future, support access to Unix system services through other application languages, say C/C++

as is provided for Java using the J8 OPEN TCB?

We have no plans to provide this function. Please get your IBM person to raise a requirement for you.

As an experiment, I tried doing an IEBGENER from a HFS file but the OPEN macro failed in an alarming fashion. Thus, as essentially the same macro is used for a TDQ access, I don't think you can put in a HFS file in the CICS JCL and then try to access it as a TDQ.
