Q

Access to Unix system services through other application languages

This Content Component encountered an error

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.
