I have written a sample program in COBOL involving DB2 and CICS/TS. How do I make the program run i.e. what are
the necessary steps to define the various entries like DB2CONN, DB2ENTRY etc?
The CICS DB2 Guide contains the information you require. It describes how CICS connects to DB2, how to define the connections and how to enable a CICS program to access DB2. The Reference numbers are SC33-1939 (for the CICS TS V1.3 Manual) and SC34-6014 (for the CICS TS V2.2 Manual).
