I have the source code consisting of SQL statements and CICS commands. The normal procedure for executing the source code is:
Source-code --> DB2 Precompiler --> CICS Translator --> COBOL Compiler --> Linkage Editor --> Load Module.Now, what will happen if I place CICS-translator first followed by DB2 pre-compiler and why should DB2 pre-compiler come before CICS Translator?
I don't think this should be a problem. However, with the latest Compilers you get an Integrated Translater for both CICS and DB2, so all these additional pre-processing steps simply disappear.....and you get the bonus of proper line numbering occuring in included files.
