Converting the journal file to the logging that is used by the transaction server?

We are moving to the CICS Transaction server. Presently we have an application that uses CICS journals to capture transactions and then uses the journal file in a batch COBOL program to integrate with another application. Is there a way to convert the journal file to the logging that is used by the transaction server?

You need to read the log streams (representing the Journal) in 'old' format as opposed to the 'new' native mode. All you need to do is bung on a SUBSYS =(LOGR,DFHLGCNV) statement onto the DD represeting the log stream and you COBOL program should run OK.

If this does not, however, work then you will have to run DFHJUP.COPY and get it to convert the records into a &&TEMP file before running the COBOL program.

This is all documented in the Ops&Utilities guide (Chapter 7 in my CTS 1.3 copy).
