Is it possible for one CICS program to invoke another using a CALL instead of a LINK?

In EXCI, is it possible to invoke a CICS program by another CICS progarm using a "CALL" instead of a LINK? For...

Example: There are two CICS programs, Program-A and program-B. In Program-A can we say "CALL 'PROGRAM-B' USING PARAMI, PARAMO."?


I'm not sure where EXCI comes into this: perhaps you mean that prog A is invoked via EXCI. Once you are in CICS, you can use COBOLs dynamic linkage facilities to call another CICS program. However, this way of execution iss much less efficient than a CICS link due to LE overheads.
