Can I access CICS from batch JCL jobs?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I cannot understand why anyone would want to do this.

Just what part of CICS do you want to access? The STC? The address space?

Off hand I do not know how (and I tend to think the answer is NO), but I can’t think of any reason that anyone would want to “access CICS from batch.”

Part 2 – I did think of one reason you might want to do this…
from a batch job you could use SDSF to issue commands (even transactions) to CICS via the MODIFY (F) command. That might be legitimate reason to “access CICS from batch”, but these would have to be transactions that required no interaction. After all, where would the screen be presented and how would you enter any information. Further, you need RACF authorization to issue commands from SDSF.

Yest, its possible, take a look at >> www.batchcics.com
