    ****************************************************************
       The CICS Management Client Interface (CMCI) rendered CICS
    interval attributes as H:MM:SS, causing high order digits of
    the hour segment to be lost.  The CICS Explorer displays the
    values as rendered by the CMCI Server to which it connects.
    

Problem conclusion

  •    The CMCI Internal-to-External formatting module DFHWUI2E
    (WUI2E) was modified to render interval values as HHHH:MM:SS
    to be consistent with the rendering of other time-related
    attribute data types.
       Module DFHWUSCH (WUSCH - Deliver CMCI XML Schema) was modi-
    fied to define interval attributes as
         <xsd:pattern value=" 0-9 {4}: 0-9 {2}: 0-9 {2}"/>
