    *                      container data to CICS over the IPIC    *
    *                      protocol, transactions in CICS are      *

    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    When CICS TG sends channel and container data to CICS over the
    IPIC protocol, the data is split into 60k chunks. Some data
    must not be split across two chunks, however, in some situations
    CICS TG incorrectly splits data and sends it to CICS. Reading
    the incorrectly split data causes the reported CICS errors. The
    transaction is abended in CICS with abend code AITJ. The client
    application might become unresponsive.
    

Problem conclusion

  • CICS Transaction Gateway has been changed to rectify the error.
