Error description

  • You are trying to run the program control example for JCICS on
    how to use the JCICS program class to pass a COMMAREA to
    another program. But it seems that the setNextCOMMAREA() method
    is not correctly set up for the COMMAREA on the EXEC CICS
    RETURN.
    You are using the program control examples located at
    /samples/dfjcics/examples/ProgramControl/
    The setNextCOMMAREA() did not correctly set up the COMMAREA for
    the return. You can see that COMMAREA is null, and the
    COMMAREALength is 0 while stepping through using CEDF. But
    referring to the documentation this does not act as described.

    *                      work correctly in CICS V4.2 whereby     *
    *                      the commarea is lost on a return.       *

    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    In CICS V4.2, when JCICS program tries to pass a COMMAREA using
    setNextCOMMAREA() method, COMMAREA is not correctly set up
    for the next transaction. The EXEC CICS RETURN shows null
    COMMAREA and the length of COMMAREA is 0. Because the COMMAREA
    length is now only set when JCICS fails to get the COMMAREA
    elements.

Temporary fix

  • FIX AVAILABLE BY PTF ONLY
    

Comments

  • DTCPROGRAM has been changed to set correct CommArea length
    when JCICS gets the COMMAREA successfully during the EXEC
    CICS RETURN.
