Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED: All IBM HourGlass R610 intending to          *
    *                 utilize HourGlass with CICS 5.1.             *
    *                 Older versions of CICS will continue to      *
    *                 be supported w/no visible changes.           *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: CICS 5.1 MACLIBs differ from those of   *
    *                      CICS 4.2 in ways requiring modification *
    *                      of HourGlass to support CICS 5.1.       *
    *                      Also older CICS version specific code   *
    *                      comparision strings, used for detecting *
    *                      CICS calls for which no HourGlass date  *
    *                      time adjustments should be made, do not *
    *                      match the CICS 5.1 code and would cause *
    *                      undesireable HourGlass date time        *
    *                      adjustments, often matching previously  *
    *                      reported (and previously fixed)         *
    *                      problems with earlier CICS and          *
    *                      HourGlass versions.                     *
    *                      Attemped use of previous HourGlass      *
    *                      versions w/CICS 5.1 would cause         *
    *                      HourGlass to ABEND in various places    *
    *                      and at various times, and thus be       *
    *                      unusable for the attempted purpose.     *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION: Apply the PTF.                               *

    * FIX DESCRIPTION:     Logic in the modules included in this  *

    *                      CICS DSECT offsets between CICS        *
    *                      versions at run time, with new code for*
    *                      determining CICS 5.1 offsets, where it *
    *                      differs from CICS 4.2. Some of the old *
    *                      code for doing this is also now better *
    *                      documented.                            *
    *                      Also CICS 5.1 version specific code    *

    *                      CICS calls for which no HourGlass time *
    *                      adjustments should be made, have been  *
    *                      added.                                 *

    * IMPLEMENTATION:    * After installing the fix for this APAR *
    *                      it will be necessary to reexecute the  *
    *                      HourGlass customization job. One or    *
    *                      more elements replaced by this fix are *
    *                      modified by the HourGlass customization*
    *                      process.                               *

    *                    * Due to the replacement of the AGGFRONT *
    *                      module, it will be necessary to stop   *
    *                      and restart the HourGlass product, via *
    *                      an AGGOFF/AGGON command sequence, to   *
    *                      fully implement this fix.              *
    *                                                             *
    *                    * It will also be necessary to stop and  *
    *                      cold restart, any running CICS         *
    *                      region(s) in which the fix is to be    *
    *                      implemented.                           *
    *                                                             *
    *                    * It will also be necessary to bind      *
    *                      the new AGGDL and AGGDR to any DB2     *
    *                      versions to be used with CICS.         *
    *                                                             *
    *                    * To run the newly supported CICS 5.1    *
    *                      with HourGlass, one must also follow   *
    *                      currently documented steps for         *
    *                      supporting CICS 4.2, modified as one   *
    *                      obviously intuits so as to be done to  *
    *                      the CICS 5.1 environment, instead of to*
    *                      the CICS 4.2 environment.              *
    *                                                             *
