    * USERS AFFECTED: All IBM HourGlass R610 users utilizing       *
    *                 HourGlass CICS support and desiring to       *
    *                 set the HourGlass date/time for CICS         *
    *                 regions via a batch process, rather          *
    *                 than through the HGCC online interac-        *
    *                 tive transaction process.                    *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: Users of the HourGlass CICS support     *
    *                      feature required the capability to set  *
    *                      the HourGlass date/time for a CICS      *
    *                      region via a batch process, rather than *
    *                      through the HGCC online interactive     *
    *                      transaction process, which is currently *
    *                      supplied by the HourGlass product. This *
    *                      APAR describes an enhancement to the    *
    *                      HourGlass CICS support, the HourGlass   *
    *                      CICS Batch Time Management feature,     *
    *                      which supplies the capability to set    *
    *                      the HourGlass date/time for the CICS    *
    *                      region (the global date/time setting,   *
    *                      analogous to the existing HGCC online   *
    *                      transaction) from a date and/or time    *
    *                      setting previously stored in the        *
    *                      AGGDATE file.                           *

Problem conclusion

  • ***************************************************************
    * FIX DESCRIPTION:     1.  Logic has been added to the AGGCC  *
    *                      program to provide support for the new *
    *                      HourGlass CICS Batch Time Management   *
    *                      feature. Executing under transaction   *
    *                      code HGCB, the enhanced logic in the   *
    *                      AGGCC program processes the AGGDATE    *
    *                      file as a CICS extrapartition Transient*
    *                      Data Queue (TDQ). The AGGDATE file is  *
    *                      read and the contents examined,        *
    *                      searching for validly formatted date   *
    *                      and/or time settings. If valid date/   *
    *                      time settings are found, they are used *
    *                      to reset the HourGlass global date/time*
    *                      settings in the CICS region.           *
    *                                                             *
    *                      2.  The AGGCRD11 and AGGCRD13 members  *
    *                      of the SAGGSAMP library have been up-  *
    *                      dated to include:                      *
    *                      a. A new transaction: HGCB, which is   *
    *                      defined to execute the AGGCC program,  *
    *                      for the Batch Time Management feature. *
    *                      b. A new extrapartition Transient Data *
    *                      Queue: AGGDATE.                        *
    *                                                             *
