Error description

  • For time requests originating from a CICS/DB2 application, with
    customization setting LEGACYDB2QUALIFICATION=Y, then it
    can be assumed that the intent of the user is that the DB2 time
    request should receive whatever altered date/time value is
    associated with the CICS region.  In this case, branching off to
    the AGGELIG routine is superfluous.  The logic in AGGLSPC will
    be altered so that CICS/DB2 time requests with
    LEGACYDB2QUALIFICATION=Y set, will bypass the call to AGGELIG,
    and proceed directly to retrieving the HourGlass-altered
    date/time value from the HourGlass CICS support.
