    This fix adds support to CICS Batch Application Control
    to run with CICS TS V5.4
    
    The following documentation change will be made to the
    CICS BAC User's Guide as described below:
    
    Documentation changes to the CICS TS 5.4 Knowledge Center
    ---------------------------------------------------------
    In the CICS TS 5.4 Knowledge Center;
    CICS Batch Application Control for z/OS V1.1.1;
    User Guide ->
    Implementation and customization ->
    Setting up and starting the CICS component ->
    Preparing CICS regions for CICS BAC ->
    CICS BAC program and mapset definitions;
    in the notes below Figure 4 "CEDA commands to define the CBK
    programs and mapset in your CSD":
    
    Additional text is added to note 1.
    At the end of the second sentence, add the following text:
    
    "or 71 if you are installing CICS BAC in a CICS TS 5.4 region."
    
    The note should now read:
    
    1. In the CEDA commands shown in Figure 4, replace cbkgroup with
    any character string allowed by the CEDA transaction that meets
    your installation standards. Replace the nn in the program names
    CBKFSXnn and CBKSPXnn with 53 if you are installing CICS BAC in
    a CICS TS 1.3 region; 62 if you are installing CICS BAC in a
    CICS TS 2.2 region; 63 if you are installing CICS BAC in a CICS
    TS 2.3 region; 64 if you are installing CICS BAC in a CICS TS
    3.1 region; 65 if you are installing CICS BAC in a CICS TS 3.2
    region; 66 if you are installing CICS BAC in a CICS TS 4.1
    region; 67 if you are installing CICS BAC in a CICS TS 4.2
    region; 68 if you are installing CICS BAC in a CICS TS 5.1
    region; 69 if you are installing CICS BAC in a CICS TS 5.2
    region; 70 if you are installing CICS BAC in a CICS TS 5.3
    region; or 71 if you are installing CICS BAC in a CICS TS 5.4
    region.  You can also define the programs for all these CICS
    releases if you want to.
    
    1. This PTF adds 2 new load modules to the SCBKLOAD library.
       Before applying the PTF you should ensure that the SCBKLOAD
       library has at least 18 directory blocks.
    
    2. There are two new programs CBKFSX71 and CBKSPX71 for which
       program definitions are required in the CICS region where
       CICS BAC runs.
       The resource definitions for these programs are in member
       CBKPROGS in the SCBKSAMP library.  They are marked with the
       APAR number PI81758.
       Please ensure that you add these additional resource
       definitions to your CICS system.
       Although these new programs and definitions are only
       required in a CICS TS 5.4 environment, you are advised to
       add the definitions to CICS regions running other releases
       of CICS TS so that they will be available if and when you
       migrate the regions to CICS TS 5.4.
    

Problem conclusion

  • CICS Batch Application Control base code has been enhanced to
    run with CICS TS V5.4.
