This section describes how to use the CICS PROGRAM application.

This application shows a scrollable list of application programs by name, identifies the application program type, and displays the current status of each program.

Enter any of the following one- or two-character line commands on the line of the program that you want to change:

Line command

Description

P

issues the /STOP PROGRAM command to stop the execution of the program

S

issues the /START PROGRAM command to start the program, which makes it available for scheduling in the IMS regions

L

issues the /LOCK PROGRAM command to stop the scheduling of the program

U

issues the /UNLOCK PROGRAM command to free a program previously locked by the /LOCK command

The following table contains the field descriptions for the PROGRAM application:

Field name

Description

PROGRAM

one- to eight-character name of the program

TYPE

type of application program, which can be

  • FP U: Fast Path utility

  • FP N: nonmessage-driven Fast Path application program

  • FP M: message-driven Fast Path application program

  • BMP: batch message processing program

  • TP: message processing program (MPP)

STATUS

current status of the application program, which can be as follows:

  • STARTED: The program is available.

  • PROGRAM STOPPED: The program is stopped because /STOP PROGRAM was issued.

  • PROGRAM LOCKED: the program is locked because /LOCK PROGRAM was issued.

  • DATABASE STOPPED: A database that is used by the PSB is stopped.

  • PROGRAM NOT INITIALIZED: No PSB was found for the program during IMS initialization.

Exceptions off (X OFF) is the default. All programs are displayed, including those that are an exception to normal operation. If X ON is entered in the primary command line, only the programs in an exception to normal operation are shown. The exception status can be

  • PROGRAM STOPPED

  • PROGRAM LOCKED

  • DATAB
