CICS initialization and shutdown

Under normal circumstances, tableBASE is started automatically on CICS initialization, via the PLT (PLTSI)—see the tableBASE Installation Guide, in the “Installing the CICS Interface option” procedure, for further information.

When a CICS region is terminated normally, tableBASE termination within the region is handled by the program DK1TSHUT, via the PLT (PLTSD). If a user issues an emergency shutdown of a CICS region, PLTSD is not executed, and tableBASE termination is handled by DK1TCRM. Normal region termination, handled by DK1TSHUT via the PLTSD, will ensure that all transactions are completed before proceeding with tableBASE termination for the region.
