Step 6—Create CICS definitions for tableBASE journal files

Create the CICS definition for the tableBASE journal file specified in the customizing DK1T2734.

If you are using the CICS Transaction Server (TS) for z/OS, the CICS journal functions are performed in conjunction with the MVS logger. Allocate the necessary log streams on the MVS logger for the journal file specified in DK1T2734. Define the log stream for the journal file in CICS in the CSD. The log stream no longer needs to be defined in the CICS startup job.

The member DFHCSD99 in TBASE.SRC contains sample instructions for defining the MVS log stream for the CICS journal file.
