CICS interface

To tableBASE, CICS is a single region or task. Only one copy of a table can be open in a region at any time. This copy of the table will be shared by all users (transactions). Read the section Online and multitasking environment considerations before using tableBASE in a CICS environment.

The user should understand the following:

  • tableBASE manages tables in-memory, and consequently, relies on the user to store (ST) any updated tables.
  • If for any reason the CICS region abends or comes down, any table updates not yet stored are lost.
