CICS to IDMS PDAT eliminated with TCPIP

CICS to IDMS PDAT eliminated with TCPIP

In case anyone is interested.

We had a situation where we were using lights out dumb 3270 terminals to allow UCF PDAT data transfer between CICS and IDMS and back to CICS invoked from a non-3270 CICS transaction. As we did not want to continue to rely on the failing old terminals, we replaced the UCF PDAT transfer process with TCP/IP.

TCP/IP socket transfer programs were written both for CICS and IDMS. The resulting processes incurred about the same amount of overhead as the replaced UCF PDAT process. We feel that we could have reduced the overhead if we had coded for persistant port connections.

Our experience with the IDMS TCP/IP socket interface was very positive and we were able to establish communications with CICS easily.

The IDMS program were written in ADSO and the CICS program in COBOL.
