For further details, refer to CICS TS Intercommunication Guide Version 2 Release 2.
For APPC sessions, you can use the MODENAME option of the CICS DEFINE SESSIONS
command to identify a VTAM logmode entry that in turn identifies the required entry in the
VTAM class-of-service table. Every modename that you supply, when you define a group of
APPC sessions to CICS, must be matched by a VTAM LOGMODE name. All that is required
in the VTAM LOGMODE table are entries of the following form:
MODEENT LOGMODE=modename
MODEEND
An entry is also required for the LU services manager modeset (SNASVCMG):
MODEENT LOGMODE=SNASVCMG
MODEEND
If you plan to use autoinstall for single-session APPC terminals, additional information is
required in the MODEENT entry. For programming information about coding the VTAM
LOGON mode table, see the CICS Transaction Server for z/OS V2.3 CICS Customization
Guide.
CICS definitions
The CICS region name we use is CICSPS8K and it is directly connected to the same DB2
subsystem that one of the IMS regions will use. The other IMS region will connect to a
different DB2.
Add CICS APPC support
Define a CICS CONNection and a CICS SESSion to a CICS group of your choice. This
example shows the definitions being created by the CICS Resource Definition Online method
using the CICS transaction CEDA. You can also use the CICS batch utility DFHCSDUP to
create the same definitions.
When you have completed the definitions you will have to ADD your groupname to the CICS1
grplist. This will install and activate your new definitions the next time you start CICS. To
avoid a CICS restart, you can also issue a CEDA INSTALL GROUP(groupname) in order to
activate your definitions dynamically.
