Use this page to create a new Destination Control Table (DCT).
A DCT is a definition of a transient data queue.
INSTALL to install this resource.
ACTIVE to make this resource active.
DELETE to delete this DCT.
COPY to create a new DCT, using the values set on this page as the basis for the new DCT.
DUMP to create and view dump information for this DCT.
APPLY to save your changes to the DCT.
- Specify a name for the DCT (can be up to 60 characters).
- Click this to display the CICS Group group_name.
- Specify a description for the DCT (can be up to 60 characters).
- Choose the destination for transient data:
- Internal Reader
- The internal reader to which CICS applications can direct a JCL jobstream for execution by the JCL engine.
- Check this to enable recovery of the destination in the event of an abnormal termination of either MSS or the transaction
processing the destination. This control only has an effect if you selected Intra in the Type control.
- Specify the name of a remote transient data destination.
- Specify the system or region in which the remote transient data destination resides. The name specified must be the same as
that given in Name in the SysC or Sys62 definition.
- Specify the name of the transaction that is to be automatically initiated when the trigger level specified in Trigger Level
is reached. If no transaction is specified, or Trigger Level is set to 0, some other means must be used to schedule transactions
to read records from the destinations.
- Specify the terminal associated with the transient data destination. The terminal must be defined to MSS.
- Trigger Level
- Specify the number of records to be accumulated before a task is automatically initiated to process them. The maximum number
you can enter is 32767.
Extra-Partition File Location Details
- File Name
- The filename of the extra-partition file.
- File Path
- The pathname of the extra-partition file.
- Path Extension
- The filename extension of the extra-partition file.
- Fileshare Server
- The name of the stand-alone Fileshare server that controls this file, if required.
Extra-Partition File Characteristics
- Record Max
- The maximum length of a record in the extra-partition file.
- Record Min
- The minimum length of a record in the extra-partition file.
- Initial State
- Specifies the initial state of the data set:
- File Type
- Specifies whether the file is line sequential or normal:
- Print Attributes
- Specifies whether or not a form's control character is contained in the first position of each record:
- I/O Type
- Specifies the type of input/output:
- Read Backward
- Specifies the type of access a user wants the data set to have:
- Gives the user exclusive access to add data to the end of a sequential data set.
- Gives the user exclusive access until they have finished using it.
- Gives the user non-exclusive access so that other users can share the data set while it is being used.
SHR is selected and the
enterprise server region is running in a PAC and a DCT is declared to be an
Internal Reader then the Internal Reader queue will be stored in the SOR. Otherwise, it will be stored on disk.
