Introduction to Developing Exit Points

A user exit is a point in MSS itself at which control can be transferred to a user-written program and at which MSS can resume control after it has finished. The following types of user exit program are supported:

You must write separate global and task-related user exits. You must write all user exit programs in non-mainframe COBOL. They must not use EXEC CICS commands, and they must use native addressing for pointers.

Note: All COBOL CICS programs that call user exits must be compiled with the NOAMODE compiler directive.
