Oracle Tuxedo Application Runtime for CICS and Batch 12c Release 1 (12.1.1)
This topic contains the following sections:
Oracle Tuxedo Application Runtime for CICS and Batch supports IBM mainframe applications to be rehosted to Oracle Tuxedo. It provides a combination of APIs and services that allows OLTP and Batch mainframe applications to run unchanged, preserving years of business logic and data investment. It protects application users from change by supporting standard 3270 terminal emulators. It also provides familiar APIs and functions that developers use in their mainframe applications.
The result is the ability to quickly (and with low risk), migrate legacy mainframe applications to open systems running COBOL and C/C++ application server. This provides substantial cost savings and greater flexibility.

When you upgrade Oracle Tuxedo Application Runtime for CICS and Batch from an older release to a newer release, you must rerun the CICS Preprocessor against the CICS COBOL programs, and then recompile the COBOL programs.
If upgrading from release 188.8.131.52 or before, you must ensure the
ARTADM server is configured in CICS Runtime.
$KIXDIR/include/msgflds32is changed from 30002700 to 30001100.
ARTSRMare required for many enhancements which are introduced in previous 12.1.1 rolling patches. For more information, see and in .
The following sections describe the limitations and known issues with Oracle Tuxedo Application Runtime for CICS and Batch.
CICS SEND MAPand
Genericoptions for CICS commands are not supported in File-to-File scenarios when using COBOL-IT.
ISC_ENABLE=YESis set, ART CICS cannot validate
LUNAMEacross multi-CICS regions.
COB_ENABLE_XAbefore booting up
PROGRAM-IDis the same as the COBOL program name and different COBOL programs must define different
DFHCICSAis assumed; there is no timeout mechanism in that profile.
SENDcommand is not supported.
SEND CONFIRM/ISSUE CONFIRMATIONcommands must be added to the server and client code respectively in a transactional conversation.
SYNCPOINTin internal ART CICS and TMA-based ART CICS are different; these two kinds of sync level conversation cannot occur in the same transaction.
tpreturn(), however, in scenario 2 and 4, TMA-based ART CICS can only map
FREE) in sync level 0 and
SEND CONFIRMin sync level 2 to
tpreturn(), as a result, all subsequent operations in user’s code are lost.
SEND CONFIRM/ISSUE CONFIRMATIONis not supported except in scenarios 3 and 4.
