Introduction:

TPX 5.2 introduced the ability to use TPX Batch to update the Application Characteristics Table (ACT).

Environment:
TPX 5.4
Instructions:

This example will add application 'CCCCCCCC' to ACT 'ACTNEW'.

  • If ACTNEW does not already exist, it will be created.

Then use UPDATE to set the specific application values.

//SYSIN DD *
C
C ADD to ACT C ADD ACTAPPL (ACTNEW CCCCCCCC) UPDATE ACTAPPL (ACTNEW CCCCCCCC(ACTSESS(SESSIDC) ACTKEY (04 )) )

Alternatively, you can copy an existing ACT Session to create one or more new sessions in the same or another ACT.

//SYSIN DD *
C
C COPY to ACT ACTGV01 Session CICSB to new sessions
C
COPY ACTAPPL ACTGV01 CICSB TO (ACTGV02 CICSA ACTGV02 CICSB ACTGV02 CICSC)
