After a hectic schedule, I am just relaxing taking coffee, and listing to my Mind Machine. I decided to write some tough CICS questions. I am giving these in 3 sets, so you can greatly benefit with them.

Q4) What is the use of CEDF?
We can use “CEDF” for execution diagnostic messages: Type==> CEDF aaaa here, aaaa-terminal id (such as, Test region), press then, give application transaction-id. Also, this can be achieved by ‘Xpediter” setup
Q5) What is the best use of Handle Abend?
“Handle Abend” we can use to intercept abnormal termination of the program. But, this is different from “Handel condition”. which intercepts only abnormal condition.
