Issue/Introduction



Are there any issues or PTFs related to running IDMSDC Cobol programs using Cobol release 6 or higher?

Environment

Release: IDADSO00100-18.5-ADS-for CA-IDMS
Component:

Resolution

For Cobol release 5 and higher PTFs see Knowledge article 32516.

Specific to release 6 or higher, our experience with clients running LE Cobol release 6 (IDMS-DC online programs running in CV) has shown that it will make more use of the XA REENTRANT POOL (additional runtime modules loaded) and that we recommend increasing XA REENTRANT POOL by 20% when moving to Cobol 6 or later and then monitor usage to see if any more may be needed.
