Usage notes

  • Use the IFABXIT call with an IFAM2 connection to Model 204 only in a CICS environment.
  • Use IFABXIT if the host language application does not require its own abend handler. Using IFABXIT protects the application against a hung CRAM channel in the event of an abend prior to the first functional IFAM2 call.
  • Issue the IFABXIT call as soon as possible after entering the program, after the initial IFCSA call.
  • See CICS abend handling for more information about CICS abend handling in IFAM2.
