XA transaction administration

XA transactions are supported when IPIC connections are used.

If communication between an application server and CICS Transaction Gateway is lost and cannot be restored, it might be necessary for an operator to manually back out indoubt units of work. The method for backing out indoubt transactions is different depending on whether the transaction was started using an EXCI connection or an IPIC connection to CICS.

If you attempt to manually resolve an indoubt unit of work, and other resource managers are involved in a transaction, transactional integrity can be compromised.
