Ask your CICS system administrator to set up the base application. Follow the procedure in Installing and setting up the base application in the CICS Transaction Server documentation.
Note: You do not need to configure web service support for this scenario.
Pay special attention to the following steps in the base application section of the documentation:
  • Ensure that SDFHLOAD is in your DFHRPL concatenation to install the CICS sample applications.
  • Create and define the two VSAM data sets.
  • Create TRANSACTION definitions for the two user interface transactions, ECFG, and EGUI.
  • Run ECFG to change any defaults for the application configuration.


The sample application is now configured on CICS.
