    ****************************************************************
    WOLA code running in a CICS region drove bboclscc (local Comm
    client connect).  At the time the target WebSphere control
    region is in address space termination.  A piece of storage
    managed by the control region related to cross-memory
    communication was released.  In this window, code driven under
    bboclscc (bboobind and bboopce) took an ABENDS0C4 referencing
    the released storage.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Code has been modified to make a local copy of the static
    information needed to avoid referencing the control region
    managed area (bboocrpc).
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in fix
    pack 8.5.5.13.  Please refer to the Recommended Updates page for
