The DevTest CICS Agent is a z/OS CICS resident agent that provides functions to support the VSE. The agent is implemented as a combination of long-running task TKOA and CICS exits XPCREQ, XPCREQC, XEIIN, and XEIOUT. The agent can be activated automatically through the CICS PLT, or manually through the TKOI transaction to install and TKOR transaction to remove. The only configuration that is required is the location of the DevTest LPAR Agent.
The following graphic shows the components of the DevTest LPAR Agent and DevTest CICS Agent.
