This article describes a method for preserving the data integrity during simultaneous access to the data bases running under the IBM Customer Information Control System (CICS). Data bases can be of any organization for which interface, support and recovery capabilities are provided by CICS. They include, but are not limited to, the Virtual Storage Access Method (VSAM) datasets and Data Language/One (DL/1) data bases. The method solves the problem of data integrity arising when multiple users attempt to modify the same record in a shared data base at the same time and traditional locking techniques are not desirable.
