Before creating CICS® transports

To use a CICS® transport in your tests in HCL OneTest API, you must configure HCL OneTest API to use CICS® Transaction Gateway JAR files.

Note: You do not require the CICS® Transaction Gateway JAR files if you intend to utilize an IPIC (IP Interconnectivity) transport connection to your CICS server and not use a CICS Transaction Gateway. However, the Test Transport displays a message that the CICS® Transaction Gateway transport is not available, and that you must use IPIC.

You must use Library Manager to configure the CICS® Transaction Gateway JAR files.

You must set up the following JAR files by using Library Manager:
  • ctgclient.jar
  • ctgserver.jar
You can find the JAR files in the CICS® Transaction Gateway installation folder, within the classes sub folder.
Note: Make sure that the version of the ctgclient.jar and ctgserver.jar files matches that of the CICS Transaction Gateway that you want to use. JAR files from a later version of a CICS Transaction Gateway do not work with HCL OneTest API.
