    Unanswered: update table out of uow

    Is it possible to have an operation out of the unit of work?

    I need to update a table regardless of the result of the whole uow. If, for any reason, I have to roll back, that update must be persistent.

    I believe that you can START a new CICS tran asynchronously from your main program (passing the data needed to make the update), which will have a different unit of work. I did this about 10 years ago. Of course, if you are not using CICS in your main program, that may not very be convenient.

    I cannot use any CICS sentences in my "subprogram"; only the main program is allowed to.

    My question was more directed to DB/2, because I think I heard something like you can put a table out of the scope of the unit of work.
