I have some questions regarding timeouts and logoff
functions. The situation is as follows.
I am under the impression that the TESECTION INVALID is
executed when a user performs an action (usually a click)
once the session has timed out. In our case, we would like
to gracefully logoff the user of a timed out SS session on
the mainframe side using our logoff script. However, when
a session times out, our TN3270 screen has not
been "primed" for the next user.
1) How can I "prime" the screens on a timeout SS session
without performing a TEACTION RELEASE (I would prefer to
use the KEEPOPEN parameter) and being able to use our own
2) What occurs when the INVALID section executes in
relation to sessions and connections? Does it
automatically perform a TEACTION RELEASE KEEPOPEN? If so,
what happens on the mainframe side? Is it just 'stuck' on
that screen in which the user timed out on?
