[archive] Status messages

[Migrated content. Thread originally posted on 07 November 2007]

Can anyone give a detailed explanation of what these status messages mean? We are calling an Acucobol app from a .NET app using wrunnet.dll. Sometimes when it calls the program it will generate a CS_CONT message. Many times after this status is returned the interface hangs and we have to do an IISRESET on the server to get things going again.

Other times we will get CS_RECURSIVE which seems to mean that the resource is busy but it will politely wait and retry the operation. The CS_RECURSIVE status never hangs the interface.

Any ideas about this would be welcome. For 6 months we have had the vendor pointing fingers at the Acucobol side of the interface.
