Infinite timeout when an AS400 CL Program is waiting for a user response RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have a BizTalk application in charge of calling a CL program hosted on an AS400.

    I have a DB2 storedprocedure acting as a wrapper for my CL program. It works fine.

    The CL program provided by a third party vendor contains an error management where an interactive user must give an answer like Ignore, Retry, ...

    It means that sometimes, BizTalk is not receiving a response from this program because the CL program is waiting for a user input. As soon as the program ends, BizTalk receives the response.

    But what sounds strange is that BizTalk is waiting indefinitely the response from DB2 even if the TimeOut is set to the default value of 30 secs.

    Is it a normal behaviour?
