Thank you all very much for your comments. It is very helpful to hear what others are doing and how they are handling things! "Schaefer P.

We have successfully completed user testing and we are going live this weekend. In case there is some misunderstanding, CICS/400 works GREAT. While there was some initial discussion regarding a "Phase-2" for conversion to "Native-400", that direction is not being actively staffed or planned at this time. The reason is the usual "Don't fix what isn't broken". Since the VSAM transparency via DB2/400 works well and everything is running so fast, some discovery will be required to assess the benefits of continuing with Phase-2. Right now CICS/400 seems to be the best solution for operating the converted applications.
