How to determine if is it necessary to recycle/refresh CICS when installing new databases for CODE-1 Plus

It is not necessary to recycle CICS after installing the CODE-1 Plus databases.  It is acceptable to close/disable the datasets associated with the CODE-1 Plus databases, perform your maintenance, and then re-open/enable the datasets. The cleanest method is to install using new dataset names so it is only necessary to change the name when you disable/enable the datasets.  If you install into the same datasets, it is a little more difficult in that the databases would have to be kept down while the maintenance is done, incurring a longer period when the applications using them are inoperative.
