A new asynchronous CICS API is available in CICS TS V5.4.

What does it do?

The CICS asynchronous API enables developers to easily incorporate programming logic that follows a ‘parent-child’ model in their applications. This can be used to create more responsive applications, as it provides an simple method to allow transactions to run concurrently and for the parent to coordinate responses from the child transactions.

Language support

Support for multiple languages is provided including the following:

  • Java
  • Assembler
  • COBOL
  • C
  • PL/I
  • Monitoring

    Applications that use this new API benefit from the comprehensive statistics, monitoring, transaction tracking and automatic workflow regulation capabilities provided by CICS TS.
