An unparalleled mixed-language application server

No single programming language is optimal for every application requirement. For this reason, IBM CICS Transaction Server has evolved to become the world’s most powerful mixed language application server.

Applications can share core programming contexts such as security, transactionality, management and monitoring, regardless of the language its components are written in.

This allows developers to create incredible mixed-language applications that include Java EE 7 Full Platform capabilities.

No sticky tape required.
