How does the CICS asynchronous API perform?

Using the CICS asychronous API enables you to make the most of asynchronous processing in a flexible, supported way – but how does the API's RUN TRANSID command compare to pre-existing alternatives such as START? EXEC CICS RUN TRANSID vs. EXEC CICS START When it comes to starting other transactions, the START command is the...

Using CICS policy to restrict the number of asynchronous child tasks

The CICS asynchronous API provides a simple, supported way to improve efficiency and reduce response times via asynchronous processing. For system administrators, the API affords a great opportunity to improve performance, and using CICS policy, you can gain even finer control over the the parent and child tasks in your system. CICS policy CICS policy...

Introducing the New CICS Asynchronous API!

This article explores the benefits of asynchronous programming patterns in CICS and the new asynchronous API commands that have been added in the CICS TS V5.4 open beta. Find out how CICS applications can reduce their overall response times with a supported set of commands, also reducing the management efforts, complexity and risk associated with...
