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...
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...
The 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 allows for workloads to run concurrently.
Using TRANCLASS to control workload can improve the performance of asynchronous applications even further.
This blog shows you how to improve response times with TIMEOUT and NOSUSPEND in asynchronous applications using CICS APIs.
Introducing the new FETCH ANY command for the CICS Asynchronous API, which allows parent tasks to fetch the results of any completed child task.
With the latest 5.4 open beta release, we're making it easy to monitor and track your asynchronously running tasks.
Time to compare asynchronous processing with traditional sequential processing. Spoilers: asynchronous processing is much more efficient!
Get straight down to business with the new CICS asynchronous API commands in the open beta. We develop a very simple pair of programs to demonstrate the passing of information from a parent to a child program using the new functionality. Full source code is available on GitHub!
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...
