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.
This article discusses how CICS TS V5.4 utilises the z/OS WLM health API (IWM4HLTH) as a means of controlling the flow of work into a CICS region at startup and shutdown.
In this article the performance costs when linking to a Java application in a Liberty JVM server are compared to the costs of using an OSGi JVM server or a standard CICS COBOL program.
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.
In this article we'll look at how you can prepare your Java EE application, running in a Liberty JVM server, to be invoked from any CICS program.
With the latest 5.4 open beta release, we're making it easy to monitor and track your asynchronously running tasks.
This blog post introduces the new features in the CICS provisioning toolkit, such as the ability to quickly provision different CICS configurations, by building and provisioning images.
The EXCI is an API that enables applications running outside of CICS in z/OS to link to a CICS application and exchange data. This new enhancement provides a mechanism to exchange large volumes of structured parameter data.
