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. Continue reading Link to Liberty in CICS TS V5.3 – what’s the performance cost?
Using TRANCLASS to control workload can improve the performance of asynchronous applications even further. Continue reading Using TRANCLASS with the CICS asynchronous API
This blog shows you how to improve response times with TIMEOUT and NOSUSPEND in asynchronous applications using CICS APIs. Continue reading Improving response times with TIMEOUT and NOSUSPEND in asynchronous applications
Introducing the new FETCH ANY command for the CICS Asynchronous API, which allows parent tasks to fetch the results of any completed child task. Continue reading New FETCH ANY command for the CICS Asynchronous API
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. Continue reading Link to Liberty now available in CICS TS V5.3
With the latest 5.4 open beta release, we're making it easy to monitor and track your asynchronously running tasks. Continue reading Transaction tracking and the CICS Asynchronous API
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. Continue reading Provisioning a CICS & Liberty test environment with the CICS provisioning toolkit
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. Continue reading Support for channels and containers over EXCI – now available in the CICS TS 5.4 open beta
Time to compare asynchronous processing with traditional sequential processing. Spoilers: asynchronous processing is much more efficient! Continue reading Asynchronous vs. sequential processing and the CICS Asynchronous API
Here at CICS HQ we're big fans of an Open Door policy, so much so we use it wherever we can, from being able to talk to anyone about any issues that need to be addressed, to finding out about initiatives all around IBM that look interesting. That policy, however, isn't just internal. We're always... Continue reading CICS TS V5.4 Open Beta, now available!
