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.
The IBM Redbooks video course – Developing a RESTful Web application for Liberty in CICS provides a step-by-step guide for creating a simple RESTful Java application, then deploying it into WebSphere Liberty running in CICS Transaction Server for z/OS (CICS TS) V5. Its primarily aimed at Java application developers who want to get started with...
JCICS provides a simple object hierarchy for accessing the CICS API from Java, and is similar to the EXEC CICS command API supported for other languages such as COBOL or assembler. Unlike other CICS high level languages, no translation step is necessary during compilation as the underlying EXEC CICS calls are dynamically generated via the...
CICS TS V5.2 enhanced the Liberty JVM server to support the Java Transaction API (JTA) . This enables Java EE applications deployed into CICS to coordinate transactional updates to CICS resources, such as VSAM files, together with XA resources such as a remote DB2 database using a JDBC type 4 driver
CICS TG V9.2 Fixpack 1 provides a new resource adapter called the CICS JEE Inbound Resource Adapter. This Resource Adapter provides the capability to accept COMMAREA based LINK requests from TXSeries CICS applications, invoke a method in an EJB application and return the result back to the CICS application.
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.
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.
This article introduces the concepts of batch processing and looks at how the WebSphere Liberty support for the Batch Applications for the Java Platform standard (JSR 352) can allow online and batch to co-exist to support true 24x7 operations within CICS.
CICS has introduced a choice in how Liberty runs inside CICS: standard-mode and integrated-mode. Read all about it in this blog.
