CICS/TS Application Programming Workshop Training

CICS/TS Application Programming Workshop Training

  • About Course
This five-day, hands-on course explains the functions and facilities of CICS, and teaches how to write efficient application programs using command level CICS. The course combines both tutor tuition and several extensive practical hands-on sessions.<br>On completing this course attendees will have written at least two CICS programs utilising a wide variety of CICS facilities and have run several CICS/TS Application Programming Workshop Training transactions. Attendees will gain an understanding of the need for an application architecture separating presentation from business/data logic, and will become familiar with BMS maps. The course also covers all the commonly used API options, with hands-on exercises.<br><br>This course is also available for one-company, on-site presentations and for live presentation over the Internet, via the Virtual Classroom Environment service.

  • Delegates will learn how to

  • write CICS programs
  • use the required CICS programming facilities
  • separate presentation from business and data logic
  • use the commonly used CICS API options.
  • Pre-requisites
Experience of COBOL, PL/I or Assembler. An understanding of CICS at the conceptual level would be an advantage; this can be obtained by attending the course CICS Transaction Server Concepts & Facilities.
