CICS TS for System Programmers

The “CICS for System Programmers” is geared towards technical staff new to the CICS environment. In this course, the participant will learn how a CICS system is put together: resource definitions, system utilities both online and offline, System Initialization tables, CICS JCL, system datasets are subjects covered in depth in this course. We also discuss CICS storage management, CICS communications and CICS customization. At the end of this class, the attendee will have been exposed to almost everything that goes on in a CICS address space. The material is current to CICS TS V5.2.
The student should have some knowledge of TSO/ISPF will help during some exercises; the student will be preparing and submitting a CICS address space from scratch so some JCL expertise will most definitely be an asset. Although not essential, some programming experience will be helpful to successfully complete the debugging exercises.
