CICS/ESA Command Level Programming

This course provides an introduction to IBM's CICS command level programming interface. All primary CICS commands are covered in this course. This course consists of a combination of lecture and programming workshops, using the COBOL command level interface. By the end of this course, the student will have an excellent understanding of what can be done from a CICS program and will be prepared to write and maintain CICS command level programs.
An understanding of the mainframe environment is assumed (familiarity with TSO/ISPF, JCL, compiling and linking programs, etc.). It is assumed that the student knows COBOL, but no CICS programming experience is necessary.
