CICS Fundamentals
Mainframe Training Overview

This class covers the major concepts and facilities for CICS. The CICS management functions, transaction processing and on-line system management are covered in detail. The CICS Application Programming Interface (API) is used to access CICS capabilities including sending /receiving screen maps, reading a VSAM file and handling PF Key and CICS Exception conditions. CICS screen design and implementation using Basic Mapping Support (BMS) are covered in detail.

Hands-on exercises give each student experience in accessing CICS Transactions, writing Programs and accessing Screens.

Mainframe Training Learning Objectives

As a result of the class, the student will be able to -

  • Use several CICS Supplied Transactions
  • Discuss CICS Application Design process
  • Discuss the use of Basic Mapping Services (BMS) to build CICS screens
  • Write programs using the CICS API to access screen and file data
  • Debug CICS Programs using the CICS Execution Diagnostic Facility (EDF)
  • Discuss CICS Resource Definition
  • Discuss CICS Recovery/Restart
  • Describe File and Database Facilities
  • Describe Temporary Storage and Transient Data Queuing Facilities
  • Demonstrate the use of major CICS commands
Mainframe Training Audience

This class is intended for CICS application designers, application programmers, system programmers or operators who need to understand how CICS capabilities and facilities and to write application programs to access CICS

Mainframe Training Prerequisites

Students need a basic knowledge of data processing.
