CICS has supported REXX for a bit now, but The Master Terminal is reporting that now there is a supportpac (CA1S) available to allow another type of scripting – PHP. PHP is a very popular scripting language for web sites (maybe the most popular scripting language), so it is great to see it being welcomed into the CICS environment.

When you think about it, it is amazing how CICS is where the old meets the new – CICS supports IP as well as VTAM, HTML as well as BMS, and COBOL, PL/I, and Assembler as well as C++, Java, and now PHP.
