CICS/TS 4.1 Announcement Letter

Compete, comply, and control. Those are the themes behind the new release of CICS, which IBM plans to have available starting June 26, 2009. Until then, there is an open beta that can be downloaded and installed; it can be used until July 31, 2009.

Some of the new features that I saw that I thought were big include:

  • CICS Explorer
  • Application bundles (grouping logically related resource definitions)
  • Support for Java 6
  • Use of z/OS Systems Service XML parser (meaning that parsing could be offloaded to a zAAP)
