IBM has published another CICS whitepaper that will be of interest to everyone squeezing more performance out of CICS using the OTE available in V3 – Threadsafety and the CICS Open Transaction Environment: Background, Hints, and Tips, by Tony Fitzgerald and Andy Wright. Tony is a CICS Software Support Specialist with IBM Global Services, and Andy works for the CICS Change Team in Hursley.
The white paper is a nicely written overview of setting up CICS and applications to exploit the new OTE. It is an excellent follow-up to John Tilling’s recent teleconference in which he talked about DB2 and threadsafety. Be sure and check it out – did I mention that this white paper is FREE?
