IBM® CICS® Transaction Server for z/OS® Version 4.1 made it possible to support event processing for business applications. Event processing can help the business community to gain insight into how their business processes are performing. Furthermore, event processing can help companies take advantage of new business opportunities by providing a non-invasive methodology for enhancing existing business applications.

With the potential offered by event processing support, CICS Transaction Server for z/OS Version 4.2 enhances this capability with a number of new features. This IBM Redpapers™ publication describes several of the most significant of these new features, such as assured event emission, separate event processing (EP) adapters, and search facilities to help you understand the effect of application changes.
