Migration to VSE/ESA 2.4 and CICS Transaction Server for VSE/ESA 1.1

An IBM Redbooks publication


This IBM Redbooks publication is intended for VSE customers and IBM technical personnel responsible for planning and migrating to VSE/ESA 2.4 and the CICS Transaction Server for VSE/ESA 1.1 (CICS TS 1.1).

CICS has significantly changed in this new release. CICS TS 1.1 provides functions to improve application programming, system programming, system management, and data security and availability. CICS internal security has been removed, thus requiring the use of an external security manager if security is needed.

This book will help you to understand the impact of migrating to CICS TS 1.1. It will also help you to install and configure the new CICS TS 1.1 by providing detailed guidance and samples for the changes that you have to perform.

You will understand the new features and their potential, the impact of the removal of obsolete functions, and the possibilities of CICS TS 1.1 and CICS for VSE/ESA 2.3 coexistence. You will learn about security and performance issues, and samples are provided for first-level problem determination through the use of dumps or trace tools.
