    This IBM® Redbooks® publication describes IBM TXSeries® for Multiplatforms, which is the premier IBM distributed transaction processing software for business-critical applications. Before describing distributed transaction processing in general, we introduce the most recent version of TXSeries for Multiplatforms. We focus on the following areas:

    • The technical value of TXSeries for Multiplatforms
    • New features in TXSeries for Multiplatforms
    • Core components of TXSeries
    • Common TXSeries deployment scenarios
    • Deployment, development, and administrative choices
    • Technical considerations

    It also demonstrates enterprise integration with products, such as relational database management system (RDBMS), IBM WebSphere® MQ, and IBM WebSphere Application Server. In addition, it describes system customization, reviewing several features, such as capacity planning, backup and recovery, and high availability (HA).

    We describe troubleshooting in TXSeries. We also provide details about migration from version to version for TXSeries. A migration checklist is included.

    We demonstrate a sample application that we created, called BigBlueBank, its installation, and the server-side and client-side programs. Other topics in this book include application development and system administration considerations.

    This book describes distributed IBM Customer Information Control System (IBM CICS®) solutions, and how best to develop distributed CICS applications.
