This is the latest edition of our classic CICS book. The book has demystified and shown me the true light in some areas that have been more than somewhat confusing for many of my more than 25 years in the business. The only prerequisite is that you know how to develop mainframe COBOL programs that process indexed files. But this book is also for experienced CICS programmers. It allows you to learn features you haven't used before, as you need them. It serves as a quick reference to the CICS commands and features you use most on the job.

Today, it no longer makes sense to update a book like this because the mainframe book market has become so small. One reason for this is that IBM has always prided itself on the upward-compatibility of its software. Some highlights follow:. Here are some of our other books on subjects related to CICS. All of them have been and still are the best-sellers on these subjects.
