TXSeries allow users to classify the transaction and control the number of simultaneous or parallel execution of transactions belonging to a group. For example, in a CICS region shared between HR and finance team in an organization, the applications of both the teams can be classified into different groups and the number of maximum parallel executions of the transactions of different groups can be controlled.
As of TXSeries 7.1, the grouping of transactions can be achieved by using TCLASS. The number of TClass that can be defined in a region is restricted to 10. That is, the transaction has to be classified within the 10 predefined groups or classes in a region numbered from 1 to 10. This can be a limitation if the number of transaction groups needs to be more than 10. TXSeries for Multiplatforms v8.1 Open Beta introduces TRANCLASS which overcomes this restriction and also enables users to define any customized and meaningful name to the transaction classification through TRANCLASS keys with maximum of 8 character length instead of numbers
Existing applications using TCLASS APIs can work without modifications. Stay tuned for more information on using TRANCLASS with TXSeries.
