The IBM® CICS® Transaction Server
for z/OS® (CICS TS) V5.1 open beta
The combination of new Application, Platform, and Policy definitions will greatly simplify the assembly, deployment, and life-cycle management of CICS applications, delivering many of the characteristics found in private-cloud systems. CICS TS V5.1 open beta gives you the opportunity to explore the concept of a cloud-style CICS deployment in your own environment.
Support has been added for a fast and lightweight Java web container, built on WebSphere Application Server Liberty profile technology, which implements the Java Servlet and JavaServer Pages (JSP) specifications, enabling you to co-locate your web and business applications.
The open beta contains a wide range of foundational improvements, including support for Java 7 and further 64 bit exploitation. Event processing is expanded by new WRITE OPERATOR and message capture points, and a new capability to emit a single event to multiple adapters.
The CICS-WebSphere MQ dynamic program link (DPL) bridge has been enhanced to pass data using containers, increasing the amount of data that can be passed and broadening the solutions in which it can be used.
CICS TS V5.1 open beta also introduces a number of enhancements to make operations easier and more transparent:
The IBM CICS Explorer V5.1 open beta, included with the CICS TS V5.1 open beta, has been updated to include support for the new and enhanced capabilities of this CICS TS deliverable.
Cloud computing is transforming the way people think about information technology. CICS TS V5.1 open beta now introduces cloud-style development, deployment, and operations to the CICS platform, giving you the opportunity to evaluate these capabilities, determine their relevance to your enterprise, and provide feedback to IBM on the concept and implementation.
CICS TS V5.1 open beta will be
