CICS application programming

In this workshop, participants get an overview of the different CICS TS (Customer Information Control System Transaction Server) components which are related to the building of applications. By using this information and by doing exercises participants become familiar with the different aspects of working in a CICS environment. Message processing, data management, the use of different communication options and synchronisation are also discussed.

At the end of this course delegates will be able to write complete programs in COBOL or PL/1 using CICS 'command level' instructions.


No public sessions are currently scheduled. We will be pleased to set up an on-site course or to schedule an extra public session (in case of a sufficient number of candidates). Interested ? Please contact ABIS.

Intended for

Application programmers who need to develop CICS applications using 'command level' instructions.


The students should be experienced in COBOL (see COBOL programming - part 1) or PL/I (see PL/I programming: fundamentals course). No knowledge of CICS is required.

Main topics

awesome (, )
La fin du cours s'est accélérée à cause du manque du temps et donc un mangue d'examples pratiques (, )
impeccable (, )
Zeer goed. Voor mij mocht het iets technischer (systeem), maar het was tenslotte Cics-programmatie, dus geen klachten. (, )
Uitstekende cursus, komt tegemoed aan de verwachtingen. (, )
Très bien. Bien expliqué et professeur très patient. (, )
Vond de cursus heel goed en leerrijk. (, )
Uitstekend gegeven en goede verhouding tussen theorie en praktijk (, )
Bien mais un peu difficile parce qu'il faut aller vite. Difficulté au niveau des noms des programmes => bcp de temps perdu à ce niveau. (, )
Goed, maar soms te weinig tijd om alles goed door te hebbben en te verwerken (, )
