Session Description:

Part 1 presented by Leigh Compton

CICS's current support for Java Applications - CICS is an unparalleled mixed language application server and as such has been embracing new languages and technologies as appropriate. Recent investments in Java enable you to do more with your CICS application platform than ever before. Java is an extremely popular language for authoring applications which can run in many different environments and now CICS fully supports Java EE 8, Jakarta EE 8, and Spring Boot, making it easier to develop and deploy Java applications into CICS. This session will provide an overview of CICS's current support for Java applications in the form of development tooling and runtimes.

Part 2 presented by Brian Ross

Privakey; Connecting CICS to the Future - The mainframe, COBOL and CICS are the underlying framework for countless transactions, quietly processing millions upon millions of records a second. However, what happens when something goes wrong? Exceptions happen – bad data, rules exceptions and work-flow requirements often require human interaction. Vicom Infinity (experts in all things IBM) and Privakey (leaders in the emerging category of Transaction Intent Verification) created the CICS to Privakey Gateway to facilitate seamless, user-friendly remediation of these exceptions. There were countless IBM and CICS tools available to us to facilitate the development of this gateway. In this talk we will discuss the options considered, the approach we ultimately chose and the challenges we faced along the way.
