  • S103 - Debugging CICS Storage Violations Using IPCS

    Session Evaluation

    Storage violations in CICS have been around since CICS itself. The unique way CICS manages storage makes applications run really fast, but still allows for storage to be corrupted. Even with all the storage protections turned on an application can violate itself or other running tasks. This presentation will cover what a storage violation is, how its detected and how you can determine the offending program that overlays storage. Several examples of detection will be covered using a captured storage violation dump and IPCS.

  • S105 - CICS Liberty Profile: Java on the Mainframe in Sixty Minutes

    Session Evaluation

    It's a no brainer. Write it in Java and you can run it on a specialty processor. Run it on a specialty processor and you can save yourself a lot of money. In this presentation we will cut through to the heart of the matter and give you easy to follow but detailed step-by-step instructions on how to write your first Java program running inside of the CICS Liberty profile. We will show you how to navigate the Eclipse environment, tell you all about JCICS, logging, and the CICS internal trace, and show you where to look on the mainframe when things go wrong.
