CICS-Windows - OS390

An Intelligent Manager for Multiple Sessions

CICS-Windows goes beyond the definition of multiple sessions manager, it is a true multiple windows manager for CICS. It allows you to conduct up to nine concurrent CICS sessions and open as many windows simultaneously on one screen. Each window is fully functional and compatible with every type of CICS application. The windows may be thought of as being mini-terminals in that all of the windows have the identical capabilities to the full screen. There is no need for any hardware changes. There is no need to modify any of your existing software. You will not notice any degradation to the system or the user response time. CICS-Windows is easy to learn and easy to use.
