Customer Information Control System (CICS) is a transaction server that runs primarily on IBM mainframe systems under z/OS and z/VSE.
IBM CICS Transaction Gateway provides secure access to CICS from Java, Java EE,.NET Framework, C and C++ applications, using Internet protocols (for example TCP/IP).
International Business Machines Corporation (commonly referred to as IBM) is an American multinational technology and consulting corporation, with headquarters in Armonk, New York.
IBM DB2 is a family of database server products developed by IBM.
IBM Information Management System (IMS) is a joint hierarchical database and information management system with extensive transaction processing capabilities.
IBM mainframes are large computer systems produced by IBM from 1952 to the present.
IBM System z (officially "IBM z Systems") is a family name used by IBM for all of its mainframe computers.
IBM WebSphere refers to a brand of computer software products in the genre of enterprise software known as "application and integration middleware".
An independent software vendor (ISV) is an organization specializing in making or selling software, designed for mass or niche markets.
In computing, input/output or I/O (or, informally, io or IO) is the communication between an information processing system, such as a computer, and the outside world, possibly a human or another information processing system.
The Integrated Facility for Linux (IFL) is an IBM mainframe and Power Systems processor dedicated to running the Linux operating system.
Java is a set of several computer software and specifications developed by Sun Microsystems, later acquired by Oracle Corporation, that provides a system for developing application software and deploying it in a cross-platform computing environment.
Microcode is a layer of hardware-level instructions that implement higher-level machine code instructions or internal state machine sequencing in many digital processing elements.
A million service units (MSU) is a measurement of the amount of processing work a computer can perform in one hour.
UNIX System Services (USS) is a required, included component of z/OS.
In IBM mainframes, Workload Manager (WLM) is a base component of MVS/ESA mainframe operating system, and its successors up to and including z/OS.
vs.) Extensible Markup Language (XML) is a markup language that defines a set of rules for encoding documents in a format which is both human-readable and machine-readable. It is defined by the W3C's XML 1.0 Specification and by several other related specifications, all of which are free open standards. The design goals of XML emphasize simplicity, generality and usability across the Internet. It is a textual data format with strong support via Unicode for different human languages. Although the design of XML focuses on documents, it is widely used for the representation of arbitrary data structures such as those used in web services. Several schema systems exist to aid in the definition of XML-based languages, while many application programming interfaces (APIs) have been developed to aid the processing of XML data.
The IBM System z Application Assist Processor (zAAP), previously known as the zSeries Application Assist Processor, is a mainframe processor introduced by IBM in 2004.
z/OS is a 64-bit operating system for IBM mainframes, produced by IBM.
In IBM System z9 (and successor) mainframes, the System z Integrated Information Processor (zIIP) is a special purpose processor.
