This is an updated and expanded version of Murach's two best-
selling CICS books. Now, in just one book, IBM mainframe
programmers will learn everything they need to know for
developing interactive programs with CICS. In addition, they
will learn new design and implementation methods for
distributed CICS processing. These methods also make it easy
to convert CICS programs to web applications later on.

"I purchased your CICS book and was productive while other people in the CICS training class were trying to figure out what IBM was saying in the manuals."
