Like most 40 year-olds, CICS is wiser and smarter than it was in its younger years, but doesn’t look quite as good from the outside as it did as a teenager. System administration or development typically involves interacting with green-screen programs being run inside a 3270 emulation program launched from a PC desktop. However, surrounding the emulated green screen are likely to be any number of other applications such as email clients, a Web browser, and other graphical applications. Users will interact with these using the mouse, metaphors such as drag and drop, copy and paste, and expect features such as integrated help, wizards, support for undo, and other items that make them productive.
