I haven't any practical experience of CICS or BMS. I want to work through a BMS tutorial, but I need to start CICS. How do I actually do that? I know how to log on to TSO, start ISPF and create a cobol program, that's about it. Thanks
Basically - you do not. Someone else does - DB group, operators or whoever. Look at SDSF (or your shop's equivalent) and you should see CICS - or several CICS - running. You need to find out which one you should be using for your self-education.
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly. Regards Nic
