CICS TS Resource Builder
Project and Program: Application Architecture Development and Integration
, SHARE Columbus 2022
CICS applications consist of source code that is compiled and CICS resources,
such as TRANSACTIONs, PROGRAMs and FILEs. These elements are typically managed
by separate teams in separate places, using manual steps and causing delays to
coordinate changes. This session describes the new free CICS TS resource builder
command line tool to facilitate configuration as code for application resources.
It enables developers to manage resource definitions in a readable source format
using a modern source control management (SCM) and modern pipeline. It is
designed to run alongside the application build and provides output to be used
in later steps in the pipeline to deploy resources alongside the application.
Developers are now able to change application code and resources together in a
single pull request, giving a consistent and efficient approval and audit
process, enabling applications to be deployed with confidence in minutes rather
