Description

CTG V4 is the latest version of IBM's connector product that runs on the following platforms:

  • Linux/390 software distribution from SuSE V7.0 GA (Kernel 2.2.16) and TurboLinux V6
  • OS/390 Version 2.8, or later (including z/OS V1)
  • AIX® Version 4.3.3
  • Windows 2000
  • Windows NT
  • Solaris 7, Solaris 8
  • HP-UX 11.00

HP-UX and Linux on S/390 are new platforms now supported by the CICS Transaction Gateway.

CTG V4 enables Java, JavaBean, C++, COM and C applications to connect to CICS applications running on any CICS server easily and efficiently. The CICS applications may be written in any supported language as LINKable programs or as 3270 transactions.

V4 enables gateway/server communication over TCP/IP, TCP62, SNA LU6.2, and memory-based protocols. It supports transactional interoperation where the invoking application may initiate a recoverable unit of work which is coordinated with the actions of the target CICS application and the resources it accesses.

Version 4 supports JVM 1.3 on all platforms, but will still tolerate JVM 1.2.2 on platforms where this is available.

New Java sample programs are also provided.

A new implementation of the TCP62 protocol is now supported on all platforms, except on OS/390. It is integrated with the base product and it is not a separately installable feature. Configurations and definitions used with the previous implementation will work with the new implementation transparently.

CTG V4 incorporates the major functions of CICS Transaction Gateway V3 and CICS Universal Client V3, and replaces these products. It provides bindings for the ECI, EPI, and ESI programming interfaces in Java, C++, C, and VisualBasic, and may be used with both IBM and non-IBM application servers. Various RAS enhancements are also included in V4.

The terminal servlet now supports signon-capable terminals on all platforms except OS/390.

The following functions of CICS Transaction Gateway V3 are no longer supported:

  • Operation on the OS/2® platform
  • COBOL, PL/I, and REXX applications
  • The CICSTELD function
  • Novell Netware for SAA®

Platform-specific information for CICS Transaction Gateway is described below.

CTG on Windows

CTG V4.0 will run on the following Windows platforms:

  • Windows NT Server V4.0 with SP6a. (Note: We do not support Windows NT Terminal Server.)
  • Windows 2000 Server + SP1® (with Windows 2000 Terminal Services feature).

For development purposes, the following platforms are also supported:

  • Windows NT Workstation V4.0 with SP6a
  • Windows 2000 Professional with SP1

A single new install package is provided for Windows NT and Windows 2000, with Roaming User support.

On Windows 2000, support is included for the Terminal Services feature, which enables support for multiple attached terminal devices.

Support for the following is not included in Version 4:

  • Operation on the Windows 95 and Windows 98 platforms
  • Execution of Windows 16 bit applications
  • Support for the VisualAge® C++ for Windows compiler
  • DCE on Windows

CTG on Sun Solaris

CTG Version 4 will run on both Sun Solaris 7 (32 bit mode and 64 bit mode) and Sun Solaris 8 (32 bit mode and 64 bit mode).

The SunLink (SNA) protocol on Sun Solaris is not supported, but TCP62 support provides equivalent function to SunLink and should be used as the alternative to SNA.

CTG on Linux for S/390

CTG on Linux for S/390 V3.1.2 was made available for free Internet download on December 22, 2000. This version will be withdrawn from download on June 30, 2001, and will be withdrawn from service on July 31, 2001. It is replaced by CTG V4.0.

CTG V4.0 provides support for TCP62 on the Linux for S/390 platform. This brings CTG on Linux up to the same level as the other UNIX® platforms that CTG supports.

Support has also been added for Turbo Linux.

CTG on Linux for S/390 runs with JDK 1.2.2. It is our intention to support JDK 1.3 in a future release of CTG.

CTG on OS/390

The following are the functional changes that have been made for CTG for OS/390 Version 4.0:

  • New configuration tool options allow the setting of environment variables
  • Some new tracing options are provided
  • Multiple CICS Transaction Gateways can be started using JCL

CTG on OS/390 Version 4 has been available to customers via a Beta Program since March 2001.

CTG on HP-UX

The SNA protocol on HP-UX is not supported, but TCP62 support provides equivalent function.

HP-UK SDK 1.3 does not supply the True Type fonts required for Japanese, Korean, and Simplified Chinese. Customers are advised to either purchase their own True Type fonts from a third-party vendor, or run CTG in English.

CTG on AIX

CTG on AIX requires AIX V4.3.3 with SP25. AIX Communications Server Version 5 is no longer supported.

Beta of the J2EE Support

CTG V4 will provide beta support for J2EE Connector Architecture (JCA). It is the draft industry standard interface which enables Enterprise JavaBeans and Servlets running on a Java application server, and supports the J2EE Connector Architecture to access a variety of Enterprise Information Systems (EIS) with a uniform programming model. These beans and servlets can exploit the connection pooling and transaction management facilities provided by compliant application servers, together with security services provided by the target EIS. The JCA is derived from IBM's Common Connector Framework (CCF) which was introduced with VisualAge for Java, and is supported by VisualAge for Java V3.5.3.

Customers who order CTG V4 may register for the CTG J2EE beta program to obtain early versions of the following two J2EE CICS Connectors:

  • A CICS External Call Interface (ECI) connector that supports all of the J2EE transaction interfaces up to XAResource with one-phase commit only
  • An External Presentation Interface (EPI) Connector which provides access to 3270 applications

Note: CTG V4 on OS/390 only has support for the ECI connector. These connectors are IBM's preferred J2EE connectors for CICS.

To register your interest in this beta program, which runs from July 3, 2001, go to:

Accessibility by People with Disabilities

For CTG on Windows:

The following features support use by people with disabilities:

  • Operation by keyboard alone
  • Optional font enlargement and high-contrast display settings
  • Screen readers and screen magnifiers tested for use by people with visual impairment
  • Speech recognition products tested for use by people with mobility impairment
  • Optional display of audio alerts for people with hearing impairment

Euro Currency

This program is EuroReady.

For more information on the implications of the euro, visit the IBM euro Web site at:

EuroReady Products

IBM considers an IBM product to be EuroReady if the product, when used in accordance with its associated documentation, is capable of correctly processing monetary data in the euro denomination and of respecting the euro currency formatting conventions (including the euro sign). This assumes that all other products (for example, hardware, software, and firmware) that are used with this product are also EuroReady. IBM hardware products that are EuroReady may or may not have an engraved euro sign key on their keyboards.

Currently, EuroReady status applies primarily to IBM products specific to the EMU countries. Products that are not specific to these countries are deemed to be "not ready" for euro unless otherwise stated in the product's country-specific specifications.

IBM Hardware Ready

IBM supplies certain IBM products which include third-party software (pre-loaded or not) and/or third-party attached hardware. In these instances, IBM is not in a position to assert that these third-party products are, in themselves, EuroReady. Therefore, such IBM products will be designated as Hardware ready.

EuroReady Solutions

IBM considers a solution to be EuroReady when the solution providers have:

  • Analyzed the euro requirements, including the need to comply with relevant EC rules
  • Built in appropriate function

and can clearly demonstrate this by:

  • Detailing euro related requirements
  • Describing how these will be implemented in the solution
  • Declaring when the implementation will be generally available

The euro capabilities of a EuroReady solution will be clearly identified as features of the solution specification, as described in the contracts document.

Product Positioning

Many enterprises use multi-tiered configurations to implement e-business applications which serve their customers as end users. These configurations typically consist of three physical tiers made up of the end-user browser, a Web server/Web application server, and a back-end EIS, although sometimes additional tiers are also used. The purpose of CTG is to provide efficient integration of middle-tier application servers with CICS-based EISs. It achieves this by providing a multi-user gateway which supports programming interfaces on the same tier as the Web application server, for use by Web applications in Java and other languages. Customers may, therefore, use existing assets and skills in building middle-tier solutions, in combination with their enterprise CICS systems, to achieve effective e-business solutions. CTG also provides an excellent environment for customers wishing to gain familiarity with Java programming, prior to using this in the host CICS environment.

CTG V4 enables customers to implement robust and efficient end-to-end configurations and, by supporting major server platforms, provides considerable flexibility in the configurations which may be adopted. It also enables customers to change configurations without modifying applications when operational reasons require this or make it desirable, for example to increase the scalability of a solution. The option to deploy CTG V4 on OS/390 or z/OS, supporting Web applications locally on OS/390 or z/OS, or remotely on a physical middle-tier server, provides a configuration which enables high scalability to be achieved and has been tested at transaction rates in excess of 1,000 transactions per second.

CTG V4 contains a superset of the functions offered in CICS Universal Clients V3.1 and may be used to support multi-user integration applications written in C, C++, Visual Basic, and as COM objects.

It may be deployed in non-Java environments, on distributed platforms, and offers transparent migration for customer applications which are currently using CICS Universal Clients V3.1.
