CAFC is a comprehensive CICS management system that automatically controls groups of transactions and their corresponding resources. Batch functions can run with no system downtime and no operator involvement.
Operators can build logical lists of CICS resources, then create commands for the list either online or from a batch job. A single command can open or close several – or several hundred – files and process the associated resources. Most DD statements in the JCL job stream are removed, which expedites system startup.
CAFC simplifies and automates CICS commands for files, transactions, and databases, increasing reliability and decreasing errors.
