1 © GFI [ THE e -PROCESS COMPANY ] CSKL - CICS Serves, Knowing Legacy (is still making most profit for the organization). How Nat System switched from APPC over SNA to sockets over TCP/IP for the communication between client (Windows application) and server (CICS on z/OS), using the IBM-provided CSKL listener transaction by implementing a "child server" process, thereby leveraging its original three- tiered separation-of-concern approach. Advantages and drawbacks of short-living TCP connections used in this approach. Set-up and configuration of the CSKL.

13 © GFI [ THE e -PROCESS COMPANY ] Short-living TCP connections +Perfect match for short-living transactions +Eliminates effect of user think-time +Great for automatic fail-over +Server is stateless -Server is stateless -Overhead of connection set-up -TIME_WAIT
