CA Gen will soon support ECI v2 as one of the middleware choices for Gen C clients (GUI, COM Proxy and C Proxy) to communicate with Gen COBOL servers on CICS. ECI v2 provides the ability to send more than 32K of data on each cooperative flow by utilizing Containers. ECI v2 also allows the CICS Transaction Gateway (CTG) to be located on a different machine than the client applications. This allows for a smaller client footprint and for the configuration/administration of the CTG to be centralized. CA Gen will continue to support ECI v1 for backward compatibility.
We are looking for beta testers to give us feedback on functionality and quality. The feature enables users to select ECI v1 or v2, so we welcome both user types. Are you available?
Who: ECI v1 or ECI v2 users
When: A beta version will be available within the next couple weeks.
