[CICS Transaction Server book]
Murach's CICS Desk Reference

By Menendez and Lowe

Menendez and Lowe have been writing programmers' books longer than I can remember. They believe in keeping up to date with the latest technology - and that's what they've done in this latest CICS TS desk reference of theirs that should be on the desk of every serious CICS programmer. An easy-to-use CICS command reference makes up the bulk of the book. But there is also new or expanded material on CICS program design, creating HTML documents from BMS mapsets for web-based CICS applications, defining CICS resources.

[CICS Transaction Server COBOL programming]
Murach's CICS for the COBOL programmer

By Menendez and Lowe

Murach's CICS for the COBOL programmer: I've never been disappointed by any of Murach's books. They are all well written. These authors make a very technical subject seem like a piece of cake. You'll see the words "how to..." all over the place. What I like best are the abundant examples of actual code - you won't be left in the dark with this CICS book! The COBOL programmer wishing to learn CICS will find this book ideal.
