In CICS a background TASK/transaction,
is a TASK which is not ATTACHED/RELATED/ASSOCIATED to a TERMINAL.
( I prefer ATTACHED )

The referred link gave a very good explanation of a
background transaction!!

What else were You looking for ??

Hello,

If you explain what you are looking for in more detail, someone will be able to answer.

It appears what you know as a "batch transaction" and what some others know are not the same.

Might you be talking about transactions run in a batch job via jcl?

We use MQSeries. It is a messaging product from IBM.

Data arrives in queues and gets processed. Almost always, we process this data in Background CICS.

Apart from the MQseries stuff, the systems programmers here are very reluctant to allow us to code background CICS transactions. They are worried that some transactions will flood the region with started background transactions...
