by the way, we are using CICS , there is no connection to IMS.

The google result all returned IMS related information on batch terminal, which is not what I want.

Hello,

Then why are you looking at Batch Terminal?

What does someone believe can be done with this?

Are you defining a terminal (with preset security) for use with a STT (Sequential Terminal Table), used to issue CEMT commands as an older alternative to a PLT-PI program?

Otherwise, I'm unsure what you mean....

The term "Batch Terminal" mentioned here, means , there is a dataset which contains thousands of records, and each record is supposed to be processed via CICS transaction.
Is there any other meaning of 'Batch Terminal'?

Yes, and as you found out it deals with IMS.

It is best NOT to make up your own terminology with out making sure your term is not already used. When you DO make up a term, you need to define it, not just name it as though everyone would know what you mean.

Why does someone believe that these "thousands of records" should be processed by cics transactions? It makes much more sense to simply process them in batch. CICS is not intended to process high volumes of sequential file data.

for instance, every month, a company , take IBM for example, pay its employee salary through bank's batch payment business. that is, every employee's salary is processed via CICS online transaction, if there are thousands of employees in IBM, all these records are supposed to be processed via online transaction respectively.

Hello,

Individual entries would be made online.

You just said "pay its employee salary through bank's batch payment business" which is how this process should also work. Payroll payments everywhere i've ever been are bacth processes.

IMHO it is utter nonsense to try to run the batch payroll (or any other large batch run) in cics causing lots of performance issues. . . When there are problems (and there will be) restart/rerun/recovery becomes more problematic as well.
