Hello, I may have to start working on 16 years old CICS system which uses BTS and I never worked before but I only know CICS in usual way of programming (without BTS).
I try to know BTS is all about controlling and maintains the multiple transaction (activity/process) like acting as a child / parent to each other transaction or program for various triggered events and then there is something BTS containers to pass the data to and forth which are restart able . But then with the START and TDQ's or LINK we could achieve the same then why is it that BTS has its importance still? Any real-time time examples to support how BTS works ?

I am just collecting pieces of knowledge together and understanding BTS before even I start taking the programs in hand.

Manuals are a good source and I am reading them but especially looking for any more real-time time situations where they are used.
Thanks,
Rohit

Thanks for the link , yes I read this before but I would like to know without BTS also we could trigger multiple transactions and work on multiple level of activities also any realtime examples of BTS is appreciate as to how each functionality is mapped and worked out with BTS.
