Hi, We have a Java based front end application and behind each screen a CICS transaction is triggered.

I need to built a tool where I can keep a log of transactions which were hit in CICS region when a particular screen was attempted. Also I would like to keep there stim(input) and response(outputs) so that if required I can refer back to them.

As the transaction logging volume would be too high so I will prefer keeping logs for 15 mins to half an hour only.

Could you please give me some startup idea regarding how can I build such a tool using?

speak to Your cics support group to see if something is already in place

almost every organisation has had the need to track the usage of some transaction / program

so You might get lucky

investigate also the use of the cics statistics, You might get what You want by using the CICS provided tools

This idea is by yourself or someone else asking you? If someone else then tell them to buy a tool instead of reinventing the wheel which needs deep system knowledge, resources and support staff post deployment and still the outcome is not guaranteed.

Tools like Mainview for CICS, or Omegamon or CICS PA can do this. But it would be very difficult and complex task to write a tool by yourself from scratch.
