The CICS terms in the following table describe the structure and operation of the CICS Interface:
|Task||A unit of processing required for the execution of a particular transaction.|
|Transaction||A unit of processing that consists of one or more application programs started by a single request.|
|A Teradata-supplied transaction that manages the operation of the CICS Interface.|
|A CICS transaction characterized by dialog with a user. Such a transaction waits for user input and responds with output data.|
|A CICS transaction designed to appear to the user as a continuous conversation occurring as part of a single transaction.
Unlike a conversational transaction, a pseudo-conversational transaction does not use CICS resources while waiting for user input.
|Transid||The four-character abbreviation of a CICS Interface transaction. Same as CICS transid.|
