Hi all,

I've just heard here that a module coded in C language will be used as a validation routine in the project.

The request will be started outside the mainframe from a web based interface and it will call a transaction in the mainframe. After that the C module will be called for some validations.

I'd like to clarify whether there would be a C compiler for the mainframe or whether the following would be possible (Using mainframe as a interface to the C module) :

Process following this path : web request - mainframe - cics - online transaction - cics - C module(outside the mainframe).

Returning the response thru : C module(outside the mainframe) - cics - online transaction - mainframe - web interface(gets the answer)

Did anybody have a problem like this ?

Thanks !

We don't see such scenario much.C module is doing validations that too outside mainframes:?
If it is outside mainframes then it ought to be 'Open system's C'.
I have worked on a system where CICS has web interface and validations are performed in Javascript (much easier to work with web interface).
I am thinking know how C will perform validations through web interface?
