Hi,

I have an online mainframe application based on Enterprise Cobol and CICS.

I need to access data from a remote SQL server from my CICS-COBOL program.

Can I use a webservice for this? Is it possible to call a webservice from a CICS-COBOL program? If yes, does anyone have an example?

Thanks and Regards,
Anu

if I remember correctly the SE career steps were/are

trainee
associate
systems engineer
---
advisor
senior
consultant

the systems engineer rank was considered as full position and anybody would get it ( sooner or later )
for higher ranks You had to deserve it

the senior rank was roughly equivalent to a first level manager
and it was published in the IBM bulletin board

but it looks like things have changed a bit nowadays
frankly I see a bit awkward to see an IBM senior asking for free consultancy on a public forum

even for the systems engineer position one of the appraisal items
was the knowledge of and capacity of using the IBM internal resources

What kind of connection is there between your CICS region and the remote SQL server? That will largely determine what you can do.

Thanks for the response.

There is no current connection between the CICS and SQL server.

I have a DB2 backend and the SQL server is another application's database. We need to access some data from there for a specific requirement and this has to be in real time.

I know MQ is an option. But will webservice work? It's easier for us to use web service because we already use that in some of our distributed applications.

Between, I am using IBM enterprise Cobol for z/OS 3.4.1.

Thanks and Regards,
Anu



Note: I am just using all available resources I have and that defenitely has IBM internal help as the first one.

should get you started. I haven't implemented any CICS Web Services so I can't say for sure what's involved, but it doesn't look that hard from what I've seen.
