Need all the veterans help on the below query:

Is it possible to call a web service from a COBOL program running in batch, in OS 390?

it would be great if i could get some sample programs or documentation to read on.

Regards,
Sunil

I ended up writing a REXX to call the Unix command.

It sets up the parms needed to run the 'curl' Unix command, then it parses the XML that comes back. The output is a flat file suitable for my COBOL program.

Somebody on here pointed me in that direction.

You can also use that CICS EZASOKET program in batch if you want to do all the I/O yourself. I did it as a lark, and decided that it wasn't production worthy.
