Hi,

I'm looking for some information on options (tools) available to expose CICS as a web service (Outbound communication). If anyone has worked on such things or is aware of different options available, Kindly help!

Thanks & Best regards!

Hello,
We have a system like this, but it is done via RSP (Remote Stored Procedure). We use TCP/IP as the communication channel to communicate between the webpages and the Mainframe.

With regards,
Souvik

We are conducting a proof-of-concept with vendors that offer packages for this. To date, it looks like there are two primary players, with MS waiting in the wingsfor .NET front ends.
What we've found so far is that one important feature we hadn't thouhgt to look for was the ability to run mapping and parsing the server end, instead of in CICS - saves mainframe cycles!

We have done this in our firm recently.

Here is a IBM link to start with. RDz is optional, you can choose to do this with only CICS TS. RDzs makes life easier though.

Well, I suppose it is enthusiastic of you, but really, I don't think the information will be much use now to the person who started the topic nearly six years ago.

Well, I realized that. But I know lot of people are hitting this article now. My reply is for them, hoping they will have a less painful path than I did.

Cheers!

Without RDZ,

1. You can generate web service artifacts using IBM supplied utilities DFHWS2LS & DFHLS2WS. RDZ generated artifacts are much more efficient in terms of processing (with new versions of CICS 4.1 and later).

2. You may test the generated web services with a SOAP-UI tool which is a freeware.

Thanks.

So, do you see what you've done Amit?

There is no question, and now two posts about solutions.

No-one is going to investigate the relevance of either of the "answers", because no-one has a question. So they'll sit there. Someone else might pile in, if we are unlucky. Then we'll have three.

A pointless exercise. Even for those thousands of people looking at this topic (and not asking questions) either or both of the "responses" could send them up an inappropriate track for their site.
