Hi,

I am working in a shop where we have multiple ERP's . (Mainframe,SAP etc) . Currently we are working on a project wherein the requirement is to build a common dashboard(webpage) that can be launched from different systems (in our case - Mainframe) to view / update details through the web page. XYZ details need to be picked up from different systems,including Mainframe.

We have worked on passing data from Web to Mainframe using TIBCO API's and vice versa. But we are looking for a way to launch a webpage through CICS.

If the user is logged in to Mainframe, and wants to see the XYZ details ,can we use a function key in CICS screen and launch the webpage?

We are using Microfocus Rumba to run Mainframe application.

Thanks in advance

I guess the weblink needs to be handled by the emulator like a "hotspot" with a clickable button.

Your best option is to ask Microfocus support if such a functionality exists.

You can have a web service client on the mainframe connect to a web service provider on the server side. But, the architecture could get tricky because you have to deal with the possibility the CICS client won't get a response.
