Hi there, We have CICS Web services, MQ DPL and piloting with z/OS connect. The question I have is about CICS web service and options available to design a flexible service interface.

Generally CICS web service interface translates to fixed copybook , so we are needing to make change for every new field that needs to get through the interface. we are looking to design a flexible host solution that can dynamically handle new variables coming through the interface , store dynamically in DB2 generic table structure and apply appropriate rules.

Explored the following for flexible service interface,

1) JSON key value pairs (which again on parsing converts to fixed copybook layout),
2) XML unbounded arrays (Array field length is fixed)

we are mainframe team with not much exposure to latest technologies, frame work and patterns available for mainframe service integration/flexible interfcae. Any expert insights will be greatly appreciated.

many thanks for taking the time to read the query.
