Using Web Service for Integrating Mainframe Applications

Post by a2FycGFnYW » Fri, 05 Nov 2004 19:15:02


Since WebServices are a standardized way to invoke a method of another
application over the internet, is there a way to integrate two different
applications running on different platforms (Say a .NET client application,
used for implementing the presentation logic, and a mainframe application
that contains the business logic). Is there a way to call the .NET web
service from the mainframe application / expose the buiness logic in the
mainframe application as a Web Service .

There's a company called Seagull Software that lets you to expose
mainframe busines logic as a Web service. They have a product called
Transidiom that does that.

Here's their Website: http://www.yqcomputer.com/

Hi,

You might also want to talk to your IBM rep. They have some great tools
for doing exactly this.

Using Web Service for Integrating Mainframe Applications

There are a few tools in the marketplace that will allow you to do this
successfully. I would suggest you take a look at the recent gartner analysis
and check out the vendors listed there from exposing mainframe transactions
as Web Services. I would also suggest looking for a solution that allows for
both publishing and consuming a web service. One of the vendors mentioned,
GT Software, will allow you to invoke a Web Service from the mainframe and
return the data to build what they call a Composite Mainframe Web Service.
Here is the link the the recent analysis report:
