2. Transfer the generated XML converter to IBM z/OS
IMS Connect has an XML adapter function that converts data between XML and bytes, based on a deployed converter driver. Typically, to deploy a converter driver, you need to complete these two tasks:
- Use FTP to transfer the XML converter driver that is generated by Rational Developer for System z to the z/OS system.
- Compile and link the XML converter driver into a data set that is concatenated to the STEPLIB in the IMS Connect startup JCL (job control language).
This IMSPHBKD.cbl converter driver is part of the sample that is included with IMS Connect. Therefore, no action is needed here. You can proceed directly to task 3: Deploy WSDL and configure properties with IMS SOAP Gateway.
