Enhancements to IBM® Rational® Application Developer for WebSphere® Software V9.0.1 added new capabilities for application integration between disparate enterprise environments, such as those made up of IBM WebSphere Application Server, CICS®, IMS™, and batch processing on z/OS®, and environments that contain SAP, Oracle, Seibel, and other IBM WebSphere Adapter-supported enterprise information systems. Support for optimized local adapters is now included in Rational Application Developer, offering optimized bi-directional calling between WebSphere Application Server for z/OS and external address space applications on the same z/OS system. Combining optimized local adapters with the WebSphere Adapters support presents many new opportunities for real time interactions between applications and environments that were too complex to realistically handle in the past. This article presents one such scenario, in which a CICS application uses optimized local adapters and WebSphere Application Server for z/OS to communicate with applications running on SAP servers.
