The CICS Transaction Gateway for z/OS V9.1 open beta includes new capabilities enabling HTTP clients to invoke COMMAREA or Channel-based CICS programs using JSON data, while benefiting from the established high availability and instrumentation features which CICS Transaction Gateway customers already rely upon.
Based upon the WS BIND data transformation technology and tooling already used for CICS Transaction Server web services, the proven reliability and scalability of CICS TG delivers further options for robust integration of JSON web services with CICS Transaction Server. Compatibility with z/OS Connect also means that investment in the creation of WS BIND files for JSON data transformation is reusable, allowing the transfer of these assets between z/OS Connect-compatible solutions.
