Pinned topic CICS Provided Web Services

‏2013-04-19T16:45:07Z | cics services soap web wsdl


I am working with a mainframe group that is using CICS 4.1 to expose web services.  They define a COBOL copybook that is the Web Service interface, then run it through LS2WS program that in turn exposes the structure as a web service.  Generally it works fine.  However, we have a problem with repeating groups.  We have a situation where the return on a web service inquiry can be anywhere from 1 to 25 objects.  The problem is that CICS *always* returns 25 objects even if there is only one return.  The other 24 are just blank.  This is introducing a lot of overhead and extra processing.  We cannot seem to figure out how to fix that.

Does anybody know how this might be addressed?
