This article provides an introduction to using DB2® pureXML® with CICS® applications written in Common Business Oriented Language (COBOL). XML is playing an increasingly important role in CICS applications. Therefore, the need to store and query XML in CICS applications is growing. This article describes two scenarios for using CICS with DB2 pureXML. The first scenario shows how to store inbound XML Web service messages in DB2 pureXML without first parsing the messages in CICS. The second article shows how a CICS application can retrieve XML data from DB2 and transmit it through a Web service. The article provides sample source code that you can download.
