On the same lines as in the above blog, through the last decade, the demands for connecting into an SOA environment kept on growing. As they say, demands for being able to participate in SOA grew as businesses kept growing in an unorthodox manner and required flexible connectivity across heterogeneous systems. Order of the day is to change or extend when demand warranted while not modifying existing systems. TXSeries enables end to end distributed mixed language SOA through integration with WAS and CICS Transaction Server on z/OS.
Imagine a simple extension to the figure shown in the blog below,
TXSeries participate in an SOA with
- JCA interface provided in CICS TG connecting TXSeries with products like WebSphere ESB, WebSphere Application Server etc.
- TXSeries and WebSphere MQ connecting to WebSphere Message Broker or any other product that WebSphere MQ can connect to.
Again participation is one way or in-bound only. But this enables disparate systems connecting into TXSeries and therefore connecting with existing , proven mixed language applications.
